Hello, world!

My name is Alli Lehane. I am a part-time college student majoring in biology. I live in New Jersey with my three wonderful cats, Tigger, Tobias Zachary, and Faith. I have the most amazing family and friends, and despite my struggles I count myself incredibly lucky to have such a wonderful support system.


Current Diagnoses:
- gastroparesis
- dysautonomia (hyperadrenergic postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome aka hyper-POTS)
- eosinophilic gastroenteritis
- thyroid tumor (currently testing for malignancy)
- autism (high functioning)
- scoliosis
- back injury (multiple herniated discs & compressed nerves)
- hearing loss
- suspected mitochondrial disease

I have a GJ feeding tube and have an upcoming consult with a surgeon to have a port placed. I suffer from ongoing vomiting due to EOS/Gastroparesis and chronic dehydration and the combination of that and being stuck so many times has left my veins a terrible mess.

Even with insurance, being sick is incredibly expensive. There are a lot of things my insurance doesn't cover that help me survive and feel the best that I can. My over the counter medications and supplements alone can cost up to $100 a month, and my family has been bearing this burden for years. I am on fixed income and money is always tight, so even a few dollars can make a BIG difference to me!
