Help Save Brave Belinda -Brain & Spine Surgery

My sweet sister Belinda needs our help urgently. We must get her from GA to NY ASAP for a complex Brain, Skull and Spinal Surgery. She’s survived 4 successful Brain & Spinal Surgeries, but the weight of the hardware that is holding her skull off of her brainstem has given way. Her pain has become too unbearable to handle and her health is declining. The symptoms caused by brainstem and spinal cord compression are not only painful, but can be life-threatening. (Her complex combination of medical issues is: Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, Chiari Malformation and Adrenal Insufficiency which require a rare Specializing Neurosurgeon). Belinda is an incredible sister and Mom who is loved by many. She’s humble, kind and is always helping others. Please prayerfully consider donating, let’s save her life together. We nearly lost her forever this time last year. I was there when they had to resuscitate her. Her kids need her. We need her. Please help. Please pray over any obstacles standing in the way such as COVID-19 restrictions (NY Quarantine could mean 2 add’l weeks of lodging/travel expenses). She has bravely fought through FOUR invasive Major Brain & Spinal Surgeries that saved her life. We know they work, she just can’t afford all of the out-of-pocket expenses, traveling costs and the many, many related expenses. She needs help funding everything from costly 3D reconstructed imaging, specialist appts, all pre-op, videoconferences, out-of-state appts, recovery, rehabilitation, medication, etc... No one deserves to suffer in pain simply because they’re disabled, poor or bc they don’t want to feel like they’re a bother. We love her dearly and just want her well. Please, please help my sister afford the remaining surgery and medical help she needs. We saw her flourish after God brought her through these previous Surgeries and she has the most incredible faith in the Good Lord to restore her and heal her once again. Belinda hated to admit all this to us, but gave me permission to be open with all so that we can truly help her. She doesn’t have enough funds to pay all of her basic needs and does without a lot. There’s simply no way for her to save up enough funds. She asked that I shorten the fundraiser as she wanted to add additional details to her website at SaveBraveBelinda dot com, but she lost her internet & can’t access it (correctly) yet. So, please be patient with her until she can afford to get it back on as she must have it for out-of-state videoconferencing. Please help by donating.

With Love, from our family to yours. Chelsea
