on November 13, 2018 my beautiful sister will be undergoing a major surgery. After having a rare cancer called rahbdomyosarcoma in her neck muscle tissue. She was treated with chemo and high doses of radiation. because of the radiation There are serious repercussions. unfortunately last year she was diagnosed with osteoradionecrosis which means the radiation kills the bone muscle and tissue and cuts off the blood supply. The end result is she lost the saliva gland lost all teeth on right side has numbing in the face and now her jaw bone has completely deteriorated and needs to be replaced. A team of three surgeons from Mount Sinai hospital in NY will take the bone ,tissue ,nerves and blood vessels from her leg and replace it with a rod ,then using the bone to reconstruct and replace the whole right side of her jaw then doing nerve graft to hopefully regain feeling that she has lost. 7 to 10 days in hospital including four in ICU eight weeks to full recovery therapy to learn to walk with a rod and also therapy on her jaw. Living in Florida and coming to New York for surgery, her insurance has little or no coverage. We are reaching out to anyone that can help. If you are unable to help please share her story it would be greatly appreciated and prayers are always welcome. Thank you in advance for any help that you can give us and please remember to share her story❤️
