To begin with in 2010 our oldest daughter 27 passed away, needless to say we were all devastated as a matter of fact words cant describe how a parent feels to loose a child.  Sharon has had over forty back surgeries and procedures in the last 25 years, but in 2017 she had to undergo a stomach bypass at Mayo Clinic in order to loose some weight for more critical back surgery again. During the process she had a long time hernia which  they thought they would take care of. To repair the hernia they used mesh which is where everything really started to go wrong. In order to compress our story I will be brief and summarize what happened next. The mesh never took and detached from its location and attached it self to her colon, liver, and gal bladder instead. During all this MRI's   and other tests revealed her liver is giving out, Sharon has been informed she has stage 4 non-alcoholic liver disease, and has been put on Mayo Clinics transplant list.  They also found a mass on her left ovary that was cancerous and needed to be removed by having a full hysterectomy. While this was going on her gal bladder blew up 7 times it's normal size suddenly which they told her they had no idea why. Needless to say they had to systematically go in and operate on each area of concern over the next 12 months, this ended up to be 4 major surgeries in a row. She still needs her back operated on because the current hardware in her back has broken. There is a picture of it everyone  can see. But at present something is not working properly, she is unable to eat without getting terribly sick so her body is now robbing the nutrients from her bones and her bones are too weak to hold the hardware that is needed to be installed.  While Sharon was having her gal bladder removed last July 4th. Her mother had fallen in the nursing home she was residing at  and succumb to her injuries several days later. Sharon was just out of her 2nd. of the 4 surgeries and was not allowed to travel to Colorado to her Mom's funeral.  Sharon still needs her back operated on and will eventually need a kidney transplant. Sharon and I are both unable to work. In 2010 I was told by my doctors that I could no longer work I have 3 ruptured disks in my neck, spinal stenosis so bad in the mid back that the canal is almost completely closed and 4 disks in my lower back, they will not operate informing me there is just too much going on and that it will most likely make things worse. As a result they put me on disability. To add insult to injury now the home in which we have rented for the past 11 years, our landlord is going to sell, which means we have to move. We have been financially devastated by all these medical bills and as many of you know disability hardly gives you anything. So we are asking anyone who is able to donate and help us with all of our expenses. Our medical bills and the cost of medicine and supplies has put us in massive debt. with more to come. So if anyone could please help it would be greatly appreciated. Thank You and God Bless.
