For those that don't know me, my name is Melissa. For the last few years I have been struggling with my health. I made a lot of changes and even lost 50 pounds! Though I felt better, I still felt like something was wrong. In May of 2016 I started a 6 month program with a Functional Medicine doctor who has helped me by tailoring my diet and supplements to better fit my issues. I started to improve but my blood work showed that my body still seemed to be fighting a mystery.

That mystery started to unravel in January of this year when I began to get sick again and felt so much pain in my abdomen that I could barely move. I was scared and desperate for answers. After seeing three more doctors, getting more blood tests than I can count, and having several diagnostic tests and procedures done, I was officially diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease on March 7th, the day before my 26th birthday.

Crohn’s Disease is an autoimmune disease that attacks the GI tract. My symptoms are varied including everything from flu-like symptoms to ulcers and chronic inflammation in my intestines. Crohn’s is labeled as an incurable disease but it’s not all bad news, as many Crohn’s patients have been able to go into remission and live full lives. It just takes a lot of trial and error and loads of patience.

Trying to get a diagnosis meant I stacked up a large medical bill very quickly. Not all treatments I’m receiving are covered by medical insurance, either. During this time I've been in too much pain to work. This cut back my work hours significantly, which has added to my financial strain.

Would you consider a financial gift to cover the medical bills I’ve already incurred as well as future treatments? Crohn’s Disease is greatly affected by stress—as you can imagine, having such a large financial burden on my shoulders has caused plenty of stress. When you give today, no matter how much the amount, know that you have helped me not only financially but emotionally and physically as well!

QUICK UPDATE: 
 Thank you to all those who have given. We hit the first $1,000 of my $10,000 goal and it has already made a big impact in my life. I was able to cover some payments on my medical bills and am able to make an appointment with a Traditional Chinese Medicine doctor I've been wanting to see. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs have been proven to be very effective for managing Crohn's symptoms and now because of your help I can afford to try it out! I'm excited to see additional improvements in my health and continue to return to a full life.
