Abi is a beautiful, loving 15 year old girl who has been bravely fighting her illness for several years.
She has been receiving infusions and chemotherapy which has assisted in keeping the damage under control, however her medical aid is refusing to pay for the treatment!!
Without this treatment, she will rapidly become immobile and could be fatal! Please help us raise money to keep her on the treatment!
She has CRMO. Chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO) ("multifocal" because it can erupt in different sites, primarily bones; "osteomyelitis" because it is very similar to that disease but appears to be without any infection), also known as chronic recurring multifocal osteomyelitis, is a rare condition (1:1,000,000), in which the bones have lesions, inflammation, and pain. Its definition is evolving. There is no cure.
