Hello, my name is Jessica Shreve I am the daughter of Melody Shreve, I’m starting this fundraiser because we are going to be in Pittsburgh for at least a week or maybe even more, my mother was diagnosed with necrotizing fasciitis back in July at Saint Vincent’s in erie, pa, which left her with a 27cm wound, and in a lot of pain as well, she had 5 surgeries in that week that the disease progressed, they did get all the of necrotic tissue the first time and they didn’t see anymore anywhere else on the MRI scan. My mom is also diabetic and she has CHF (congestive heart failure). This time the necrotizing fasciitis spread to her bone and to her spine, and she has a large blood clot in the left ventricle of her heart (bottom left) they have her on blood thinners for right now but her surgery is on Wednesday for the necrotizing fasciitis, they will also be putting a catheter in her heart. The reason we are raising money is for me to stay down in Pittsburgh with her so she’s not alone, I am also her primary care giver and have taken care of her since the first time she’s had surgery, we are scared about what’s going to happen and all the what if’s, and we are not a wealthy family, so it would help my family a lot if you’d be able to donate, I really don’t want to leave my mom alone in Pittsburgh because I don’t have enough money to stay here with her. Anything would help to, I thank you so much for just taking the time to read this and understand what we are going through as a family.
