Emma Thornton, is battling late stages of Lyme disease. She lives in the UK where they don't tend to acknowledge Lyme is an actual disease. She has found a treatment program but has to pay for it as well as the lodgings. Lyme disease is a very serious illness and can be fatal - http://lymedisease.org/    WHAT IS LYME DISEASE? Lyme disease is a bacterial infection that is spread to humans by infected ticks. The earliest and most common symptom of Lyme disease is a pink or red circular rash that develops around the area of the bite. This usually appears three to 30 days after someone is bitten. If Lyme disease is left untreated, further symptoms may develop, including: • muscle pain • joint pain and swelling of the joints • neurological symptoms, such as temporary paralysis of the facial muscles For more information, visit www.nhs.uk

Emma has been sick since 2005, going downhill all the while doctors passed her from one to another.  Emma got sicker and sicker.  She finally found a treatment program and is now getting the help she needs; however, it is not covered by insurance so she is having to pay for everything out of pocket and the numbers are sky high.  She gets IV drips and has to pay for meds and her lodging all by herself. Emma's family does not know how they will pay for all of this. 

Now I know that we cannot raise enough money to pay for all of her needs but with this fundraiser - we can make a dent in her financial horror story. As stated earlier, Emma is in the UK so the current exchange rate between the British Pound and the American Dollar is 1 Pound for $1.51.

Please consider helping Emma as she has helped so many animals both here and in the UK. Here is Emmas FB group page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Voice-for-animals/368843759851866

Always remember that one and one = two - so every dollar added to another dollar - eventually becomes alot of dollars. 

Please donate if you are able, share this fundraiser if you can and if you cannot do any of that - we always accept prayers because Emma needs all of that right now.

Emma thanks each and every person who donates, shares and prays for her.
