The family and friends of Jenna Aurelio Kamalii are uniting to raise money to help her battle with MS. Please show your support!!

As many of you know, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis about 3 years ago. It is rapidly progressing and has affected every area of my life imaginable. This horrible disease has taken me on quite the wild ride from some difficulty walking in the beginning to now needing full-time assistance walking and is now affecting the ability to use my hands and difficulty breathing and swallowing. I have gone from a very active lifestyle to extreme difficulties with everyday tasks such as cooking, cleaning, getting in and out of bed, cars, chairs, the shower, drive a car and so on. In addition, I am not able to work and have been on medical leave for over a year. Everything I have ever known in my life has been altered and affected by this illness. I have exhausted many of the treatment options available, as my disease is a very aggressive one, and my options are quite limited at this point. None of the conventional treatments are stopping the progression or even slowing it down. My family and I have decided to explore alternative treatments and in our extensive research have found an option known as a stem cell transplant to be highly successful in stopping progression of the disease and even reversing damage the disease has caused. The hope that this brings me and my family cannot be described. We have decided to go forward however, we have a long road ahead of us. The cost of this treatment is not covered by insurance and we will need to come up with $30,000 (out of pocket) in addition to travel expenses, as the treatment will be administered out of the country, in order to proceed with the treatment that could potentially give me my life back. I can't do this alone. Please stand beside me and help me reach my goal to pay for this treatment and get well again. Thank you!!
