This story is about my wife Of 26yrs, Gayle Otero. A mother of 3 amazing blessings. All her life she had been healthy, active and full of life. Always the adventure seeker of the bunch and capable of multitasking. This all changed 4yrs ago when she started shuffling her leg, lost over 20lbs, dizzy spells which caused her to have a car accident. Agonizing pain in the scapula and spine, change of posture, cupping of the right hand and lack of energy plus many other symptoms. Totally unaware of her medical condition, I began the quest for answers to relieve her symptoms and excruciating pain. It’s heart breaking to see the agony and pain she’s living. This entailed seeing numerous conventional and alternative/ natural doctors. These doctors took every test imaginable plus multiple methods of healing but with no relief of symptoms and over $200k spent on treatments. During this time, our family Life changed drastically and in April 2017, UCLA Medical had officially diagnosed her with “Parkinson’s”. We didn’t even know how to accept this, but we embraced it! Her loss of motor skills now requires me to dress, undress her, and fully support her in preparing and cutting her meals. My life changed overnight because not only did I have the responsibility of being the provider of the family, I also took over all of her chores as a mother and house wife. WOW!! We realized how much she gave of herself to the family, leaving a giant void. Please appreciate and don’t ever take for granted the work of a mother/ spouse. I drive 4hrs for business to then come home to grocery shop , cook, clean, wash, you name it I gratefully do it with 5hrs of sleep, to get up the next morning and gratefully do it all over again. Finally after prayerfully setting our positive intentions, the answer to our prayers appeared miraculously. It lead our souls to a devine doctor in Cuenca, Ecuador who treats Parkinson’s with a very high success rate which gave us hope and hope is all we need. She received 1 regenerative stem cell treatment (not available in the states) which helped slow down the degeneration. This is/was the first treatment that actually helped her of all the prior treatments she’s had. Her forecast is mostly magical with a sure chance of a miracle. She is in need of 3 more treatments which are time sensitive, and must be done 1 every 30dys. Our goal is to raise $30,000 to cover the cost of her 3 treatments. With LOVE and GRATITUDE we ask that you help in achieving this goal, so that my wife’s quality of life returns. “Let all that you do be done in LOVE (1 Corinthians 16:14). Please donate or share. IN GRATITUDE WE THANK YOU, LOVE IS ALL WE NEED.
