The Story

Let's face it, Shay has had a Mack Truck of bad Mojo roll all over her life and she hasn't been the same since. You can't sugar coat what she has gone through and continues to go through. It's painful to see someone whose life was once vibrant and who dedicated her time to making this world a little less cruel, be knocked down so brutally. Through it all, Shay has asked for very little besides our prayers, but the time has come (it's overdue in fact) that she and her family need your financial support to make Shay's life better. Your generous support will help her and her family cover the costs of her basic care needs, her medical cost, as well as help purchase therapeutic equipment and services currently out of her reach and so so much more. It's been two years of non stop fighting, struggle and working hard to keep going. She's been through absolute hell many times over, she cheated death several times, and you know the crazy thing, many of those times were avoidable, she's lost so much physically and at times she has even lost the will to live. But you can help change that, we can't take her back in time, but we can give her hope, we can lift her spirits and we can provide comfort and joy....because folks this isn't over by any's just gonna be a long hard road to go down, and your donation will make this journey easier.

Last Hope, going to Mayo

Shay needs your help to make a very important trip to one of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN. 
It's a world reknowed intitution and Dr. Weyand at Standford was ademant that only Mayo could help us, and the neurologist at UCI agreed. Both are Mayo alumni, very lucky for us. The waiting line is several years long without a Mayo referral.

Shay has been struggling the last couple months. UCLA is not able to figure it out and frankly not very active in doing much without great proding. Much of what has helped Shay is due to our researching and constant advocating for it. 

Right now Shay is trapped in bed, unable to sit up for very long without pain and difficulty breathing. We need to make this trip! 

On May 7th we meet with the first doctor and then we go from there. Because of her weakend condition I had to move the appt. up 10 days and luckily there was a cancellation, but I am also looking at getting her in even sooner. 

Any help you can offer is appreciated and please spread the word. We still need to keep raising money for the longer term.
