Teresa is a very strong loving woman who even though she may be in excruciating pain will try to live life to the fullest! Her two children are her world and are what keep her pushing thru the pain and tears although no one would ever know it because of her perfect bright smile and cute laugh. She knows if she doesn’t get the help she needs she could go to sleep and never wake up and that is the harsh reality.
Teresa has Polyostotic fibrous dysplasia and needs surgery to remove parts of her skull and replace them with implants that will save her brain and nerves and ultimately her life!
She will need multiple costly surgeries that will take place in Los Angeles, CA at the Skull Base Institute. She has been turned away by ALL doctors who say surgery is not an option until we came across Dr.Shahinian who is known for helping others in the same situation and improving their quality of life. This is Teresa’s last resort and we do not want to lose her beautiful smile and positive attitude on life. Please help us get her to Dr.Shahinian by donating anything you can we appreciate it more than you know and hope one day she can live a long life and not worry about never having the opportunity to do things like zip lining (on her bucket list).
Sincerely- Family of Teresa
