BethAne, 47, was diagnosed in 2005 with Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS) and systemic lupus with antibody syndrome. Within a year of being diagnosed, BethAnneâ€™s health had deteriorated to the point that she had to quit work, volunteering and playing sports. In December 2013, doctors informed BethAnne that they ran out of medications to effectively treat her blood clotting, and that a stem cell transplant was the last resort. Since the procedure is considered experimental for autoimmune disorders, most insurance carriers- including Beth Anneâ€™s- do not cover it. BethAnne is looking to raise a minimum of $300,000 for this potentially life changing procedure and subsequent medical care.
