For those of you who don' t know their love story it is like no other! After being married nearly over 20 years Terri was diagnosed with Ovarian cancer-but THAT is not the problem. She also has what only 1% of this type of cancer victim has, Paraneoplastic-cerebellar Degeneration. With out using fancy words this is what she/they are dealing with: She can not speak, she can not walk, she can not feed herself. Sounds bad enough but to go a little deeper and paint the picture a little clearer- Not only can she not feed herself this syndrome also makes it so it is difficult to swallow so everytime she does eat or drink it is followed by a long stressful series of coughing/choking making it so she does not even WANT to eat or drink. She can not use the restroom-she must be lifted by my father and placed everytime. All DIGNITY GONE! Every time she needs to sit up a little further -he must lift her-everytime the blanket falls below where she wants it-he fixes it. EVERY MOVE SHE WANTS TO MAKE-HE does it for her! They have been to hell and they haven't come back yet. THEY together are fighting for her life and the medical field has done NOTHING but let them down. No one has any answers and no one is willing to jump in and help. The worst part is that Terri's mind is still 100% there! She KNOWS what's going on and yet can do NOTHING. All she can do is lay there-paralyzed- and wait for this living nightmare to end! My dad is scheduled to go back from a leave of absence at his job in August. At that point there will be no one who can take care of Terri at her home. Sure they can try a nursing home-but if you had your right frame of mind and were in her situation would you want to go be taken care of by a bunch of strangers--besides the fact that they had to try that once and she was severely neglected-got bed soars and was routinely forgotten to be fed??? So here's what I'm reaching out for--HELP financially for my dad to stay home and take care of his terminally ill wife! Any amount of Money will help! If everyone just donated $5 and this spread their story around then MAYBE they could even assist in finding out more about this disease, or whatever it is, instead of the medical field looking the other way and turning their back maybe invest a little time to save other people from going through this living hell! I PROMISE you-there is NOTHING else out there this Mind-blowingly terrible!!! Terri is an amazing woman! Her massaging carrer had finally taken off affording my the two of them to get my dad's dream Harley and they and their friends would ride all over Florida--after all their hard work in life they had finally got to start enjoying life! and then BOOM--in the blink of en eye it was all takin away! Please help me spread the word of their story and help me help my dad!!!
