When Dr. Diana Driscoll was struck with a disabling invisible illness, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome with Dysautonomia, her quest for answers and compassion for other sufferers began. As both a patient and a doctor (therapeutic optometrist), Dr. Diana has been working tirelessly researching a cure for those inflicted with these invisible illnesses such as CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or “M.E.”), Chronic Lyme Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome with Dysautonomia and Endometriosis. Through collaboration, research and personal experimentation, she has found some answers to these debilitating diseases that have left many puzzled and without hope for so long.
In her desire to reach out to those who are suffering worldwide, Dr. Diana began the website www.Prettyill.com. Here, you can view much of her research and gain support from a community of fellow patients. While currently on professional disability, she is dedicating all of her available time and resources to the goal of providing hope to patients in discovering a cure.
Current clinical testing is being completely funded by Drs. Diana and Richard Driscoll. This is not how science has traditionally worked, but this reflects their level of commitment to help individuals suffering from these chronic illnesses. Traditionally, applying for research grants and paying for large administrative costs not only slows research efforts, but can mean that the research is never completed. Drs. Rich and Diana Driscoll knew that it was time to instigate a change. With great excitement, we are pleased to announce that Prettyill.com, run by Dr. Diana Driscoll, is currently partnering with Total Eye Care to begin preliminary clinical trial testing.
The initial patient testing consists of a blood test ($800 value), a questionnaire and ocular fundus photos ($125 value) and will be administered at NO COST to you, the patient. The deadline for participating in this clinical trial pretesting is November 31, 2012. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with one or more of the diseases listed above, please contact us at Clinical_Trials@prettyill.com.
