My name is Brizzel Nelson, but many of you may know me as Tamika British. I am a 53-year-old resident of Kingston, Jamaica. Today, I am reaching out to share my story and seek your support for a cause that is very close to my heart.
In my early 30s, I was diagnosed with a chronic autoimmune disorder called vitiligo. This condition has had a significant impact on my life, causing patches of my skin to lose pigment or color. Over the years, these discolored areas have grown larger, affecting my skin all over my body, including my hair and the inside of my mouth. In addition to coping with vitiligo, I am also diabetic, which adds another layer of complexity to my health.
As many of you may know, living with vitiligo can be challenging both physically and emotionally. However, I am determined to face this condition with strength and resilience. While there is no known cure for vitiligo, there are treatments available that have shown promise in stopping its progression and helping to restore a more even skin tone.
Unfortunately, accessing these treatments comes with a financial burden. The cost of the necessary treatment amounts to 100,000 JMD, which is beyond my current means. This is where your support and generosity can make a profound difference in my life.
I am humbly asking for your help in raising the funds needed to purchase the vitiligo treatment. Your contribution, no matter the size, will bring me one step closer to managing this condition effectively and improving my quality of life. Your kindness and compassion will not go unnoticed, and I am forever grateful for any assistance you can provide.
Please share this fundraiser with your friends, family, and networks to help spread the word. Together, we can make a significant impact and make a positive difference in the life of someone facing the challenges of vitiligo.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story, and thank you in advance for your generous contributions. Your support means the world to me, and I am hopeful that with your help, I can continue to face this condition with courage and determination.
With heartfelt gratitude,
Brizzel Nelson (Tamika British)
