Why is Kari the Center of Your Universe?

Kari is my daughter whose independent lifestyle has been rocked by diagnosis of CRPS, Chiari Malformation I, Triageminal Neuralgia, EDS. She was just beginning her career as a Social Worker helping young adults with Autism live independently, when her chronic pain began. She had to move in with me (and who wants to live with their mother??) This beautiful, caring, giving girl is in pain 24/7 and needs a weekend of care. I nominate Kari because she is a true warrior, she battles everyday to stay strong and not show how much she is hurting. We continue to search for some relief as doctors one by one say "there's nothing more I can do" and if just one weekend will help her.... I will take it. Please consider my daughter for this weekend, if just to give her some rest and peace for a little time.
Thank you,
A grateful Mom

A wonderful young lady whose passion is to help children with autism. She could really use a little help of her own!

Kari is an amazingly strong and determined young woman. Iโ€™ve known her for 11 years and Iโ€™ve never once watched her retreat, become down or quit. She is truly worthy of the respect and love from everyone who crosses her path. Kari never asks for sympathy, powering through life every day. She is very deserving of this weekend and many more restful weekends in her future.
