The Story

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.

In less than six hours Kaisha and her parents will be heading to Fayetteville to the Neurologic Relief Center.  It's a very emotional time for all of us.  I have been pleading, asking the Lord to heal Kaisha, and praying that He will be glorified in the outcome as well as the process.

Again - thank you to all who have given.  It means so much and has touched Kaisha's heart.  

We wanted you to know that a facebook page has been created.  We'll be posting updates there as Kaisha goes on this journey.  Please follow if you can...

Also... feel free to comment - Kaisha will be reading every post.  If you're inclined to send a physical note of encouragement, message us via this facebook page, and will get you the info.

Hugs and thanks to all of you who mean so much to us!

In just five short days Kaisha and her family will head to Fayetteville, Arkansas, for what we pray will be a life-changing event to relieve the pain she suffers.  Thank you to all who have given.  We are so blessed, and so appreciative.

As of today, we are just $4740 away from our original goal!  That's amazing.
