Tricia's Medical Support
Organized by: Tricia Christenbury
I have been diagnosed with Ankylosing spondylitis. It's a complicated name for a complicated disease. It's actually a type of arthritis that primarily affects the spine. It causes inflammation of the spinal joints that can cause chronic pain and discomfort. In the most severe cases as I have the inflammation can lead to new bone growth causing the vertebrae to grow together resulting in a fuse spine. Diffusing of the spine can cause extreme in flexibility and possibly become paralyzed. Our insurance has increased a great deal to the point where every appointment is $100 plus the infusions are anywhere from $150-$900 and I need six infusions just this year. We have become in a financial bind and need Extrem help, we have become in a financial bind and need Extrem help in funding to help out with my treatments. We try to always help anyone and everyone that is in need of help but during this time WE need the help and are reaching out to everyone that could possibly help us every cent counts. Prayers are also appreciated, I'm 26 years old with a three-year-old and a six-year-old that need their mommy to be in good health.
