Maria had her 4th surgery

Our dear friend Maria has had three serious surgeries to literally stop her spinal column from completely deteriorating since last September, the condition I am unable to pronounce or even comprehend. She has now had her 4th surgery, a very complicated and potentially dangerous surgery on her neck because the bone loss and damage is so severe that they had to go in there and replace bone and install more metal hardware to realign her neck. Maria is suffering from extreme pain but is being so proactive completely naturally and holistically addressing the pain and inability to move sometimes. She is diligent about her physical therapy despite the pain she is in. Hopefully this last surgery proves to help her the most. This plight has drained her financially, honestly she wants to work but anything extrenious at this time can be very dangerous for reinjuring. It is to the point that she needs our help! She has irons in the fire but needs help. She is so grateful for all that have supported her through this. Every penny counts for her. Any donation will help her with overwhelming costs and bills piling up not to mention basic living costs. Thank you for reading her story and wanting to help how ever you are able. Lets let her know we are here for her, so she can stay strong and focus on recovering especially a full recovery, after this intense surgery.
