    Story

    The above photo of Stacy, in hospital, yet again, this week. In August she was diagnosed with Pulminary Veno-Occlusive Disease (PVOD) and the doctors say she may live another 2 years at most - the prognosis is really bad. Stacy just wants to go on holiday with us one more time. We do not have the money for this as we are Pensioners reliant on the UK State Pension and we so want to make this happen for her as she really deserves to have her last wish granted.

    Stacy is our younger daughter and is just 42. She hasn't had much of a life due to having had Crohns, and, through the over-use of steroids by doctors, other debilitating illnesses. However PVOD is rare and is the worst type of Pulminary Hypertension where only 1 person in 10,000,000 get PVOD. No reason just pure bad luck the doctors said! The doctors also said that in the realm of rare diseases this is really rare. We just want her to have the one thing she wants that we can't give her.

    They won't see any difference because she is going to die from heart failure and there is nothing the doctors can do. She has too many other things wrong with her for them to use the only thing that could have helped her - a heart & lung transplant. Some of her other illnesses are Avascular Necrosis (dead hips - 2 replacements so far) Fibromyalgia, Osteoporosis - just too many to name. She so deserves this and I wish we could afford it without resulting to this, but we just can't.

    On a holiday for Stacy, but, she obviously can't go alone as her heart and lungs are so bad. Flying is out of the question because of the air pressure so it will either be a holiday in this country or, if enough is raised, a cruise from Southampton, which is what she really wants. But raising enough money for either would be amazing and let her have the only thing she is asking for.

    I am Stacy's mother and those of you that know me know I have had MS for a very long time and never ask for anything nor do I complain. But this is different. It's for a very lovely daughter who so doesn't deserve this latest disease which is horrific, to say the least.
