Kari continues to make strides in her recovery since her transplant at NorthWestern in Chicago this past February. Recovery has been going very slow, but Kari finally feels that some of her MS symptoms may be improving. Fatigue from the strong medications and the transplant process is still preventing Kari from holding a job; all the while medical bills, transportation and lodging fees from the transplant continue to roll in each day. Kari is still in great need of your continued thoughts, prayers and most of all your financial support. She needs your financial support to help maintain her health, pay for her out-of-pocket transplant fees, and even her costly living expenses. Thank you for your continued love and support for Kari, and most of all your generous donation. Love, Kari's mother, Sue Root

Just a quick update, I heard back from the transplant center and they are ready to book my transplant. They got the insurance approval. So just trying to figure out a date that would work for the family. I am getting very nervous but yet excited to get ball rolling and get on my way to getting better! I have been off my MS medication tysabri for close to 2 years now trying to get approved for this. They require you don't have any MS medication in your system for 6 months prior. I went off July 2013, and it just has taking this long to get where we are now! So I can definitely feel the effects of not being on any medication. So hoping we can get there soon! Thank everyone who has supported me though this very big journey in my life, this is going to be the hardest thing I ever have to do but worth it so I can get better for my kids and me too....will update with my dates I go when I know more! Again thanks to everyone <3

Kari and I have made one trip to Chicago for evaluation. The Doctors accepted her for the stem cell transplant and are positive she will benefit from treatment. We are awaiting her schedule. Will...
