Juanita's troubles began when a routine surgery went horribly wrong in Mar 08. Due to so many unforeseen complications she is now fighting for her life. After having been told by Drs. everywhere that there is nothing they can do, we found one who has hope More ...

Juanita's story actually began in March 08 when what was to be a simple surgery went VERY wrong. The Dr's in VT, NH, NY and Boston Mass tried for several years to correct the problem with no luck. For years she has undergone surgeries and testing that shows the strength of her will to survive. After years she has been told there is nothing more they can do.

  Her trials have been continuing, and after the last 5 operations she would unexplainedly go into respiratory failure. They now know it's caused from an allergy to the anesthesia . She must have a life saving surgery as soon as possible, without it she has days to months with her family and friends. The obvious catch is that no doctor will operate and do the needed surgery because they know that to operate on her will cause immediate respiratory failure, and possibly another heart attack which happened on her last attempt at her needed surgery.

Her only hope was to find a medical research center that works only on anesthesia. She has finally found her angel, a Doctor thats willing to break the drugs apart in each step. Step one- being the part that sedates you, step 2-the one the puts you to sleep..3-the gas that keeps you asleep. The problem is that in each one of the stages there are 100's of drugs...Finding the one or maybe several that affect her is going to be time consuming. But now there is something that she has not had for some time, HOPE.

She will have to travel to Tennessee for an extended stay. The Doctor is demanding she stay within 2 miles of the hospital they will be working on her case. She has lodging, travel, and food expenses.

I was always told that the burden is light when many carry the load. Please help my friend with your prayers and support. There are many that love her, and we all thank you.
