    Default We truly, desperately need your help;

    Can anyone please help me re-write the sentence below?
    Did I use semi-colons right? (Frankly, I can never wrap my arms around it...)
    I want to include all the details in one sentence but what i got seems wrong. Please help me, English Kungfu masters!!!

    "We truly, desperately need your help; so she can recover from the depression and become healthy again; so I wonít lose her."

    Thanks much.

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    Hello, Rainous:


    I respectfully suggest something like:

    "We truly, desperately, need your help so that she can recover

    from the depression and become healthy again; then, I won't

    lose her. "
