Hello, my name is Maya Rosado. Of all my life dealing with Eczema, this year has been the worst. Only a few weeks ago I was having fun at Disneyland with my family, enjoying the rain and everything felt normal. Today am unable to walk (although I’m working on getting back on my feet again) and unable to do most things normal kids do. I cant fully extend my legs or arms because it hurts my skin when I stretch, so I have to be carried or wheeled everywhere. I have missed almost a month of school, visiting doctors and being treated. I have improved, but only a little bit. I miss my friends, I miss being able to walk, and I miss my normal life. I really never thought this would happen to me, not now.

Today I need your help to raise funds so that we can pay for hydrotherapy treatment that was recommended to my parents (for me) by a doctor when I was little. The only hydrotherapy treatment center in the world where they specialize in treating people like me is at the Dermatology Laboratories in Avene France. There, I will be treated with spring water that has been naturally processed for years under the earth. The water there heals because of the minerals in the water. From the reviews that I have seen, most people heal from the treatment. I believe that depending on drugs just to make it through the day, everyday of my life is no way to live. This is my last resort at natural healing and I believe that change is coming.

This link has a video of a little girl much like myself, and hopefully you will understand why I have to go to France: http://youtu.be/9eCNS8mijj8

Love,

Maya
