"Jasmin say, 'Mom, God chose me because I'm strong.' She say, 'Thank you God from picking me because I'm strong,'" said her mother.

Little by little the dermatologist is seeing improvement in Jasmin's skin. She is donating treatments and continues to show the insurance company why treatments are medically necessary.
Jasmin's medical costs and medications are running around $700 a month. You can donate to her health-care fund called "Team Jasmin SJS" at any Regions Bank.
