Keeping Cristy: One of Our Own

My close friend, Cristy Kessler, is in desperate need of a bone marrow/stem cell transplant that she cannot get in this country because her health insurance has not approved such treatment for autoimmune disorders. This, in spite of the fact that all of her doctors agree it is the only way to arrest, or at least slow, the progress of three disorders (scleroderma, vasculitis, and ankylosing spondylitis) each of which would be fatal alone. We are trying to raise the money to send her to Anadolu Hospital in Turkey for this life-saving procedure.

She’s an amazing young woman who loves life. We want to keep her with us.

About Sharon

**Writing, both personal and professional, has always been an important aspect of my life. **Personally, whether I write from experience or invent fictional characters, I learn so much about myself. Writing has always helped me understand and deal with important events and issues in my life. The blog, "Boxelders and Blackberries" serves this purpose. **My "gravatar" is a boxelder tree, which I hope provides a way to bring together my personal and professional writing. The boxelder tree branches into multiple trunks, each representing a different direction my life and career has taken.
