90 Day Fiance star Ashley Martson is currently in the Intensive Care Unit after she was found unresponsive in her home and was transported to a local hospital via ambulance. Ashley has since regained consciousness, and she updated her Instagram followers on her condition.
“I was found unresponsive this morning at my home,” Ashley captioned a photo (above) of herself in a hospital bed. “The Ambulance took me to the hospital where it was found that I am in acute kidney failure due to lupus.”
Ashley reveals that she will begin kidney dialysis shortly as she continues to remain positive. “I will not let this beat me,” she asserts. “I know I’m strong enough to battle through this, not just for myself but for my kids.”
The 32-year-old reality star says that she will be transferred to another hospital with better dialysis facilities later this evening. “Please pray for myself and my family as I know it’s going to be a very tough road ahead for all of us. Thank you for your continuous support and prayers.”
Ashley was preemptive in defending her choice to update fans with a picture. “I’m sorry if this photo offends anyone, but I will not hide that I’m sick. If I can help one person with lupus then posting this is worth it.” She was also preemptive in attempting to avert any negative reactions. “Please keep negative comments off this post,” she requests. “I’m already scared and I don’t need to be kicked while I’m already down.”
We certainly wish Ashley all the best and hope she is back on her feet again soon!
UPDATE – Ashley has since launched a GoFundMe campaign in hopes of raising money to cover her mounting medical bills.
A friend with access to Ashley’s Instagram account posted a link to the campaign and explained in a photo:
And here is the description for the campaign, which has already raised $270 of the $10,00 goal shortly after being created:
Please help Ashley fight lupus
As many of you know Ashley has been battling lupus. She has posted more recently her hospital stays but this has been going on for years.
Yesterday, Ashley was found unresponsive at her home. She was taken by ambulance to the hospital where it was determined that she is in kidney failure. She will begin dialysis and be placed on the donor list. This is a hard battle that Ashley will have to fight but I know she can pull through.
With that being said, she will be out of work for months without any financial support. She has two children that she is responsible for as well as the typical bills for her home and car. Medical bills are piling up and she is in need of help. I know this is very hard for Ashley to ask for help but at this point she has run out of options.
Please find it in your heart to donate to Ashley and her children so she can focus on getting well and not stress over finances. If you are unable to donate please pray for Ashley and her family. Thank you to everyone for their support during this hard time. I’m sure Ashley would love any cards or letters to help her pass the time in the hospital and at home.
