The family of Teresa Mayne is uniting to raise money to help pay for a life saving surgery. Please show your support!

My neice, Jessica Mayne, has asked me to start a fundraiser to raise funds for her mom who needs a surgery to save her life. She has no insurance and very little income right now. I ask everyone that can put in something even if it is just a little to help her daughter raise money for her mom so she can have the suregery. She has a rare disorder called Achalasia.(Achalasia is a disorder of the tube that carries food from the mouth to the stomach (esophagus), which affects the ability of the esophagus to move food toward the stomach). She has tried the other alternatives to surgery but none have been sucessful.She suffers from backflow (regurgitation) of food, chest pain, which may increase after eating or may be felt in the back, neck, and arms, cough, difficulty swallowing liquids and solids, heartburn, and weight loss. Also breathing food contents into the lungs, which can cause pneumonia, is highly likely for her. Teresa is a great mom to 4 children who she has worked hard her entire life to provide for. She now cannot work like she use to since her condition has worsened so much.
