No sun, but no snow,,
I fear that some people are under a mistaken impression of these blogs. I have been blogging about U of M helping my daughter. She is not applying for a scholarship, she is seeking medical help. It has been fully described in previous blogs, but basically she cannot work due to her severe condition, so cannot get insurance with no job or $$, so no medical help. I took her to the University of Michigan, but without lots of cash or insurance, they cannot treat her. I was under the impression that it being a world renowned teaching hospital, there would be some type of trade-off like students/interns learning from her and she get a f=break of some kind for being a teaching tool. NO go..
Applications I am filing out and she is filling out are for help with the costs of her treatment.. It may take months to find out and her skin will be back to square one by then,, it is only two hours drive there, BUT it is not an easy set of roads to drive. THe most congested and busiest and most dangerous in the state. It did not help that we were racing a big rain/sleet/snow storm when we went the first time.
Without help from U of M coordinators, there is no treatment option left for her.
I ask for deep prayers for my DD to get the help she wil need for the rest of her life.. there is no cure and very few treatment options that allow a person to function normally. She is always very upbeat with people on Sparks, but her own situation is dismal.. I wish I could take on the pain of this disease for her...
