Family and friends of Carrie Driscoll are uniting to help offset her medical expenses please help!

On May 10, 2010 Carrie was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.
She was hospitalized for four days when she lost her sight and underwent several major tests. After being released from the hospital she had to begin Steroid treatment to help her system fight off a relapse that was causing her to lose the ability to walk.
She also now has to give herself daily injections in the hopes that it will stop the disease from progressing. There is no guarentee of this and in the mean time she continues to fight daily symptoms such as dizziness, loss of balance and coordination, memory loss and so many others.
Her and her husband just welcomed a beautiful baby boy into the world in August and now she is fighting a relapse that will force her to undergo steroid treatment again. She is on maternity leave and has no income until she returns to work, but in the middle of a relapse, work can be nearly impossible.
Carrie also must find the means to cover doctor visits, MRI's every 6 months, and the other expenses that come with this debilitating disease. The bills are continuing to build and they are no longer able to keep up. These expenses are a life long problem now and as her family we are trying to help give at least a little relief by trying to help pay off some of the medical bills.
The diagnosis came right after her and her husband were married and right as she was preparing to graduate from college. It has affected every aspect of their lives and we want them to see something good and beautiful in the midst of such a hard time.
Thank you so much for taking a moment to read our story, and if you feel moved to give your donation will not go unappreciated!
