Cindy 's Liver Fund
's Liver Fund
For: Cindy Bertram
Organizer: Tony Bertram
Cindy had to have 16 units of blood and 6 units of platelets due to Bleeding Esophageal Varices and Duodenum Ulcers caused by Cirrhosis of the Liver. Cindy has never been a Drinker of alcohol or user of drugs but at sometime in the past she had contracted Hepatitis C. Cindy regularly volunteers to sit with the elderly, at no charge, who have Alzheimer's disease and other diseases so this could be the soruce of coming in contact with an infected needle or some other source that infected her. The treatment for the Liver is over $1000 a day and her medical bills are be enormous. Along with the Cost of the Hospital and Doctor Bills, is the Drug EPCLUSA by Gilead biopharmaceutical, one of the Newest medicines with a 95% cure rate but at a cost of $74,000.00 for the first 60 days and could take up to six months for the Drug to work. This is her medical cost so far, $115,000 but not all the Bills have come in.
She is a mother of a Handicapped Son who has
Fragile X Syndrome and has always been there to help others, especially the
Elderly. Cindy regularly volunteers to sit with the elderly, at no charge,
who have Alzheimer's disease and helps them with their daily life needs by
using her own vehicle to take them shopping for food and supplies when the
person is able to do so. Cindy is a caring, loving Mother who is devoted to
ensuring that her Son has his needs meet before hers and is now in
need of the same kind of love that she has given so freely to others. Cindy
supported her husband and helped other military wives during those long
deployments while her husband was in the Marines by setting up events for
the wives and children at the bases they were stationed at. Cindy sacrificed
so much to help the families of those who served our nation and now she
needs that same kind of commitment from from you, the American People.
Want you please show her that in America, People still care about those who have given much and asked for so little. Contribute what ever your heart dictates so this Loving Mother and Volunteer can survive and pay for the care she now needs so she can continue to help others.
