I am a 32 year old female who sustained an anoxic brain injury from a scuba diving accident in Indonesia on June 7,2011. I was left for dead with no real medical intervention for two weeks. Both sides of my brain's dopamine receptors (putamen) completely died. I developed rapidly progressive secondary parkinsons and dystonia (painful twisting of my legs). i have been in a wheelchair since Feb.12' and due to contractures developed in my left ankle in just three months, I require Achilles tendon lengthening surgery. I am emotionally and financially on my own.The state I live in, OR ,has no specialists able to treat me. SO far it looks like there is only one hospital, UCSF in sf able to help me. I would have to find the money to live in the area for ongoing treatment. I am still waiting on their answer. If not, I have to fly to either Emory in GA or UF in gainsville, both top dystonia hospitals as my brain injury induced dystonia-parkinsonism is so rare. I need to find the hospital able to do my brain and foot surgeries and years of follow0up care. I plan on paying it forward and helping others, but I need to get stable first. Thanks!

During this Giving season I would like to say: Emese has been one of the most extraordinary people I have met. If ever there was a person in this world I would want to help it would be this amazing woman. I know from meeting her and working with her to help her on her journey, she is very worthy of any kind of donation you would be able to give her. Please join me in giving her a little bit of love, and donate to her cause, giving her any kind of hope of ever recovering. I love you Emese and hope all the best for you. Hugs and kisses Joli

We are divers. I'm so sorry. We saw your husband as we were going downtown on the trolley. We're just visiting Portland. I also have PTSD so I understand that aspect. Stay strong.
