The family and friends of Dawna are hoping to raise the money to help with medical bills and maybe a trip to Va.

Three years ago Dawna was diagnosed with Gillian Barre' Syndrome. Usually caused by a virus, Doctors think it was from a flu shot she received at work. She has been a nurse since 1985 and it was just one of those things that might happen to any one. She is disabled now due the neurological effects from the Syndrome. Most of the time people recover without any problems, But she did not. She has short term memory lose, muscle weakness and muscle spasms. Currently the medications seems to be controlling the syndrome. But over the last three years she has been in and out of the Hospital and has so many Bills, from past hospitalizations , everyday is a blessing for her. She continues to have good and bad days. Mornings are the best time for her, by late afternoon she has to rest. She has the same symdomes as MS But they have never found and lesions on her Brain or spine. But they can come and go unnoticed. She is a lovely and very caring lady, will do anything for anyone. She has 3 children and 3 grandchildren. Her son and his son have moved to Va and she has not been able to hold him for 4 months now. She would like to visit for thanksgiving but she is unable to drive, so would have to fly there. Which can cost a good bit. But with god and everyone help maybe sh will be able to visit.
