Miracles for Marissa

                            MIRACLES FOR MARISSA

Hello, my name is Lee Ann Lewis Tejeda.  I am a long-time friend, Delta Zeta sister of Marissa DeVaul Parmer. As some of you may know, Marissa was diagnosed with Epilepsy in 2005. Throughout the years, she has experienced uncontrollable seizures and later, was also diagnosed with Fibromyalgia.  Since November 2015 the seizures have spread to both sides of the brain, becoming more intense, and occurring 6-10 times a day and also many in her sleep.  She lost her license, making life as we all know it, a little more challenging, as far as, getting to work, social outings, or even the simple things such as picking up her children from  academic and/or sports activities.

 If you know Marissa, sitting at home and doing nothing is not for her, so she has trudged along with Brent, her boys and family/friends by her side.  But needless to say, the medical expenses for monthly specialized medications and procedures have added up and recently, Marissa underwent surgery to implant the RNS system into/on her brain. The surgery is of cutting edge technology and if all goes as planned, she could one day be seizure FREE….Miracles for Marissa!!   However, until that day comes, she is required to be in Florida every eight weeks for follow-up appointments, which is why I’ve created the go fund me page to help with medical and travel expenses.

 Please consider donating, any donation, no matter how small would be graciously appreciated and let’s rally around Marissa and her family and help relieve some of the financial pressure so she can focus on healing and being a mom, wife, daughter and colleague/friend.

 Much love,

Lee Ann
