Hi, my daughter has a good friend who is 18 years old, just graduated from high school and was going to go to the community college this fall. In early June, she got real sick, went unconscious, had seizures, they put her in the hospital, transfered her to Rush (Chicago). She been on a ventilator. Now has bed sore. Her name is Brandy, if you are a prayer, please lift her and her family up. They couldn't find what was causing this. Now they think it may be a rare form of West Nile Virus that usually kills 50 to 75% of people who get it, can cause mental retardation, paralization, etc. The insurance co. they have maxes at one million and they are almost there, so they won't be insured. The mom has one week left to get back to work or she will lose her job. My heart breaks for them, realy, I want to just cry. Any ideas.....Applebees, where she and my daughter work, had a car wash fundraiser and raised 1300. They have another little fund raiser going. Do you have any simple but great fund raiser ideas, ideas of how my family can help or ideas of help for no insurance after they reach their max.......I thought of Hospice, but I don't think that applies here. Let me know any thoughts, let's pray for a miracle. Thanks guys, Bellski
