Please help keep us together. I have put $1 as our goal because I really have no set amount that I am trying to reach. I am looking for enough to catch up on rent so we don’t face eviction as our rent is $1237 a month, buy special nutrients to help Dee thrive, or to keep my stamina up. I am diabetic on insulin. Recently I was given prescriptions that came to $115 that I had to turn down. I skip insulin every other month.


In 1974 my daughter was born with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus. She is also epileptic. We have come a long way since that stormy morning she was born with her spinal cord herniated outside of her vertebrae with no skin covering it. I was told she would not live out the day. In spite of countless life endangering surgeries and medical issues Dee championed life and surpassed expectations for Recovery. She is not only my daughter — she is my HERO.

In December of 2017 she had emergency surgery that has left her bedridden. I have been trying to get her back to baseline for months but infection keeps setting her back.

Unfortunately I have been suffering from medical issues myself. At 69 years of age it’s not as easy to bounce back and ignore pain, but my love for my daughter keeps me going. I need help to bring her home and keep up with our living expenses and medical supplies that Medicare does not pay for.

If we were fortunate enough to raise enough funds I could hire a private duty nurse to provide support and keep us together. If we raised more than enough I would use it for first and last month rent on an apartment that was more like a home. Right now we are in a small studio.

To get a better idea who Dee is review all the photos. I try to post updates frequently.

We appreciate any and all kindness and support.

Dee is back in the hospital with infection again. Two steps forward three backward. And just when we start to get a system and get the things we need she goes back in the hospital. We have to start all over every time.

Dee had real clothes on yesterday instead of just a hospital gown! Occupational Therapy helped her get clothing on with all the tubes! Little things mean the world to her!

Dee is the most courageous soul I have ever known. She pushes past pain and atrophy daily. Her goal? To get back in her wheelchair and ride over to Dunkin’ Donuts. She has been bedridden since December 5.
