Jess Roberts   TERRA ALTA, WV
Jessica's therapy was going well until she started having all day spasms. Instead of getting rid of adhesions the last few days, they have had to work on the spasming of her intestines. In order for her to complete this treatment thoroughly, she will need to stay at least 'part' of next week. Because of this, I am asking again for friends & family to please post as we have reset our goal to $9000, to cover the extra treatments & their room & board. Anything at all will help. We hate to ask again, but not asking at this point is giving up & that, we will not do. Rita (Jess' Mom)
FROM JESS: Not the status I want to post...but I owe it to all of you to keep you informed. I have had the longest, most intense spasm in my entire torso...front and back for 18 hours straight. These have happened since the beginning but only last 6 or so hours. I had 5 one hour treatments today and they spent the whole time trying to release the spasm as opposed to breaking adhesions. It appears I'm going to have to stay longer than originally thought. This is not good. You amazing people have done so much to get me here. And it's working slowly...but I can't afford to stay any longer. I have 2 days left. For the first time in a long time...I may have to come home and consider surgery. Idk what to do. It was going so well...they were breaking up the scar tissue...I could tell a huge difference. But, with the spasms...it's hard to get deep enough to work the adhesions. I have a lot of thinking to do. And I'm asking for prayers tonight...!! Love you all.

From Rita: Less than $1000 & treatment will be covered. I've made an arrangement for contributions to be going directly to checking account for her therapies on a daily basis, starting Monday. Keep those prayers coming for a safe trip this weekend. She & Brian will be leaving Sunday morning to drive down. She decided this would be better for her. She won't have to be around a lot of people or worry about her pain overtaking her on the plane. YOU ALL ROCK!!!!! (& hopefully she'll be ROCKING herself soon) ;)

Clear passages called this morning & they were able to offer Jess an appointment on Wednesday, the 29th of this month. They are moving things around to get her in ASAP, as they know the circumstances of her health. Not sure we can make that goal by then, but I will beg, borrow (not steal;) to get her there. Please spread the word & help us to get my precious daughter the help she needs. Thank you in advance for everything you do. Rita Burnside

We are overwhelmed by the outpouring of love & compassion we have received since this began yesterday afternoon. I felt like a beggar at first but had no choice but to fight for my daughters life anyway possible. She has fought so hard & endured so very much to fight the cancer back into remission. She can't die from starvation when there is something out there to help fix her. Every share is another contact. Thank you so much for your time & prayers.
