Hi my lovelies.. Just wanted to...
Hi my lovelies.. Just wanted to let you all know that my standing frame is so awesome, Going to help my blood pressure, circulation, Build my muscles and strengthen my bones, all very important things for me at this point. My blood pressure has been so low, I'm on the verge of passing out, but all because of you guys, that will get better now. I'm going to start the house hunt now and plan to keep you totally updated... I might need some help if you don't mind getting down & dirty to renovate :) sending you all my love and hoping everyone has family and friends and warmth & love this holiday season. Thank you all for being on my side and carrying me through these harder times. I don't know where I would be without all of you. Remind yourselves everyday how special you are and how you've changed my life and many others. With love. M

Hi guys! Sorry it has taken...
Hi guys! Sorry it has taken us so long to update. Things have been crazy lately. Amazing, but crazy. I wish I could thank and hug each of you personally on behalf of my sister. I've seen her hope and smile change so much the past few weeks all because of Chivers all over the world. She was able to purchase a very expensive piece of equipment called a "standing frame" thanks to all of you. This will help with blood flow, blood clots, muscle gain and so many other things. It would never be possible without all of you. So thank you so very much. She is also currently working with a Realtor and looking into houses in the Anne Arundel County area... how exiting to be able to say that!! Lastly, we are currently looking into a place called ProjectWalk. It is based out of CA and from the looks of it... it changes peoples lives. We have read and researched this place and believe this could be an amazing opportunity for her if they accepted her and we could get her there... To read more about ProjectWalk... please refer to their site at http://www.projectwalk.org/
Any suggestions, kind words and help is always welcomed and appreciated. Please email at HopeforMMS@yahoo.com
Ill just leave this picture right here!! CHIVE ON!

I'm originally from Kent Island (and a loyal Chivette), and seeing your story on the Chive was pretty incredible. It's wonderful to see such inspiring stories with familiar faces from home- first your story, and now what you've done for Addy and her family. It's truly amazing! KCCO

May God Bless you and may he keep you safe and heal you. I am a single mom of four so I wish I could help you more. All I can do is say a prayer for you. I read your story and I could only imagine your struggle and pain. We should all be thankful for our health because we can never know how life can change. Keep your head up and continue fighting :)

Hi Melissa, just wanted to let you know I cried for over 3 hours when I read your story. It hit so close to home and I just couldn't control my emotions. I am so happy to see you received the miracle you deserve. I am 30 and have multiple medical issues and this year I have been when chair bound. Reading your story just brought out some much emotion because I could honestly feel what you are going through. I am so sorry life has dealt you such a hard hand, but your spirit and determination brought a smile to my face. I know all the money in the world will not being back your legs, but I am so happy you will be able to live comfortable and not have to worry any more. It's amazing at the amount of good people left in this world. If things ever slow down I would like to chat sometimes. It is nice to share stories and experiences. My email is email@example.com. My name is Jodi Trosclair. Hope to hear from you.

Stay strong Melissa! There is no way I can relate to your struggle, just know that you have touched a lot of people with your strength. Hell, over 12,000 Chivers smashed all fundraising records. And they did that because they believe in you. KCCO

so the paralysis is caused by autoimmune response ? try looking thru www.curezone.com and www.earthclinic.com (Ted's remedies) for possible help. read that boron/borax might help eliminate parasites/pathogens that may be attacking the spinal column and causing the problem.

Melissa, you're truly an amazing woman! You have defined what heart, compassion, love, strength, and trust in God is all about. You have given others to have faith, you have given a reason for others to continue to fight through their very own struggles. I admire you and respect you, I salute you as much as I would a brother that served our country or nation. Thank you for your valor, your heroism. Stay strong, stay in prayer, and stay within his guidance, the good lord has bigger plans for you. The individuals that fight the hardest are usually his warriors, he sets them as examples, he uses them as his instrument.

There is a cancer treatment created by Dr. Bob Beck. There are videos on YouTube that explain it. He is not trying to sell anything, nor am I. It might be able to help your Transverse Myelitis. I know three people who have been cured of cancer. Just watch the video. The testimonials are shorter.
