Save Jessica's Legs...and Life..

My friend Jessica's medical condition continues to get worse, especially given the fact she does not have health insurance and has been forced to try everything from over the counter methods to homeopathic solutions for her condition. She is only 23 years old and it is so hard to see someone with that much life ahead of them in a state of desperate need..

From the second I met her, I knew she was a sweet and beautiful soul. I can't call her my best friend, but I did feel it was something I needed to do, because I think she deserves to get the best medical care possible. Her medical bills have already totaled in the tens of thousands of dollars and continue to grow.

She has a condition originally diagnosed as necrotizing fasciitis and later changed to pyoderma gangrenosum. Basically she has flesh eating ulcers all over her legs and without the proper medical treatment, she could lose her legs...or worse, her life. She is such a bright spirit and it really makes me sad to see someone write about how they have fallen into a dark place that they can't get out of without some help. Her mother and she can barely afford to pay rent, groceries, and she's not even in a position where she can work because of the extreme amount of pain she is in.

She is the type of person that would do whatever she could do pay you back or do something to return the favor....she deserves to LIVE and have the best medical care available to her so that she can experience life in all of its beauty.

Even if you can only donate a few bucks, every dollar you know, medical care is not free in the US and doctors don't generally like to do pro bono work unless they are benefiting directly in some way. Her medications are expensive and without them, her condition can only get worse. She constantly is being referred and shuffled to different doctors, and everything costs a pretty penny.
I feel this is my duty to help a beautiful soul....even if you are a total stranger, please put yourself in her shoes. How would you feel if you were so helpless and the only people you had to rely on were total strangers.

That is how she feels, so I hope you can see the desperate need here and see it in your hearts to help..

Thank you, and God Bless...
