Teddy and her family

Donated medicines

Teddy and her children are going through a very difficult time right now, as Teddy is dying.  She has been a patient for a long time at Mulago Hospital and is, in fact, the person who first received medicine there along with her then infant children.  Her youngest is now in 7th grade and is healthy and well, thanks to medicine she receives, along with her brother.

But, Teddy is not doing well at all and she needs very specific and expensive medicine.  We have been looking everywhere for these medications and find that they are both super expensive and hard to get.  It seems that they are made for rich folks or for those with amazing insurance coverage, both of which are not part of Teddy's life.  We will not give up as we try to locate and purchase these medicines for her, but we need your help.

On October 17th, starting at 12:01as EST, donations will be matched at 30% (up to $1000 per donor and until $50k in matching donations are used up).  Please consider making a donation as close to 12:01am on the 17th so that we can help more people like Teddy and so that Teddy can live to continue loving and caring for her children.

Thank you for caring!
