Colleen has been battling Lyme disease for 3 years now. The battle has exhausted the family physically and financially. We need your help!

Hello friends and family, I am humbled and in awe of all the help our family has received over the last 2 years. It has been amazing. But I am now coming and asking for more help. My sister-in-law Colleen was diagnosed with Lyme disease almost 3 years ago, and her battle has been very long and very exhaustive, physically, emotionally, and financially. We are still in the thick of things and in need of more help for her and for her family. Her husband Jaris has been a champion for her and their 3 children as he tirelessly gives of himself to be her caregiver, but she is still in need of a additional care. She is wheelchair bound, dependent on a breathing machine, and needs assistance with all motor skill functions. We are asking for help to pay for that care. She has an amazing caregiver Kim that works during the week, but more help is necessary to alleviate the stress on the family. In-home health care is very expensive and insurance only goes so far. We really need to get more funds available to allow them to get the correct help that she needs. Colleen is FULL of faith and hope and knows that the Lord is her healer, and we all are fully on board with that revelation. She is battling so hard, she is the strongest woman I know. I have watched her and Jaris go through intense battles and yet they hold fast to the promises of God. They are an incredible team and I admire them both greatly, BUT ... this battle is too hard to fight alone. They need our help. I know many of you have given before and it is so appreciated but this is a much longer battle than any of us anticipated. Please be a part of their team, give what you can to help get more assistance to both Jaris and Colleen. Above all continue your prayers for Colleen. They are coveted by all in her family!
