Janet Bower's"Fix my Shoulder" Fund

7/20/17

Dear Family, Friends, and Community Members,

Could you please pray for healing and repayment of medical expences for my mom?

In December of 2016, my mom, Janet Bower of San Clemente, mildly injured her left arm and shoulder while assisting my grandma to standing for a wheelchair transfer.

Instead of healing, the injured area became worse, causing excruciating pain, nightly loss of sleep, and range of motion.  Eventually she had to go on disability from her two local offices of employment as an Orthodontic Assistant with Dr. Ellen J Glynn of San Clemente, and Dr. Alexander Yuen of Irvine Dental Group and put her future schedule of pre-nursing classes at Saddleback College on hold.

During this time, she endured months of physical therapy, pain management, and cortisone injections, but nothing seemed to help, she only got worse.
Surgery was considered as a last resort, but would not be offered to her as an option for several more months. At the end of her rope, she cried out to God and started searching for any other method to heal her shoulder and bring an end to the constant, excruciating pain!

On the internet she discovered that there was an international sport's doctor and frozen shoulder expert, Dr. Allen Oolo-Austin of Toronto, Canada, who could "unfreeze" shoulder's in one visit. She researched his method and found that his claim to heal in one visit was authentic, and documented by research studies, documentaries, and numerous patient testamonials. His "Trigenics OAT Procedure" was like a miracle cure, unlike anything offered for a frozen shoulder repair in the US. My mom felt God speaking to her, telling her this was her cure!

Without the funds to even get the treatment, she prayed in faith, and believed that God would provide for her to have this treatment and be healed. She applied for the procedure and was approved, was able to borrow funds for treatment and airfare, and was on a plane to Toronto the following week!

The actual procedure was on July 6th, 2017, by Dr. Austin. It took only an hour, and it worked! Mom's shoulder was "unfrozen" and for the first time in months she was raising her left arm above her head! It truly is miraculous! I was able to be her companion during this time as she needed plenty of aftercare and coaching, starting with hourly exercises all night the first night to keep her shoulder free from forming new scar tissue post procedure. 

She was a trooper, getting up every hour on the hour with me to do the painfully difficult stretches, but she got through it and was rechecked the following day and after some minor additional treatment, she was released to return home and told she would be 100% healed and able to go back to work in 6-8 weeks!
Amazing! after 6 and 1/2 months of grueling discomfort and pain, she was now finally on the mend!

Back at home, mom continues her exercises religiously, but can't work and needs to raise funds quickly to repay the loans. The airfare is due by July 22 ($1,300),and trip expenses($500)and treatment($7600), by August 1st. She is existing right now on disability income which is 55% of her normal pay and is reaching out to all our family, friends and community members for help at this time for help in repaying the loans as quickly as possible.

Would you consider giving a small donation to help my mom repay her expenses?  Thank you for any donation, large or small. You will be blessed!!!

Gratefully yours,
