Hi, I created this for someone I care about. She has an eye disease called Keratoconus, we need $25,000 to cover for her procedures.

Diana Etienne was born in Arnold Palmer Hospital in Orlando Florida on February 11, 1991. She was born 3 months early due to a car accident that her mother was in. The doctors warned Mr.Jean Etienne and Mrs. Bertha Etienne that Diana was going to have complications with her eyes when she gets older. The doctor couldn't be more right on that. While growing up Diana started wearing glasses to help with her vision. While in high school her vision continued to worsen. In 2010 she was diagnosed with Keratoconus. Keratoconus is degenerative condition characterized by conical protrusion of the cornea and irregular astigmatism. To make it easier, her cornea is forming a cone shape which is destroying her vision. Most people believe that a Cornea transplant would solve the problem. Wrong, even with a cornea transplant there is still a chance that the keratoconus would return. Diana is 21-years-old and she's suffering, because of her eye condition she is unable to continue with her daily life. She cannot go to school because of her eye condition, she cannot see well so driving is out of the question amd finally she cannot work due to the fact that she's unable to see what she is given to do. For the people whose asking about glasses and contacts, she wears them to no positive advantages. When she wears contacts she gets horrible migraines. There is still a chance for Diana Etienne to get the help that she needs. There's a doctor that goes by the name Dr. Brian Boxer Wachler who specializes in this field. Dr. Brian has been the expert on numerous national television and radio shows discussing modern treatments for Keratoconus that can improve vision and save people from cornea transplants. We ask you please give Diana Etienne a fighting chance, do not allow her to go completely blind, help restore her life back so she can enjoy the sweet taste that this world has to offer through sight. We are not asking for much, just $1 or how much you are willing to donate would be a blessing from you guys and closer to her getting the help that she desperately needs. Please Everyone donate.
