We are asking friends and family to donate any little that you can to my sister Betty DeLong-Mettetal to help with her medical expenses.

Over the last few weeks Betty has learned that she has liver damage due to a prescription drug she was given to treat anxiety and depression. Her husband took her to the hospital after she was not speaking clearly or making any sense. After staying in the hospital and running tests they found that her liver was severely damaged and that it is now affecting her brain.

For the last few weeks she has been in and out of the doctors offices for many tests. She has also been taken off of the prescription drugs that have caused her liver damage.

So far Betty is in good spirits but she has no medical insurance as her husband lost his job as many other Americans. She knows what is going on around her but she cannot function in society without the help of others. Even a simple phone call is hard for her because her brain can't function clearly to speak the right words.

Her liver damage is so severe at this point that it is life threatening. As you can imagine, this unexpected family crisis will take quite a toll on everyone, emotionally and financially. If you know Betty or were ever around her you know Betty loves her friends and family immensely and would love to hear from you. Please send any cards or well wishes to their home address which can be obtained from Cheryl Younger on Facebook. Please message me and tell me how you know Betty.
