Meredith Hart is my younger brother and he is now paralyzed after a medical procedure that was performed to help relieve his back pain.
To start the story, he was diagnosed with bone cancer (Multiple myeloma) nearly two years ago. He received radiation and chemo treatments. These were successful in killing the cancer which was on his pelvic bone.
The cancer caused damage to the pelvic bone which cause him intense pain.
He under went what was supposed to be “ day surgery” on October 6th. The doctors were removing fluid that had collected in the area where the bone was damaged and replacing that area with a bone like material that would harden. There were complications and the material entered his spinal cord sac and hardened there causing him to be paralyzed from the groan down.
Right now his family’s only income is Social Security Disability. His wife is completing her last semester of studies (student teaching) to earn her teaching certificate.
His house is in need of major repairs, the most immediate will be to modified the bathroom to meet the needs of a paraplegic.
