Demetra is a 38 year old and is daughter to Loujean Brittain.

Demetra is a 38 year old mother, wife, daughter, sister, aunt and niece with liver failure in need of a liver transplant. Demetra has fought autoimmune disease since she was 9 years old starting with hypothyroidism. At the age of 16 she was diagnosed with idiopathic thrombocytopenia purpura or ITP a autoimmune disease where her spleen destroys and removes the platelets from her blood. At the age of 20 she had a splenectomy at 25 weeks pregnant with her only son RJ. After giving birth to RJ she had a couple of miscarriages and learned she carried the lupus anti-coagulant antibodies which prevents her to have full term pregnancies. So RJ is surely a miracle child. After giving birth to RJ she live life I the fullest being a great mom and wife. Five years ago Demetra was diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis which her immune system acknowledges her liver as a foreign object and attacks it. By the time she showed any symptoms of this disease she had severe liver damage. The doctors said she would require a liver transplant within 3 years. Well two years beyond that prediction and several immune system flare ups later she is in liver failure and requires a liver transplant. Demetra is only 38 years old and has a long life ahead of her and wants to be there to see her grandchildren graduate for high school and college. In order to receive a new liver we need to raise $300,000. We would greatly appreciate if you can help us raise the funds necessary to save Demetra by donating to the fund. Any amount would would be appreciated.  As a perk for every $1 that you donate your name will be entered into a drawing for a Rare Georgene Raggedy Ann & Andy pair.  So if you donate $10 your name will be entered 10 times and so on.  Demetra's Mother, Loujean, is my best rips my heart out when I talk to hear a mother's cry who is fearful of losing her child.

Georgene Raggedy Ann & Andy Pair
  • 52 claimed
For every $1 donated your name will be entered into a drawing to win this Rare pair of Georgene Raggedy Ann & Andy dolls. So if you donate $10 your name will be entered 10 times. To be fair an online service will be used to randomly pick the name of the winner and the results will be posted when the fundraiser is over. These dolls are really special to me...but Demetra and Loujean are far more special. Please note that you cannot buy this perk...if you donate you will have a chance of winning these dolls.
