Friends and Family of Amber are uniting to raise money to help pay off high cost medical bills that are not covered by insurance.

Friends and family of Amber are joining together to try and raise money to help pay off medical bills. Amber is 23 years old, and one day developed a rare blood disease called ITP. One day Amber was at home and just started bleeding from every part of her body. After rushing to the ER, she found out that her platelet count was extremely low and was being admitted. At one point her platelet count was at a 1 (out of 180-400), and it wasnt looking good.

ITP is a strange disease because there is no known cause for it. And in many cases those who develop it respond immediately respond to treatment. In Amber's case however, it is a bit different. The treatments were not as affective, and now with the constant in and out for treatment and bloodwork her medical bills have continued to rise.

Currently the bills have reached hundred of thousands, and will continue to rise. She is a full time student, as well as a full time worker who is doing what she can to support herself. With no insurance and no help, friends, family and coworkers are trying their best to support her and help out the best they can.
