Welcome family and friends to my fundraising page!

First thank you for taking the time to visit my page and reading my story.

I'm a Scleroderma patient and was diagnoised over 10 years ago.

Systemic Scleroderma is a rare autoimmune disease that only affects a known 300,000 people in America.

I've been living with this disease and over time I have been a overall healthy patient, until now. This disease is taking over my life. Although I may not look like I'm ill. I'm suffering from the inside out. It's slowly taking over my lungs, chest and heart. I suffer from Raynauds which causes painful ulcers on my hands and it's only getting worse. There aren't many treatment options for this disease. The real truth is, there is no cure and the quality of life is difficult and eventually fatal.

After years of reasearching my disease I finally found an opportunity to get well again through a Stem Cell Transplant.

I waited 3 long years to go to Chicago to be seen by Dr Burt at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. The outcome was bittersweet for me because it was verified that my disease is progressing, but I'm approved for my transplant!

This disease has caused a lot of pain, anxiety and heartache for myself and my family. The thought of dying at a young age and not being able to raise my kids truly breaks my heart.

I'm asking you to please help me raise donations to get me back to Chicago for my transplant. Your donations will go toward my Medicare portion to recieve my transplant as well lodging and travel during the outpatient stages until I'm admitted for transplant.

I will be posting status updates as things progress and throughtout my treatment.

Thank you everyone for stopping by and giving any donations! I'm very grateful and blessed with any help I can get.   

Love to you all my family and friends!

Sabrina
