From: Corynne Burrows, sister of Sarah Briana Burrows
“I am writing you this letter in hopes that it reaches you in time to save my sister’s life. As I type, I am sitting in an ICU hospital room, watching my younger sister fight a losing battle.”
Her name is Sarah Briana Burrows, and she was born 21 months after me. Since the day she arrived on this planet, she has been my everything. This wildly-curly haired, middle child was born on 5/11/1990; she is now 22 years old. She was born at 5 lbs. 11 oz., six weeks premature; she came into this world with health problems. At age 9, Briana was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes, and the ever-developing health battle got much worse. Briana always had a hard time managing her diabetes, and by the age of 15 had been in DKA (diabetic ketoacidosis) over twenty times. Statistics for diabetics in DKA result in 1 death out of every 20 instances. She has been on borrowed time for quite a while.
She ended up in the ICU again on Thanksgiving of this year. She came in with a total of 6 different blood infections, blood clots, kidney failure, and more. She is either allergic or immune to about 90% of the antibiotics the doctor’s can put her on, so the options were limited. She was lucky enough to survive the infections, the one blood infection has an extremely high mortality rate, and she was released from the hospital on Dec. 20. She was admitted again on Dec. 23, released again on Dec. 25, and then I brought her in once again last night, Dec. 29.
I am frightened that this will be the last miracle. If nothing changes, she knows how this will end. She is frightened, but feels helpless. In her eyes, either way this goes, she is incredibly sick, and probably will die, so she is choosing to not be miserable as possible. I cannot possibly believe that she was brought into this world only to be sick her entire life.
There has to be something more for her.
She is the most stubborn, hard-headed, persistent, and convincing person I have ever met- if anyone can beat this, it’s her. She just needs some restored faith.
I have exhausted all of my resources, and this is my only glimmer of hope that she
will survive. Time is running out and I need your help. Please.
On hands and knees begging,
One desperate older sister”
