Friends, customers, and family are uniting to raise the funds for Tess's medical costs. Please give now!

Tess was diagnosed with a motility disorder in her colon, small intestine, large intestine, and stomach. (a.k.a. intestinal paresis) three years ago.
Valiant, beautiful and strong, Tess and her family have exhaused their funds because Tess falls in an uninsured loophole since she turned 19 years old last October. She is not getting the tests she needs, nor the proper treatment and meds that the tests would verify.
Only through this medical treatment, can Tess eat anything at all. Otherwise, she cannot keep food down often times for months on end with extreme pain.
Tess needs anti-spasm meds, anti-nausea meds, pain meds, and most importantly a moisturizing med for the intestines.(which is $50 a pill and she takes 2 times daily) She also takes medicine from Canada which is not FDA approved in America. All together she takes 20 or more pills a day. Her doc has generously treated her probono but the costs of tests and meds are no longer affordable with the family's lifelong savings gone.
