Fighting a rare Mast Cell disorder, Shani Meehl and her family need your help to fund the extensive testing vital to fight her rare disorder

Shani is a 32 year old woman who has dedicated 10 years of her life as special education high schoool teacher and as a loving devoted wife and mother of two young children.

After 3 years of getting progressively sicker, Shani Meehl has a chance to fight back against the rare Mast Cell disorder she is battling.In late March (2012), Shani underwent 7 days of extensive testing at a specialized hospital in Denver, CO. However, she will need to return to Denver this summer in order to undergo invasive in hospital treatments to aide in her fight against her Mast Cell Disorder.

While the testing should help to give direction to the best form of treatment it is cripplingly expensive; the costs not covered by insurance will exceed $50,000 and that is just for the initial week spent in Denver. Shani has missed many days of work due to her ailments, so many that she no longer has sick days. Furthermore, continued treatments and progression of her disorder will mean less healthy days enjoyed.

We all know a time when we were in need and how much it meant when someone went out of their way to help. Shani,Ryan (Husband), Mya (Daughter) and Quilan (Son) are in need of your help.

Your support is hugely appreciated and anything makes a big difference. Whether you give a donation, share this on Facebook/Twitter or just give moral support you have made a difference in the lives of the Meehl Family

Thank you so much for your support!
