The family and friends of Shannon Neece are uniting to raise funds to help with her medical cost & travel expenses not covered by insurance

Shannon has Degenerative Arthritis,Suppresed Immune System and TMJ. She had a partial joint replacement done in 2008 and in March 2011 found out that the prosthetic had broken apart and the FDA was already looking into recalling it. In July 2011 Shannon had surgery to remove the broken prosthetic and clean out the area. She is scheduled for surgery Dec 22nd at the University of Minnesota for a Total Joint Replacement, Upper surgery with surgical splints. She has been unable to work full time since July and her employer reduced her status to less then part time in October which made her ineligable for benefits and she has been having to COBRA her health insurance. The health insurance plan she has is a high deductible plan so she is repsonsible to meet the deductible again 1/1/2012 before insurance pays anything and even then it has a lifetime max of $10,000 lifetime max on surgical TMJ procedures.

Shannon and her husband Mike live in Fargo and have 2 children, Ethan 13 and Jenna 10.
Surgery is scheduled for Dec 22nd at the Univeristy of Minnesota so she will be in Minneapolis away from her family over the holidays. We also found out last week that Shannon is also having Back Surgery as soon as she is able to be intubated orally, hopefully Feb.

Anything you can give is much appreciated by Shannon and her family.
