Once again i am at a health crossroads, my spinal stimulator isnt working ! Didnt realize how much I need it for just daily task, brushing teeth , hair, putting clothes on ,ect.. Surgery is the only fix to get electric back in my arms to ease the PAIN!! More ...
Margaret has fought a silent battle with RSD (reflex sympathetic dystrophy) and the horrific chronic pain it brings to a persons body, for 5 yrs now in my arms. Those that have traveled this journey with Margaret see her as one of the strongest people they know, with a heart that warms a room This chronic disorder robs most people of the ability to function normally in their daily lives. Because people know Margaret as a strong athletic , cheerful person ALL the time they are not aware of the underlying pain she battles every day. She does not let it destroy her life, pushes through to another day..
Margaret has a spinal stimulator that sends electric pulses into her arms , which provides pain relief. The surgical implantation of the spinal stimulator was a blessing that Margaret calls her "re-birthday" because it has helped her carry on with life's daily functions ! The stimulator includes 2 metal leads in the neck and a cord that goes down the spine to a battery into the bum, making her a bionic woman !

Recently, one of the 2 metal leads broke, which stopped all of the electrical pulses to Margaret's body, leaving her with intense chronic pain from the RSD.

Margaret's doctor has advised her that the solution is surgery for the 2 metal leads in her neck have to be replaced. The problem is there is no insurance for this pre existing issue .
In order for Margaret to resume her life in a normal and less painful way, it is imperative that she have this surgery as soon as possible.

All of you know she has a hard time asking for ANY kind of help , but this time she needs it! Surgery isn't cheap and the time to re-hab after surgery is costly to her being self employed . If you have any ideas for raising funds to help , please email all ideas .
*****If you can make any donation, great! If not, please send this out to people you know and always include Margaret in your blessings and prayers, if you do so.
