Stem Cell Therapy for Sarah

Created April 18, 2018

In April 2016, Sarah's life forever changed. She was involved in a horrible domestic dispute where she received severe head trauma. Her skull was fractured and she had a very significant brain bleed. She spent over a year in the hospital fighting multiple infections along with other setbacks. Sarah has been left wheelchair bound unable to use her right side forcing her and her 10 year old daughter to live with her father in south Florida.

The one dream that keeps her going is to someday walk again. For those who didn’t know Sarah, she was an avid runner, loved CrossFit and was very competitive in anything she tried.

Sarah was, and still is the most giving, unselfish, loving mother, sister, daughter and friend you’ll ever come across. When someone asked for help, Sarah never hesitated to offer her time.

She has been battling back ever since.  The next step in her road to recovery is to receive stem cell therapy and other ongoing treatments. The doctors believe she has a strong opportunity for her nerves and muscles to regenerate giving her the strength to once again stand on her own.  

As many know, Stem Cell therapy is not covered by most insurance companies. There will be tremendous out of pocket expenses and care that she’ll need to get back on her feet.

On May 20th, a team from Siemens will be participating in the Ironman 70.3 Chattanooga Relay in Sarah's honor.  We are raising money to help Sarah get the treatment she needs.  We greatly appreciate your consideration and generosity to help Sarah get back to the person we know she can be! 

Thank you very much for your support!
