The family of Mark Pauda Sr. are uniting to help raise money needed for his physical therapy after his stroke. Thank you for your support!

On March 30th, 2011 around 2:30 pm Mark Pauda had a blood vessel rupture causing bleeding in the brain that caused him to have a stroke. He was immediately taken to Bob Wilson Hospital in Ulysses, KS who was treated and stabilized before being life watched to Wichita, KS. He has been at Wesley Medical Center in MICU for 12 days and was just recently moved to a regular room at the hospital. We have already had to pay out for hotel expenses which the hotel is right across the street from the hospital and that has been very convenient but expensive and not to mention the food expenses as well.

Our biggest challenge we are facing right now is finding a rehab center that will accept Mark to be able to get the physical therapy that he needs. He is partially paralyzed on his right side, his leg, arm and speech has been affected by the stroke. Physical therapy has been coming in to work with him and he has been able to move his right leg and arm but with limitations and his speech still needs lots of work. The hospital has been trying to find a rehab center that will accept him because he DOES NOT have medical insurance. In order for Mark to get back to or as close as what we hope will be 100% he needs to be placed in a rehab that will work with him every day of the week 6-8 hours a day. Our hopes for him to get that treatment are coming to an end if we can’t get help for him fairly soon. They did find a rehab center in Dodge City, KS which will be closer to home but they are asking us to pay $1000.00 a day or just return home without any therapy.

We are asking for any kind of assistance and would greatly appreciate any help.

Thank you,
