About This Cause

Update: had another TIA (ministroke) yesterday. A few years ago, I was in dire straits from autoimmune disease. My friends came to the rescue, chipped in and helped me get life changing/saving stem cell treatments, for which I am extremely grateful. Unfortunately the illnesses have lasting effects in the form of bone disease. AVN or avascular necrosis has claimed my hips and shoulders. I’ve spend thousand on stem cells and had five surgeries, including a hip replacement. I urgently need 5 more; 3 with bone grafts and two on a broken TMJ (jaw joint.) These surgeries must be done out of town, ASAP, (already postponed due our move) and require complicated plans for my care. I will not be able to function for months. Scleroderma, arthritis and AVN are the likely culprits in my jaw deterioration. AVN is dead bone, necrosis. All are extremely painful and debilitating.
To make matters worse, mother and I were forced to move due to elder and handicapped discrimination. We are still fighting that battle but have already moved; these are thousands we weren’t prepared to pay after being depleted by my stem cell treatments.
For those who’ve helped before, thank you so very much. I wish the struggle were over. With your help I’ll get through it all. Thank you.

    Surgery 1 is over. However, due to the extremely complex nature of the case, I had to cancel my flight and stay and extra day to have molds made and discuss strategy with my surgeon Dr. Filmore. I still haven’t paid for the metal sensitivity testing and now can’t manage this extra change in plans and expenses.

    I am still short on the 600$ metal sensitivity test few, and arranging the considerable after care needed... it’s going to be very difficult at first. I don’t do well with surgery, and this is a big one. Thank you.

    Still needing to raise the 600$ for metal testing; if I’m allergic to nickel, cobalt etc I could have a severe reaction or worse. If allergic they make a “compassionate care device” out of all titanium. I'm scheduled to go to the lab with my kit on Monday. I have four other appointments that day, and leave the following day for Mayo.
