Help Give Pam a Second Chance!
At the young age of 24, Parmjit Kaur, known by friends and family as Pam, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), a typically progressive disease involving damage to the sheaths of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord.Symptoms may include numbness, impairment of speech and muscular coordination, blurred vision, and severe fatigue. As a result of her condition, Pam is no longer able to run, spend time with friends outdoors on Summer days, or walk long distances. For a number of years Pam tried various medications to treat her MS, all of which had adverse reactions and made her extremely sick. The medications caused her to have ongoing fevers, severe hair loss, and a myriad of other symptoms. When the medications started to alter her typically cheery personality, Pam had to make the difficult decision to stop taking medication and look for alternative treatments to preserve her quality of life. It was then she learned about a life-saving treatment that has proved promising to the MS Community, known as Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation, or HSCT.

Hello, everyone! I realize I haven't posted an update in a while and for that I apologize!
As I write this, my right hand is having trouble typing as muscles in my hand fall weak from exhaustion and overuse. Every day is a reminder of why I need this treatment so badly. I am desperately hoping to have this treatment done before I get worse.
I want to take this time to thank everyone that has been supportive and donated to my cause. I am so appreciative of you! May you be blessed the way you have blessed me! Your kindness will not go unnoticed. THANK YOU!
