Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy: Raise Money and Hope for Treatment
Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy couldn’t stop Fallon Mirsky. At just 30 years old she has been diagnosed with the severe, life-threatening disease called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy: a nerve disease that creates hypersensitivity/pain to every little touch. Fallon has also been diagnosed with severe autonomic dysfunction, severe gastroparesis, and a brain tumor.
As part of her reflex sympathetic dystrophy treatment, she takes over 50 pills per day and undergoes weekly ketamine comas in New York, a therapy that intentionally induces comas, “to help reset her pain connections.”
She will now travel to Florida to receive more intensive ketamine comas, a treatment like many reflex sympathetic dystrophy treatments that is not covered by insurance.
Only 8 hospitals in the nation can do this transplant procedure and it carries the highest rejection rate of any transplant. The family is also constantly traveling all the way to California to Stanford Medical Center to receive her treatment and await her transplant.
As these treatments and travel expenses continue to add up, the Mirsky Family is trying to raise $50,000 to help alleviate their financial burden of Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy.
Fallon is the epitome of true inspiration and fearlessness. Her life dream is to become a doctor to help the less fortunate and help others. If you know a hero, send a photo of your hug to email@example.com and we will post on our Facebook.
