Get Caro HomeCause progress
My dear friends, my name is Caroline Mumbua, a 24 year old. I am currently in India as I was diagnosed with a disease called Lupus. Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease where the body's immune system becomes hyperactive and attacks the healthy tissue. This results in symptoms such as inflammation, swelling, and damage to joints, skin, kidneys, blood, the heart, and lungs.
Before being referred to India for treatment, my family had spent close to 2million shillings in a bid to save my life. Now in India Lupus is getting suppressed but Doctors are no longer willing to treat me because I currently owe the hospital 3million shillings.
My father passed away in June last year (2015) and my mother is with me in India while my only close relatives are working night and day to get money and pay for my medicine, regular dialysis (done weekly)and surgeries.It breaks my heart to see how they have struggled to save my life for the past 9 months.
I have fought to live because I am a strong lady; my family has fought with me and continue to do so because they believe in me, and I kindly request you to fight with me to save my life and create believe in a generation that everything is possible.
No amount is too small.
