The Story

Click here to follow Hope for Kaisha on Facebook

Several years ago Kaisha was diagnosed with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). This is a very rare progressive disease of the Autonomic Nervous System, and more specifically the Sympathetic Nervous System. The pain associated with CRPS is rated as one of the highest levels of pain possible, higher than both amputation and child birth without medication. There is no current medical cure for this disease. Typically it is treated with pain management. As in Kaisha’s case this is most often unsuccessful. Kaisha has gone through years of doctor visits, medical tests, pain management, medications, various therapies, etc with no relief.  Recently Kaisha’s family was introduced to the Neurological Relief Center in Arkansas. At this center Dr Katinka and her staff are treating patients who have CRPS with incredible success. She is the only doctor in the United States offering this particular treatment. While remission is not a guarantee, people are receiving relief from CRPS and other similar conditions and in many cases are returning to the lives they lead before their diagnosis.  The treatment is not covered by Kaisha’s health insurance and will require her to travel to Arkansas for 3 months to receive treatments 3-6 times a day for 10-12 weeks. We are working to raise $29,000 in order to allow this chance for her to return to a healthy, functional life.

Do take a look at our facebook page (Hope for Kaisha) for all the latest updates on Kaisha's progress.    It's real, and we are greatly encouraged.  We are also greatly encouraged by all of you who have sacrificed and given to help Kaisha in Fayetteville.   Thank you. The treatment has taken longer than anticipated, but it is producing results.  

We have had to increase the amount we are raising because Kaisha is not yet finished. If you are led or desire to help any further, please do.  And please continue to support Kaisha and her family in prayer as this journey continues.  

Take a look at the photos and updates here.  There's a great post Kaisha put up for her mom on Mother's day.  It's quite touching.  Take a look:  Hope for Kaisha on Facebook
