Help Kelly pay for neurosurgery

11 years ago my family lost an amazing man, my grandfather.  It wasn't a sudden death but it was a progressive death, although our family at that time had no idea what we were dealing with or that it would result in that. In a matter of months he lost all muscle mass and mobility in his left arm.  As a short time went on it became harder for him to swallow food. A choking accident occurred resulting in a hospital trip and everything went down hill from there. We lost him at the age of 65. Now my momma (age 48) in a matter of 7 months has lost 70 - 80 percent of her strength in her right arm (her dominant arm) and has lost a lot of the muscle mass (sound familiar?) This has unfortunately caused her to have to stop working and kept her from doing many daily activities that she once could do. This is a woman who has gone from nursing, helping build barns, hunting, beating me in arm wrestling (that was hard to admit) to now not being able to even enjoy the things she once loved. On top of all of that her left arm has weakened little by little as well.  At this point in time we do not know what is causing this. This is why we need your help. Anything that you can donate will go towards finding the problem and fixing it. So far we have only spoken to one place about surgery and the quote is $15,000.  That is the price for neurosurgery at one facility but unfortunately it  is not that cheap everywhere. We aren't sure exactly what is going on so we don't know what route we will take to fix the problem. Also, physical therapy and monthly bills need to be paid as well. Any amount helps. Whether you donate or you are unable to donate, please keep her in your prayers!!! We serve a mighty God. Thank you all so much. God Bless.
