Denise Schimpf Medical Fund

I am advocating for my sister, Denise.  Denise has been battling with P.A.D (Peripheral Artery Disease) for the last 6 years since being diagnosed at the age of 41. It is the same disease that took our mother at the young age of 58.  Denise has previously had 5 surgeries in her legs.  (3 stints, 2 balloons) placed over the years. On October 1st, Denise was told the disease has now reached the arteries in her chest, and her right femoral artery is completey blocked. She is scheduled for surgery this week.  Her Dr. is hoping he can place a stint or balloon but is preparing her for a bi-pass.  Denise has been placed on disability and is beginning her fight for permanent disability.  Denise is the strongest most loving person I have ever known.  She is a single mother to three beautiful girls.  Her youngest daughter (Emma) is 14years old.  Denise's only wish is to get Emma through high school.  The money we raise will help pay her existing, current, and near future medical bills, help her pay rent, and put food on the table until she is granted permanent disability.  The Doctors have told her "you were dealt a bad hand and born with a hereditary disease." Without the proper medical procedures Denise's life expectancy is not bright.  But with all of your help and the proper medical procedures she can look forward to a better quality of life. Thank you for your support.
