If only I were a FISH!

The suffering started in 1991, 8 spinal fusions, nerve damage and a knee replacement and no pain relief at all! Life as Skip Fischer knows it is NOT at all comfortable or enjoyable. He has sunk into a deep depression and knowing he cannot provide for his family, spend quality time with his wife, kids and grandkids has broken his spirit. There is a small distant ray of hope and relief for him. If we can raise enough money to purchase this water therapy spa he can sepnd 4 hours a day pain free rebuilding his muscles by submerging himself in spa therapy. This will take pressure off the spine. Doctors say he needs this! Insurance will NOT help him with this cost even though it is medically necassary. His future holds far more surgeries than he cares to consider. Although heavy narcotics are keeping him semi comfortable some of the time, they have also taken away his quality of life by keeping him heavily sedated most of the day/night. Please help us help him! There is noone more loving than this husband,father, uncle, brother and friend. I know he would help every person and animal he could if he were able. Every little bit helps. please share this!
