$3,175 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 46 people in 51 months

 My son Jimmy who is 25yrs old is a brain tumor survivor. He had a brain tumor removed when he was 2 & 1/2 yrs old.  The same age as my first child Lori was when she passed away to her brain tumor. Jimmy also has mild cerebal palsey. He is non verbal, in diapers ..much like an infant to a five year old. His last brain scan showed brain atrophy in the left temporal lobe.  We are in need of more tests. A good Dr. Who will help us. Jimmy's meds don't work like they should he's up every hour at night. It's hard on me. I got bit by an infected tic and have Lyme disease. And babesia. The Lyme is a bacterial infection that has invaded all my joints. the babesia is a parasite that is living in my red blood cells. I feel like I have the flu all day and pain in my joints. Somedays its hard to walk...It means more meds more drs. visits. treating Lyme and babesia is hard. But Im fighting it...with continued care I can do it....Meanwhile we need help with Jimmys medical care too.  Jimmy also had a tumor removed from his sacral joint when he was 9 and has two surgical screws back there. He needs therapy to improve his muscles. He suffers from general dystonia. Severe muscle spasms.  Please help where you can. I am so thankful to all thoes who have helped. I thank you for donating to Jimmy n I.  All donations above have been used as stipulated for medical. We need to keep this up and running there is more healing! Please help!? Xoxo thank you Linda and Jimmy.

As you all know Jimmy is home from the hospital. He was back in for one day for tests and a routine follow up. The BIG NEWS is that the big University south of where we live is conducting more genetic studies. He’s been a patient there since he was small. They kept the blood samples from 3 yrs ago and can use that frozen blood for testing. It seems he has two “ markers” for something.... they won’t tell me. It’s a syndrome or disease and could be hereditary. The results will take 2-3 Months! Please keep Jimmy in your prayers! I will continue to update here as the journey continues. Medical bills still seem to be strapping us so I must keep our gofundme up. Please share when n where u can! Thank you and Gods blessings to you! Love Li n and Jimmy. . Xo

We are still in the ICU getting IV antibiotics and a strong sedatives. His veins are shot so he’s getting a PICC line put in. Please share, pray, and donate where you can! We thank you in advance for all your care. Read prior update for more information on Jimmy’s latest condition. He’s had a pretty tough time and really needs a break. We pray for healing! And a happy boy!! Xoxo

UPDATE: Help is needed through donations for Jimmy’s medical care right now. All money collected has been used through the past 3 yrs that this gofundme has been up. It was used as stipulated for medical, so all of it except the latest donation of 40 dollars has been spent. The need is ever present that’s why I am posting this. Please read update. Thank you. Please read UPDATE: Jimmy is still in the ICU. He is receiving IV antibiotics . He is being kept heavily sedated while they run tests on him. They are looking for the source of an infection that has caused his face to swell 3xs the size on the left side. This is the 2nd time we’ve been in the hospital for this in the last 3 weeks. He had surgery on his outer ear from involvement which occurred from his facial swelling. His ear is healed and tests will have to be done in regards to his hearing in that ear. Please help with this gofundme. I am staying with Jimmy while he is here, a few have asked what they can do.....donate, pray, pass this along. Whatever you can do! Thank you . Love Jimmy n Linda.

Jimmy is in the hospital again... he has an infection that has caused him two separate stays in the hospital in the past three weeks. He’s had surgery on his ear and the stitches were removed yesterday but the infection still present in his face is still a problem. So here we are in the ICU with Iv antibiotics and other drugs. Please pray for jimmy and share this. I am posting this to reach more people and want to thank you all for your thought and prayers. Some have asked if I’m staying with Jimmy and yes they are letting me stay with him . All donations you see have been used as stipulated and we’re very appreciated. Under the circumstances I must leave this up and running yet. Thank you again from Jimmy n I. ♥️

When I made the video explaining what is written as our story....I needed to look at notes on the table. they needed to coincide with pictures that were being uploaded into the piece. But another reason was between crying twice during the taping and me getting overwhelmed that I am doing this...well....you dont know what it feels like until you have to do something like this. Its humbling but also it makes us stop and take a hard look at whats going on. How we got here...how do we get out. The wonderful people so far who have helped. It overwhelms me brings me to tears. I thank God for all of you who have taken the time to read, watch, donate, share......I thank you from the bottom of my heart. words cant express the thanks. When we are better I will pay it forward like I said in the video.....I will help someone in need. Ive done it before and I'll do it again. Out from the ashes a phoenix will rise...stronger...that will be Jimmy and I. with your help we can do it. xoxo
