The family and friends of Jennifer Simmons are uniting to help her battle against Chronic Lyme Disease. Please show your support.

As many of you know my beautiful wife Jen has been suffering since December with spontaneous fainting, seizures, memory loss, chronic 24 hour a day severe pain throughout her entire body, dimentia, halucinations, chronic fatigue - sleeping 16 hours a day, a menegioma (a tumor growing just above her brain) just to name a few of the issues, Well after seeing 14 doctors it has been determined she has DISSEMINATED LYME DISEASE. An advanced form of Lyme Disease that attacks the entire body. Without proper treatment is 100 % debilitating to the point of death.
Luckily we have caught it early enough to receive a treatment plan that can give Jen her life back.
She now has a PICC line in her arm so she can receive daily doses of high antibiotics, We have a nurse that comes to the house to help her, adminster medications, change dressings, draw labs etc.. This will continue daily for the next 2 months. She will be reevaluated for the next course of action at that point.
The treatment though comes at a tremendous cost.
Many of our friends have asked "What can we do?"
Well even after insurance pays we are still facing large medical expenses. So to answer your question we humbly ask your assistance. Jen is facing enough just trying to heal, you see her condition will worsen with the antibiotics before she gets better. To take away the stress and worry of financial burden will help us both focus on her care. I have tried working extra hours however I am needed more at home with three kids, one being a VERY active baby.
So here is your chance. Make a difference in someones life.
I EXTEND THIS CHALLENGE !
I have scheduled this fundraiser to end on JUNE 5th. Jen's 41st Birthday. Will you donate $41 by her birthday? $141?? If not... how about what ever amount you can and send a link to this fundraiser to 41 of your friends.

Thank you all for your generosity and well wishes. Feel free to post your well wishes or comments to Jen's facebook page or mine
