Clares Fight Against Hemochromatosis Campaign

Hello, I'm Clare Whittick, and I am reaching out to you through this BackaBuddy fundraiser to share my story and seek your support in my battle against a chronic illness.
My life has taken an unexpected turn due to hemochromatosis, a condition that has caused direct iron deposits in my brain, leading to a debilitating arm tremor. As a single mother of four children, the weight of this illness and its financial burden has become overwhelming. With your help, I hope to secure the funds necessary to sustain my family and overcome this challenging chapter in my life.
For the past seven years, I have been dedicated to my job, working tirelessly to provide for my children. Unfortunately, the impact of hemochromatosis on my health has put my career at risk. The threat of being medically boarded is a looming reality, and this could potentially jeopardize the financial stability of my family.
Hemochromatosis is a rare genetic disorder that results in the body absorbing too much iron from the diet. Over time, this excess iron accumulates in various organs, including the brain, leading to severe complications. In my case, the direct iron deposit in my brain has triggered a debilitating tremor in my arm, making everyday tasks a significant challenge.
While I have some insurance policies in place, they are unfortunately not sufficient to cover all the medical expenses associated with hemochromatosis. The costs of ongoing treatments, therapies, and potential surgeries are substantial, and they continue to mount as my condition progresses.
I am humbly reaching out to you, my friends, family, and compassionate individuals who may be touched by my story. Your generous contributions can make a world of difference in our lives. Your support will help cover the costs of medical treatments, therapy sessions, and other essential expenses, allowing me to focus on my health and the well-being of my children.
Every donation, no matter how small, brings us one step closer to ensuring that my family and I can navigate this challenging journey with hope and resilience. Please consider donating to my BackaBuddy fundraiser, and together, we can make a positive impact on my life and the lives of my children.
I want to express my deepest gratitude for taking the time to read my story and for considering supporting my cause. Thank you for being a part of my journey.
