Angela is in need of a Peripheral Nerve Stimulator (PNS).

This device once implanted will reduce the intensity and frequency of the headache pain she has experienced since finishing chemotherapy in 2011.  This procedure will cost $5,000 after Medicare pays their part.

We did the trial PNS after raising $3600 for the procedure.  She will get this out on April 8th.  The pain will return when the temporary device is removed.  We are working hard to raise money to move forward.

We will have to raise at least half of the $5,000 before she can get the permanent one implanted.

Angela developed a rare cancer called Burkitt's Lymphoma in 2010 at age 30.  This cancer is normally a childhood cancer and not often seen in the US.  She was in the hospital for about 5 months receiving aggressive chemotherapy for the aggressive fast growing cancer.  She had to get chemo in her blood stream as well as in the fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. 

The aggressive chemotherapy and port she had in her head to deliver the chemo to her spinal fluid has left long lasting complications. 

Angela has two children Tara 4, and Savanna 8 and her husband Regan of 15 years.

Hopefully we can get enough raised that Angela will feel the relief from the constant pain she has experienced for the past two and half year.

Thank You for all of your help and prayers!!
