Our dear friend, Sandra Yackimec- Kwitkoski, is very sick. She has been struggling since March with heart and kidney issues, and with soaring high blood pressure, all due to adrenal gland dysfunction. She had a CT scan recently and it revealed a large mass on her left adrenal gland.

The next step is for her to have an MRI, so that it can be determined if she would be a candidate for adrenal surgery to remove the mass. However, she's been given an August 2015 (!!) appointment for that MRI.

She doesn't feel she'll make it that long in her current condition because she needs to take lots and lots of medications to control her current symptoms, but the side effects of the medications themselves are making her really sick too. 

There is a private clinic where she can get the MRI scan done relatively quickly, but it will cost her $1,930 - money she doesn't have. Sandra would dearly appreciate any help, but she doesn't want to impose on anyone. She is so crushed by the medications and her sickness that she doesn't even know where to start in asking for help.

Can we all come together to help her pull through this ordeal?

Sandra is the mother of four, with two young children still at home, a gentle birth advocate and all round lovely woman. Let's get her arms back in the air and that smile back on her face!

(The goal amount of this campaign is the total of the MRI plus the fees for fundrazr.)
