My sister, Lisa, is tragically afflicted with Dysautonomia, a complex heart condition, and several other serious ailments related to this debilitating disease. She has been battling this for years. The last 3/4 years have been the hardest when the Dysautonomia took control of her life and her passion, her admirable work. Lisa was a vibrant, energetic, and active humanitarian who dedicated her work to non-profit organizations for 20+ years. She is giving, caring and exceptional in her kindness. Her goal of joy and peace for the world is phenomenal. When this disease struck she became bedridden. She sees a wonderful doctor, Dr. Swilling, who improved her nutrition and changed her regimen that at least gets her out of bed sporadically. But she's getting worse. Sadly, there hasn't been a cure. And most medications caused terrible counter effects. The specialists have been perplexed with how to treat her condition because it is rare and her symptoms do not fit the usual. Severe chronic fatigue and horrible weakness, extremely low blood pressure combined with dangerously low heart rate (to the point where others would die), leaky heart valves, mini-strokes (TIA), pain throughout her body (especially her legs and hands), foggy brain, Raynaud's disease, fibromyalgia, equilibrium issues, limb numbness, and constant fevers are her most significant symptoms. She suffers. She puts on a smiley face when she has the energy and tries to even when she's exhausted and in pain. But as you can imagine, she is miserable.

Now there are two main procedures and other treatments that could help her. They are expensive and insurance does not cover them. TVAM and stem cell therapy (using stem cells from her own body) are innovative and proven to help relieve the symptoms of this unrelenting disease. My sister needs them. They're the only chance she has to end her suffering and get her life back. She is an asset to society and is a totally and completely good soul. Everyone loves her. If you were to meet her you would too.

I ask for your help so she could have these procedures as soon as possible and get to live again. To see her have hope is such a beautiful thing. 

Please help. You will have our undying gratitude.
