The family & friends of Sarah Bowman are raising money to pay for her medical expenses. Funds will pay for her recurring prescription costs.

My sister, Sarah Bowman, is only 24 years old and has been diagnosed with a neurological disorder. The doctors think it's Multiple Sclerosis, but diagnosis is very difficult. It started about 4 years ago when she would be walking down the street and suddenly just fall down. It's like her legs just gave out. Then it moved to her heart. She would seizure and have "attacks" where her heart would stop momentarily and then she'd wake up. Oftentimes she will stutter for a few days after each attack. CAT scans revealed lesions on her brain and for a while the attacks kept happening pretty frequently.

Finally, she got on a medicine that controls these attacks. However, this medicine is extremely expensive. Funds raised here will help with her prescription costs so she can go about her daily life without seizuring.

These attacks make Sarah very weak. She must now use a walker to get around and the doctors think she'll need a wheelchair by the end of the year. If she falls down, she is too weak to get back up again and she is unable to carry her one and a half year old son. But in spite of all this, she is always positive and optimistic about her situation!

Anything you can give will be a huge help! We'd love for her not to stress about how she'll pay for her prescription for a while. Thank you so much!!

Please NOTE: Sarah lives in Mexico. I am listed as the beneficiary because I will be sending all donations to her via Western Union.
