I am a Lupus Warrior

I am a Lupus Warrior

Personal message

Recently, my 12-year-old daughter, Mercédi was diagnosed with an Autoimmune disease Systemic LUPUS Erythematosus. We had no idea was Lupus is and we couldn't imagine how it will change her life and our lives forever. We were not prepared for the physical and psychological challenges she would experience.

Mercédi has been experciencing extreme hair loss, arthritis, daily severe joint pains, headaches etc.

We were not prepared for the financial challenges associated with Lupus. Due to her health not improving she was hospitalized a few times and with the countless doctor visits and medical interventions, our medical funds were depleted. We, her mom & dad humbly request that you assist us with a small contribution to our medical expenses.

Any contribution will be gratefully appreciated and accepted.
Our medical savings has been depleted in a matter of a few weeks. We are not able to cope with all the expenses associated with the illness. This is an ongoing illness that is not curable but treatable.

The funds will be used for the current and future medical bills for 2019. It will cover doctors bills, out of hospital creams, vitamins, clothing and other apparel needed to cover her from the sun and sunlight.
She will have access to the range of doctors that are looking after her recovery
Rheumatologist- Dr Kate Webb
Dermatologist- Dr Sean Christians
Paediatrician- Dr Allan Puterman

Paediatric Nephrologist- Dr Paul Sinclair

 

We appreciate all your kind words and messages. Thank you for your prayers and support. 

Mercédi & Family
