My dad, Mark Boner, hurt his back several years ago in the oil field. I have watched my father over the years become more and more debilitated from this past injury. He has degenerative disc disease, disc bulges and old fractures in his vertebrae. He has been evaluated by a doctor at the Oklahoma Spine Institute and has been told he would be a great candidate for laser spine treatment, but he has to have $10000 down to have the procedure done. Being able to raise this money for my dad would give back some of his quality of life. It would also get him off of so many of the prescription main medications he has to take just to take the edge off his pain he has every day. These medications have so many side effects from long term use and I would nothing love more than to see my dad be able to eliminate having to take them. And I would also love to be able to see my dad not hurt everyday to the point he shakes because he is in so much pain. Please help get my dad in to have this surgery. His doctor told him he needs this surgery more now than ever because his spinal cord is starting to narrow around his nerves and causing numbness in his leg. Please help my dad before he becomes completely disabled and loses his quality of life. I don't want to see my dad end up in a wheelchair. He has worked hard all his life and is a wonderful man who loves his family very much. He has 11 grandchildren that love their papa and I want them to be able to spend as much time with him as possible. Thank you to everyone that is willing to help.
