People like Kiki, an 11 year old girl whose body has been fighting itself for over a year. She was diagnosed with Lupus, a disease that affects the immune system causing antibodies to fight healthy, normal cells, not just infections. When the disease was finally diagnosed, Kiki was extremely sick– her kidneys were shutting down, she had chronic back pain and her lungs were unable to deliver enough oxygen to her body. She was hospitalized for a month and missed many months of school.
After she was discharged, services were coordinated with our agency and Sue Brinigar became her nurse, to help the family organize her 16 medications, monitor her vitals and manage her blood pressure.
“Thankfully she is in remission and is feeling good… we love her so much we all want her to be healthy… what else is there?” comments Eva, Kiki’s grandmother.
Kiki is now back at school and is down to just 10 medications a day.
Sue visits her weekly and adds, “Kiki’s health is stable and we will all be working together to make sure she stays a happy, healthy child.”
Please join our team of supporters so we can be there for the hundreds of other Kiki’s out there suffering and thousands of older adults who just need the right care in place to help them achieve a better quality of life.
