Karing4Kerri cause and Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy

A friend in NJ just told me about a neighbor of hers, whose granddaughter, Kerri is about 20 years old now and developed a terrible disease while in High School a few years ago. When you hear about things like this, you suddenly are reminded of how good your life is, and how important is our own and our children's health.

Kerri Jarvis has been struggling with a neurological disorder called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. There is a Treatment in Germany that has a good chance of putting her in remission if it works. It will cost about $80,000 for the trip this summer. They have raised around $40,000 so far. If she is not able to get the treatment or go into remission, the Doctors give her only a couple of years to live. Even if you can donate $5, it would be a big help to them. There is a way to give with a credit card and paypal.
