Ok, short and sweet.
This is scary. More so for Joe Rene.
Since late February, Rene has been steadily loosing feeling in her hands and becoming weaker in her arms.
At first Rene was diagnosed with carpel tunnel syndrome. Unconvinced, further pursuit led to an MRI scan of her brain and spine. Results back, the situation suddenly became a lot more serious.
Joe Rene was told her spinal cord is being crushed by 3 vertebrae. They need to be removed and replaced with artificial ones. The spinal cord has already started to change colour at one of the points of compression, indicating the spinal cord is in fact dying. If surgery is not done Asap, the chances of Rene becoming a quadriplegic is 100%.
This information is frightening.
So, this is a request for money to help us deal with this problem.
Rene apparently needs about $7500 up front before even receiving surgery. Unsure of the total cost but is so far over $10,000.
I can only crap on and try to convince you to help, for so long.
Please give us some of your hard earned money. At the very least, please share this campaign.
This is the MRI scan. The fluid surrounding the spinal cord has dissipated. This is over about 6 months. Time has never been so precious.
