Family and friends of Amy Sherwood are raising money for the nonprofit Help Hope Live to fund uninsured medical expenses associated with Catastrophic Illness.
Just seven short years ago, Amy Sherwood led an active, very mobile life. She enjoyed playing ball, swimming, boating, and spending time with her son. Then medical problems, characterized by continual episodes of passing out, began to plague Amy. As the doctors narrowed the diagnosis to problems with her heart and adrenal system, they also realized she could not risk standing up any longer as the falls associated with passing out were just too dangerous.
