Hello everyone,

My name is Selanna Biggs. I live in Nelspruit South Africa.

When the opportunity for qualifying came I ended up in hospital feeling deathly sick

5 years ago I was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Thyroiditis, otherwise known as Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis Disease. My entire life since my diagnosis has been robbed from me - I went from averaging 5 South African Tournaments every year to living in hospitals. I achieved Provincial Colors for Athletics and Cross Country from the age of 10 every year until my diagnosis forced me to leave all sport behind and start homeschooling just to function.

Every year I ran provincial biathlon, biathle, athletics, cross country, hockey and swimming. My goal was to obtain World Champs in Florida for Biathle and when the opportunity for qualifying came I ended up in hospital feeling deathly sick.

The gravity of my disease: Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis Disease

I hope I can just have a second of your time. I have been suffering this illness for 5 years where my body tissue attacks itself and I am unable to produce hormones which regulate my entire body function, this disease means my body tissue is destroying itself.

My case seems to be more severe than anybody we have ever came across with the same diagnosis. Over the years our family has spent over 1.3 million Rand which is equivalent to 85,420 USD.

Eventually all hope was lost, in April 2019 I ended up in Hospital again where our doctor told us that I would be dead by the end of the year if we didn’t get my medications under control. Recently we discovered a very well known integrated Dr. who’s treatments seem to be the answer but are financially out of the question and I have to go for multiple checkups and treatments.

I know a contribution is a lot to ask but anything at all will make a difference. I just want to feel normal again. I can’t even walk around the block with my current health, everything hurts, I’m in constant pain, I wake up vomiting in the middle of the night and cannot stay awake during the day for longer than a few hours before my body starts to crash. I just hope to raise some awareness for people who are suffering the silent battle. I hope that one day my story will be able to save someone else.

Please pray with us 🙏🏼
