This is Christine's Keratoconus fund. The funds will be used for medical costs and related expenses since it's not covered under insurance.

My name is Christie and I was diagnosed with Keratoconus, which is actively progressing. I need treatment to stop this progression and save my eyesight before the disease completely robs me of my sight (as it has 2 of my family members). There is a Doctor in California that has a revolutionary procedure that can do that for me! The only bad thing is it's very expensive and not covered by insurance, which is why I am here reaching out for help! As much as I hate to ask for money, the simple truth is we desperately need the help! As a young family of 6 and my husband being the sole provider money is tight! A non-profit organization has stepped up to cover the cost of the treatment which just leaves us with transportation there and back and all the costs while there! It would also be a huge blessing to raise enough to have some to pay our bills as he has no vacation days and will be missing days to go with me for treatment. As a mother of 4 young children, the last thing I would want to loose is my sight! I am getting so close to my goal and with your help I know we can reach it! Even the smallest donations make a HUGE difference for us!!
Thank you so much for reading this and for helping in anyway you can! :) God Bless you and yours.
