Medical Fundraiser for Marsha Jaramillo With Give Forward

Give Forward is a fundraiser site that allows people with medical conditions raise money toward their health care costs.  Read my story below and why I set up this fundraiser.

Lyme Disease is a silent killer of millions of people in the U.S. and around the world.  Left untreated it is allowed to attack your immune system and debilitate it's host.  I have had Lyme disease since December 2004.  I was not diagnosed until December 2005.  I am now at a turning point with my illness and have a doctor that can help me regain my health and a normal active life. 
The cost is not covered by health insurance since it is natural medicine.  And, most Lyme literate doctors do not take health insurance because the AMA interferes with their treatment methods.  Why?  I don't know.  Don't they want people to get well?  So, doctor's have had to avoid the watch dogs who prevent Lyme disease from being cured by their methods of treatment.

I can not work outside of my home, so I sell on Etsy and my own website, Markets of Sunshine.  Unfortunately, I do not make enough from all of these sources to even pay for the office visit at my doctor, which is $250.00 a visit every 6 weeks.  The medicine's are around $400 to $600 a visit.  Therefore, I started a medical fundraiser in hopes that my friends, family and total strangers would be willing to give even $10 to help me reach a budget of $12,000.00 which would give me 2 years of treatments.

I need your help!  Please, visit Give Forward today and make a donation toward my Lyme disease medical fundraiser.  Your donation is greatly appreciated and is tax deductible up to $25.
