The family and friends of LeAnn Weaver are uniting to help raise money for her medical bills in her battle with polymyositis

My name is Sharron I am the mother of two children well I call them children. My son is 21 and my daughter is 25 and this fundraiser is all about my Lee. Earlier this year she began struggling getting in and out of our car and it gradually got to the point where on the way to the doctors office she collapsed and could not get off the ground. I called an ambulance. My son and I spent 8 hours in the emergency room where they ran tests and her bloodwork came back off. It was too technical of a problem for small town doctors so she was flown to KU medical center where we spent 4 weeks I was by her side for every test and procedure and right outside the doors for the ones I could'nt be. The 4th day I was there I was fired from my job. The doctors finally diagnosed her with something called Polymyositis a rare auto-immune disease that causes her body to attack it's own muscle tissues.
They told us that she needs two medicines one is steroids which she is already on the other is something called methotrexate however she cannot have Methotrexate until she has several bad teeth removed as they are classified as an infection risk by her doctors.
She also has suffered a stroke and has been diagnosed with Lupus. While in Rehab once she was released from the hospital our car broke down so we have no way of getting to doctors appointments or dental visits every little bit helps. Thank you
