Many of you who follow our blog may remember a young lady named Yebsira.
You can read her full story here: https://blessingthechildren.wordpress.com/2012/05/22/her-god-always-shows-up/
Yebsira is a bright, caring young lady who is dedicated to her education and her family. Four years ago, she started having seizures and began a long medical journey that would lead her from having numerous seizures a day to where she is now – seizure free for a year!
In March of 2012, Yebsira’s mother took her to a specialist in Addis Ababa who put Yebsira on a new medicine that, although more expensive, was able to successfully control her seizures. Since then, Yebsira says that although she sometimes feels the “warning signs” of a seizure, that she has not had one. With her seizures under control, Yebsira has a new leash on life, not living of fear of when the next seizure will strike and how weak it will leave her. She is able to live worry-free and enjoy being a child!
Yebsira is scheduled for routine check ups with the specialist in Addis every six months and we are believing that she will continue to remain seizure free.
In May of 2012, Blessing the Children shared Yebsira’s story and received a donation providing a years worth of medicine for Yebsira but as March is drawing to a close, the funds donated to provide for Yebsira’s medicine and medical bills are almost gone.
For $100/mo, we are able to provide Yebsira with her medicine, as well as cover all of her medical visits and required testing with the specialist in Addis.
Would you consider making a donation to keep Yebsira seizure free?!
