Shera Starr Oliveria Health and Wellness Fund. The funds will be used for Starr's medical, travel and living expenses.

My dear friend Starr is diagnosed with a rare disease called ITP. She has endured fatigue, depression, pain, dysfunctional family matters, unemployment and financial challenges for far too long..

It's hard to battle a disease which has no known cure. So, in an effort to help a friend in need, I am starting this fundraiser and am praying that someone will reach out and be an angel.

Give this girl a spark of hope. She has been living with her mother in Sacramento for 17 months now. Her hope for recovery exists within the walls of UCLA, so she wants to return to Los Angeles A.S.A.P.

It is hard to live and try to recover when one has NO MONEY, NO INCOME, NO INSURANCE, NO PHONE and has to rely on just shimmers of hope that things can get better. It's beyond basic Medical Expenses. A handful of friends have showed up and helped her as well as they could, others not so much; most likely because it can seen depressing to read Facebook statuses of a person who's suffering.

There is hope! YES!!
Starr has been offered a job in L.A.
She has been offered unconventional treatments at UCLA.
She would be amongst her friends in L.A.
So, let's help her reach her goal to get her on the plus side for a change and give her that helping hand.
I believe that anything can be healed, including I.T.P.

Thank you!
