My name is Mary, and my auntie has MS. I am currently raising money for her to fly to Poland, India, France, anywhere where she can have the surgery to hopefully correct it.
It has gotten to the point where she can't swallow her food most times - she has lost about 80 pounds in the past 10 months, it's been getting worse and worse. She is also sufferring immensly from the stress her children (teenagers) are causing for her.
I've been reading up on a surgery that can potentially cure MS, but it hasn't been legalized yet in the country I live in.. It seems to me that my country/the USA is more worried about the big drug companies losing big money if they legalize it, and as you can tell my auntie is in urgent need to have this operation..
I would like to know, where is someplace she can get this surgery performed? How much does it (generally) cost? Is there anybody who has a phone number or information to send to me about where to go? Is there anybody who has had this operation, and if so, what are your experiences?
I'm only 17, so I don't know much about this.. But I do know that if somebody doesn't do something to help her, she is going to die.
If anybody has information on where she can go/who to contact, I would appreciate it so much..
