After ten years of fighting Dermatomyositis ,Angel has become steroid resistant and now requires treatments with Imunoglobulin prepared from the blood of hundreds of donors. She fights the progression like no one else could.

 Angel dobbs was diagnosed with dermatomyositis in 2000. This rare muscle disease affects 1 in 3 million . A change in angels immune system causes inflamation of the arteries feeding her muscles. At 38 and 10 years into the disease angel has had 3 major flairs ,the last one caused her to lose 20 pounds of muscle, and all her Hair.

 On the bebound now her hair is now 4 inches long .She exercises every day trying to rebuild the muscles lost.No person on this earth try's as hard as her.To date she has had 3 infusions of rituxan and they help some with muscle strength .These treatments cost $ 48000 for 2010.

In 4 monthes angel will start Introvenous Imunoglobulin , IVIG which costs much more. This is the reason I came here . I will not be able to keep up with the medical costs even working 56 hours a week ,and carrying insurancs along with her Disability and medicare.

 I ask you to Help Angel. I cannot do it all myself. Please
