The daughters of Leighanne Alvis are uniting to raise money to help with the medical costs of living with Multiple Sclerosis.

Our Mom was struck with several medical issues all within a 1 year time period, (thyroid shut down, gastrointestinal issues, positive cancer screening( had surgery Dec09 last check up cancer free).
Then an unknown illness came on suddenly and was crippling and progressed quickly. It started as a bout of Vertigo at midnight on Feb 2, 2010. After a week of doctors trying to get medications correct they thought the had it under control.
To everyone suprise it came back full force 3 weeks later. They tried the meds again but this time they caused her to go temporarily blind. They stopped the meds and she suffered for months, while being sent from specialist to specialist trying to find a cause. She injured her neck, back and hips when she took a bad fall. Struggling to walk and holding onto walls, she fought trying to return to work but was unable to and lost the job and her insurance, After months of battling this unknown illness, multiple visits to doctors & numerous tests, our mother Leigh Anne was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis Aug, 2010.
The fight that she been battling for over a year has emotionally and finacially hurt her and She has struggled through it alone, yet she has kept her sense of humor through it all.
We are trying to get her the help she needs for medications, doctor visits and physical therapy to regain her balance and her strength.
Our mom was always very strong and a fighter, she was the type of person if you needed a friend or help she would be there. She's the one who rescued people and animals alike and would give you the shirt off her back if she felt you needed it more. Now she needs our help
Any donation that you can give will help her out so very much.
Thank you for helping our mom,
Heaven & Karalynn
