Family, I’m not sure what that means to everyone, but for me it means everything. And in our family when one is suffering we all do. It is with a heavy heart and a growing prayer that I turn to you guys with a plea for help.
Many of you know me, we have chatted on twitter or periscope, I do not ask for anything from anyone I can not give something back in return. But this is not for, me it is for a family member who is in dire need.
One of my family had to have a rod put into her back when she was A child. She needed it to continue walking because her spine was misshapen and it would have crippled her eventually, had she not gotten it.
Well now some thirty years later the rod has come loose and she is again in danger of it crippling her. The pain she is in is a constant thing. She is now having trouble walking and the shape of her spine is drawing her body to one side. Thankfully we was blessed so much, by the leading spine surgeon in the world taking her case. All the other doctors she seen had passed her over, out of fear of not succeeding. He told her yes I can fix you.
The surgery and the arrangement’s have been made. They will have to travel to New York, where they will have to stay for no less than twenty one days. The expenses of such a trip will be enormous, even going as cheap as possible. The whole family has been struggling with ways to make sure this trip would be possible.
Her and her husband have been hard workers and wonderful people their whole lives. And do not ask for more than they need from life. Their young son took it upon himself, to do what the rest of us failed to think of. He started a gofundme account in her name. Trying like the rest of us to do anything he could to help his mom.
Their son set the gofundme at 1,000 but truth is they need closer to 6,000 for the husbands lodging, plane tickets as she isn’t able to stand the drive there, food, taxi’s and just over all living expenses. So I ask everyone if you are able please donate what you can to help them. If your not able to donate then please say a prayer that this works out for them. That’s all we can ask.
The link for the gofundme as well as pictures of her ex-rays are below. Thank you for any donation or prayers you can send their way.
As you can see the rod and screws have come loose no longer supporting her spine. And she is in tremendous pain.
Here is the gofundme and again if you can’t donate that’s ok, A prayer is just as welcome. And thank you again from the bottom of our families heart.
