We are helping raise money for a very special woman. She is a mother, wife, sister, aunt, and a grandmother. Karlene is a kind hearted, nurturing loving person. On April 24th 2017 she received a injection for a knee injury that was contaminated and became life-threatening. Two other patients who receive the same injection from that doctor have since passed away. The injection was a steroid and it caused Myco Bacterium Abscessus.
This is a very serious bacteria that feeds off of your muscle and tissue. Karlene has had five surgeries and been hospitalized seven times with her last hospital stay being over three weeks. She has had 2 blood transfusions. They have now spent their entire life savings and retirement trying to save her life. She is undergoing treatment that is still in the trial stages. This trial medication is showing improvement in her health. However it is very expensive.
We are asking that even if you donate just $1 please donate something. Karlene needs help covering her expensive treatments. Without these treatments Karlene could lose her battle. This is a family who has been through over a year of very serious health issues and they cannot afford the medical treatment that will save her life.
