Sandra Ramos’s Spinal Surgery Fund

Our dear, Sandra Ramos has been diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis. Spinal Stenosis is a condition in which your spinal canal starts to narrow. The open spaces between the vertebrae start to get smaller. The tightness is pinching her spinal cord. Normally the spinal cord measures at 12mm and hers is measuring at only 3-4mm. The pinching of her spinal cord is causing numbness in her left arm. She has almost no function in the left arm anymore, and can’t move her arm up past 35 degrees. Simple tasks such as getting dressed or driving have become really difficult for her, and she has been relying on others to help her.

Sandra will have to have immediate surgery on her neck and will be in a neck brace for at least 2 months. During that time she will not be able to work, and maybe even longer. There is no 100% guarantee that she will regain function of her arm, but it will prevent it from getting worse. Insurance will not cover the total cost of surgery and physical therapy if needed.

Sandra is always looking after family and friends making sure they are taken care of. She has been a nurse for 40 years. Over the last 15 years she has been a hospice nurse, and gives the utmost care to all of her patients. She goes over and above to make sure her patients and their families are at ease during a difficult time. She has been called a guardian angel by several of her patients’ families, and definitely is one to all of her family and friends. It’s time that we are her guardian angels.

It is hard seeing someone you love, who is such an independent woman, become frustrated with pain and the inability to do daily tasks.

Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated to help cover medical costs not covered by insurance and to help while she is out of work. We also ask for prayers for Sandra to ease her pain and give her strength.

We are grateful for everything family and friends have done in the last few weeks while going through the testing and diagnosis stages, and appreciates all of your continued support.

- John, Ahna, and Andrew
