My daughter has lost everything, her job, which provided insurance for MS treatment and now she struggles to pay Cobra to continue treatment My daughter Courtney was diagnosed with MS at the age of 16, she has a Great Education, had a Great Job, but due to her MS has lost her job which provided her with the insurance she needed to get treatment for her MS, She is currently 30, she has worked hard through all of this and she was receiving monthly infusions of Tysabri, but can no longer receive treatment, she is struggling to try and pay Cobra plus all living expenses on 1300.00 monthly, she lives very modestly and receives no other assistance although she has applied, she was denied as she has no children and is not married! I would love to be able to see my daughter get back on her treatment as her condition is getting worse but without being able to raise this money it is not possible, please can you find it in your heart to donate? Any amount would be appreciated, our family has been through so much, we lost a son at 13, he collapsed suddenly while participating in Gym class at school and it is breaking my heart once again to see another of my children lose a battle that can be won with proper treatment, we have 4 adopted special needs children as well, money is tight being the mother of 6 remaining children, and I have squeezed my budget to the point of having nothing left to give! Can you help get my daughter the treatment that she needs, all we are trying to do is get 12 months of Cobra paid for MS destroys the fatty coating on nerves — a process called demyelination — rendering them dysfunctional. The exposed nerves disrupt the signals the brain tries to send to the rest of the body, making some movements difficult and causing considerable fatigue.
