Amber was diagnosed with a rare auto-immunity, Neuro Myelitis Optica (NMO) in 2013. In 2014, after a medical procedure, she was diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis (TM). Transverse myelitis left her a quadriplegic with no use of her legs, arms and hands. After several months in the hospital and inpatient rehab facility, Amber went to recover at her Mom’s home. With strong determination and undergoing hundreds of hours of outpatient therapy Amber is now a paraplegic and is regaining a tremendous amount of strength in her arms and hands, and limited functions of her legs. Amber’s Mom is trying hard to keep her job as she is Amber’s only caregiver. Thankfully, Amber has health insurance; but it does not cover a lot of her care and other expenses, which is why we need your help.
Prior to November 2014, Amber was a very independent, outgoing; vibrant young adult with a promising career as a Food Inspector. She is a positive, encouraging, giving, loving and caring person. She was always on the go with her friends, enjoyed walking her dog, playing with her cat, fishing and most of all decorating her new home. You may have gotten to know Amber Campbell in college at Prairie View A&M University or within the Government as a Food Inspector for the U.S. Department of Commerce or in the community as a sorority member (Alpha Kappa Alpha). In spite of the many struggles she still faces, Amber remains optimistic and hopeful she will return to her home living a productive life in the community through the support of family and friends.
