Please help my friend battle against stage 3 lyme disease. Her life, and mental health is on the line. Any donation will go a long way.

Friends and family Please Read, Hello- this is Ryan, Janet's and Hal's son: Kerry is a dear friend of mine. If you care about me, then please care about her. She is a young talented writer, who has a lot to offer for her friends and family. If you read this and are unable to offer anything please pass this on. Thanks Kerry Giangrande- My very close friend Kerry is extremely sick. I’m not sure where to start because I don’t know exactly how much you know about Lyme disease. I believe this is something that you should all educate yourself about, and maybe the best way to do it would be to watch this film This will help explain why I am asking for help. The failure of the system and the IDSA to recognize Lyme is criminal at best. Insurance companies do not cover the expenses and doctors are scared to treat it for fear of being sued by insurance companies for doing so. Kerry's family has been very lucky to find one of the best Lyme disease specialists in the world. You can find information on the good work of Dr. Horowitz and his team. or on youtube Kerry’s treatment program has her on a myriad of antibiotics, probiotics, western and eastern detox and pill activators. She hasn't even begun targeting the parasites that are rampaging through her body. Everyday she fights for her life, and at the same time wonders if it’s worth it. Every day I am telling her that life is worth this fight. And I am hoping for an end to her suffering. Kerry's family needs help. We’re very scared all the time, and the bills keep rolling in. No matter what happens, her treatment must go on. Any amount you can spare will be greatly appreciated and used only for the sole purpose of medical expenses. In addition to contributing whatever you can, please pass this message on to any social networking site you think may be able to provide further assistance. Thanks again, Ryan O'Connell, Giangrande Family
