The Story

HI, Im here to try to help my sister cataryna. she is only the young prime age of 23 years old and she has two of the most beautiful children. she is a single parent. About three and half years ago she contracted a rare strain of flesh-eating bacteria called VRSA that colonized behind both of her ear drums. Over the past three years she has seen many specialists as well as doctors both military and civilians.But to no prevail nothing is curing it. She has undergone surgery and many anti-biotics. Her body just refuses to kick it out. normally about every two weeks her ears swell and bleed as well as gain blisters all the way past the ear drum to the side of her face. but recently in the past couple of months it is now spread through-out her whole body she is always tired, weak and in pain. now doctors just give her lots of pain medications to cope and still be able to play with her children. No one knows exactly how long it will take to shut down her body. I am hoping that through this site she can either get enough funds to seek out even better help and find a cure or atleast if and when it does take her, her two children will still have a life. My twin sister and her children mean the world to me and I will be forever grateful if we can all pull together and try to save there lives....

UPDATE WRITTEN BY: Cataryna Well its been a long battle with VRSA and I wasnt expecting to be having another child, but I am now expecting. Most parents would be excited with the news but now with all of the medical testing and doctors worrying i have to say it doesnt have me in the highest of hopes.... I was hoping the Vrsa had gone away due to me not having an outbreak for a couple of months but now that i am expecting I have gotten three outbreaks in the past two weeks.... the pain is managable for now though. Wish me luck and please pray for me and my unborn son.Thank you for all of the wonderful and caring souls out there

Update-(written by cataryna) Another caring "stranger" just donated for my "condition" my gratitude and very sincere thanks go out to PEG. Peg is one of the few that have never met me or my family but knew we needed help in a bad time, my children will grow up to know the very few names of those that helped a random stranger when no one else would. PEG thank you for everything you have done-written by a caring mother that couldnt find the strenght to fight without people like you!

UPDATE(written by Cataryna)- Another supporter helped me out today... My thanks go out to JOE. and joe in response to what you wrote yes faith with help in some ways, maybe not save my life but in another wonderful and important way it gives me the will to fight to secure my two young childrens lives(anastasia and tristan) they mean the world to me and if i cant stop this "condition" from taking my life atleast with the help and support of people like you i can assure that my children will be happy and healthy and taken care of when i no longer can. The amount my supporters like you give me doesnt have to be big to make me see that there are truely caring and kind hearted people out there. So I will make sure ALL of my friends know that a random stranger like yourself does care and have a heart for someone he has never met. So again I thank you JOE from the bottom of my heart.

UPDATE-(written by cataryna)- I just wanted to thank a new supporter personally mr. elmer. I am not only thanking you for your financial support but your VERY touching and kind hearted words to me was very much needed. For me to know that there are people like you out there make my heart ache because i didnt think there were still caring people among us! And to help you out from what you wrote yes your right this "condition" isnt pleasent to go through at all, i am in constant pain and my jaw gets locked shut at times. But its people like you that make me want to fight it. GOD BLESS you for your support and kind words again, I just hope that one day i will be able to do for someone else what you did for me. Thank you elmer!

Update#2 (Update written by cataryna)

Hey everyone! I just wanted to thank everyone that has looked at my page, and even spread the word about me. It is very nice to see people out there that care. So today the storm is about to hit, and instead of  spying out the windows to see the damage that will happen i have to lay around in bed, unfortuantly i have yet another blister break out but on my belly!!! No fun at all just wearing jeans irritates and hurts me, but i am not as weak as i was this past week. So of course my hopes are not up but my spirit is! I know for the sake of my children i will fight through this. Well off to try to get the pain to ease a bit and take a short nap! thanks to everyone again though
