BENEFITING: Andrea Foundation For Eds
EVENT DATE: May 06, 2017
Please listen to our story below as well.
I write with a heavy heart hinged on a rear possibility of hope. With just nineteen years of her existence and after facing constant pains and confused medications, Andrea was diagnosed with a genetic disease called Ehlers- Danlos Syndrome. This invisible disease is worst than cancer because it slowly kills from within, inflicting a lot of pain in the process. In Andrea’s case, it took several years of hospital appointments and constant complaints of pains before it was identified. By the time it was diagnosed, doctors said Andrea had Ehlers- Danlos Syndrome, type 3. At age 19, Andrea looks perfectly fine, physically. But unable to work, lift anything over 10 pounds, walk a mile or run without feeling terrible pain or fatigue. As a mother, this entire experience has been a terrible nightmare for me. Due to the constant attention that Andrea needs, I have had to take care of her and still maintain my business. But just recently, I lost my business which was my only source of financial aid. I really hope that through this platform, I would be able raise funds that will help us spread awareness of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and also prevent us from being homeless. Please send as much as you can share, I would really appreciate any help. But most importantly, I ask that you keep Andrea in your thoughts and prayers. Whether or not I reach my goal, I sincerely appreciate your time, thoughts, and prayers. This disease is not just Andrea’s battle; it’s our battle as well.
