Stephanie's Medical Bills

$6,345 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 47 people in 26 months
Stephanie has been afflicted with a serious brain injury in the brain stem. On March 22, she underwent  a dangerous biopsy that lended no diagnosis. She went through 2.5 months of what she calls hell at UT Southwestern. Her family continues to stay by her side as she continues Physical, Speech and Occupational therapies. She is still unable to walk and eat along with many other ailments.

Stephanie is a light in many people's lives, but she is struggling right now. As you can imagine, the medical bills are astronomical for the surgery and 2.5 months in the hospital. If you can, please donate or even share with friends. Blessings!

An update for the amazing people that have been so supportive!

1. I'm very fatigued a lot. Since I'm relearning everything, I have to focus.. A LOT more. Please pray for less fatigue.

2. I'm still unable to drink regular liquids, and still get aLl Mede and most calories out of a G Tube in my stomach. I have a 3rd swallow study soon.. PLEASE PRAY.

3. I'm still walking in a walker and riding in a wheelchair. This is the most frustrating part. I'm working hard to walk again. Please pray that I do.

Hi everyone!

The move went smoothly thanks to my boyfriend Robert, my aunt Karen and my friend Adam. I'm now living in Dallas with my boyfriend's wonderful parents Robert's Sr. and Carla! A few life updates :

1. I'm still walking with a large walker called a Nimbo. Please pray for balance and stability while walking.

2. I'm still getting most of my calories via feeding tube. I'm eating ~500 cals orally. Please pray for my swallow and strength in the left side of my face.

3. I'm getting vocal injections on Friday that will help my voice. My left vocal chord is paralyzed right now. Please pray for a quick healing of the paralysis.

4. Mainly, I want to dance and be free. I'm still in shock about this whole event.

In general, I'm doing much better than I was when I left the hospital. Thank you so much to everyone that has donated. The money helps tremendously when paying bills or buying medical equipment.

Hi guys, thank you so much to everyone who has donated so far! I am still on the rocky road to recovery. A few updates in case you're interested!

1. I am eating small portions of puréed food daily, but most of my calories and water still comes from a feeding tube.

2. I am walking with a large walker, but I usually use a wheelchair because it's easier.

3. I am gaining independence but still require 24/7 support.

4. I am moving at the beginning of July.

My medical bills are continuing to pile up! If you can, please donate or share. ❤️
