Allison Needs Your Help

Allison was diagnosed with a very rare chronic autoimmune disease affecting her peripheral nerves called multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN). In a nutshell, Allison’s immune system is attacking her own motor nerves in her hands/arms. It develops in a chronically progressive or stepwise manner and over time leads to wasting or atrophy of the muscles controlled by the nerves. She cannot currently use her left hand or arm and her right hand is also affected. She is always completely exhausted and needs to sleep many hours every day to avoid head/body aches or feeling like she has the flu. Over time, this disease can progress to her feet/legs. She receives a 6-hour IV treatment every week to slow the progression of this disease. The IV treatment is quite expensive and they meet their high health insurance deductible and out-of-pocket maximum within the first couple months of every year. She has also tried different medical treatment options, but unfortunately none of them have helped.

Allison travels to Seattle next month for stem cell treatment. Let's raise the additional $6,000 she still needs to pay for her treatment (she has already used most of the funds listed on the fundraising thermometer and only has about $1,000 left)!

It is amazing when you ask family, friends and the community to step outside themselves and support someone. Allison begins 2017 hitting our fundraising goal. Thank you to every person that came to this page, donated time or money, or prayed.
