The Sophia Garcia Lupus treatment fund. Funds will be used for Sophia's medical costs and related expenses not covered by insurance.

Sophia, is a 24 year old talented jeweler, a dear friend to many, and a wonderful wife and mother of three exceptional children; Dominic(6), Saylor Rose(2), and Gwenivere(5months). Sophia is a passionate lover of music, dancing, books, homeopathic nutrition and the arts, she is tea enthusiast, an intellectual, a nurturer to those poor in spirit, a phenomenal cook, and overall wonder person and promising entrepreneur.

Sophia was recently diagnosed with Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). SLE is a long-term autoimmune disorder that may affect the skin, joints, kidneys, brain, and other organs. As you may already know there is no cure for lupus, however there are many affective treatments and coping methods available to victims of this disorder. How well a person does depends on the severity of the disease. The outcome for people with SLE has improved in recent years.
Severe or life-threatening symptoms (such as hemolytic anemia, extensive heart or lung involvement, kidney disease, or central nervous system involvement) often require more aggressive treatment by doctor specialists.

At this point is it not believed that her condition is life threatening, however it has, without a doubt, compromised her quality if life. Those who know Sophia will agree there are few people as deserving of a quality life as she. We would also agree to be there for her long before her life is in danger.
Sophia has commendably chosen to reject western medical treatments, which targets merely the symptoms of lupus and thus, offer only temporary relief, along with an inevitable medication dependency. She has opted to seek alternative methods of treatment which target the illness directly, and fight to permanently remove it's crippling effects.
Sophia continues to work out side of the home, manage her jewelry business, and mother her children, all while suffering the effects of lupus. She is currently without transportation, living more than twenty miles from her care providers and unable to cover the cost of proper treatment not covered by her insurance.

The current goal is $5000, which will go to acquiring adequate transportation, paying for treatment, necessary medications, supplements, any child care needed in relation to her treatment, and other related needs.
Let's show her our support!
