Restoring Talent Buried by Pain

 

Imagine going from being a super-active person to becoming incapable of steady work…and then going downhill from there. Due to a rare and deadly infection, this is precisely what happened to Sarah Klein, a mother of, B”H, four wonderful children, and someone blessed with many talents – which have been effectively buried by years of progressive pain, severe migraines, joint degeneration, and PTSD. A myriad of doctors have literally given up on Sarah’s case, and only advised that she take the very opioids that she bravely weaned off of due to their decreasing efficacy and their well-known side effects. Sarah’s family, which has burned through its financial resources in coping with their difficult situation, is now turning to The Chesed Fund for help in financing a unique, intensive treatment protocol that may be Sarah’s best hope for escaping the dungeon of pain and opening the door to returning to her talents.

Back in 2007, Sarah was an orchestral musician, playing French horn full time for the Israel Sinfonietta. She was also a talented birth coach and doula, having prepared dozens of young couples for the arrival of their upcoming children, and helped create amazing birth experiences for dozens of women. But that year, a single minor surgery gone tragically wrong resulted in the deadly infection called necrotizing fasciitis, aka flesh-eating bacteria.

The results were devastating – physically, emotionally, and ultimately, professionally as well. Sarah was forced to give up her wonderful careers.

Sarah wants to fight to regain her health. She has even developed her talent as a writer, and maintains a popular blog. Just as impressively, she has also taken on the responsibility of being on the board of the newly founded Necrotizing Fasciitis Foundation, and is active on the site’s forum, helping other fellow NF victims to cope with the devastation caused by this deadly and damaging infection.

However, a recent downturn starting half a year ago involving extreme, chronic stomach pain and frequent migraines have rendered even her latest endeavors increasingly difficult if not impossible. She simply cannot be on her feet for any amount of time, nor can she concentrate enough to invest herself in her writing.

This is why Sarah has elected to undergo the unique, intensive treatment protocol mentioned at the top of this letter. The immediate goal of this fundraising campaign is to cover the $5,000 needed to pay for the treatment in which she will undergo several extended therapeutic treatments per day, take a regimen of herbal medicines that is adjusted daily, and eat according to a strict regimen designed to help her heal. Moreover, there will be round-the-clock supervision to ensure the maximum effect and safety of the treatment.

This intensive two-week course of treatment will hopefully bring about a positive sea change in Sarah’s condition, and enable future targeted treatments to be all the more effective in addressing her debilitating pains, and allow her to once again help and inspire others with her G-d-given talents.
