The friends and family of Mikayla Clark are banding together to help her get back on her feet and out of pain.

My wonderful cousin, Mikayla, has found herself nearly bed ridden with pain this summer. After lots of testing and chasing symptoms, she has finally been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, some kind of rogue gastrointestinal inflammation, and severe/chronic pain. Although this is a relief after years of doctor's visits and mystery, it has left her body, and wallet, in a hairy state.

Mikayla (Mac), along with her hubby Dwayne, own and run Clark Acres. Clark Acres is a ranch for animals and their people. One of their main aspects is rescuing, rehabilitating and training horses and dogs. Mac is an incredibly caring animal lover who's heart is always open to helping abused and neglected pets.
On good days, Mac works on the ranch, teaching people how to listen to their horses and develop trust with their dogs. She has had many students and countless thankful clients. The pain and vertigo of her illnesses has left her unable to get out of bed many days or driver herself to appointments. But more than that, Mikayla is unable to continue her life's work of saving and rehabilitating animals.

Because of the wily nature of fibromyalgia, Mikayla has wisely chosen to treat her illness with diet, professional pain management, and physical therapy in order to alleviate the symptoms and lift her out of the pain spiral that she has fallen into. The goal is to be pain free without loading her body up with drugs.

With your contributions, Mac will be able to pay for co-pays and things like physical therapy that insurance doesn't cover. Also the funds will pay for gas as friends help out and drive her to myriads of appointments. The $5000 goal should cover expenses for 3 months. We all know that this amount of time isn't huge over a lifetime, but we have faith that three months of pain management, professional dietary consultation, and physical therapy will let her nerves desensitize and free Mac from the crippling pain that has pervaded her life. Please help us create a pain-free miracle for Mac. No contribution is too small and all are so hugely appreciated.
