My daughter is such a kind and loving person and one of the best moms any kid could have. She would try to help anyone. Please help her.

My daughter Tanisha, mother of two, suffered 2 major strokes at the age of 34 which left her with left side paralysis. Because of medical insurance which is state paid, she was given very inadequate care. After 3 weeks of therapy she was left to fend for herself and the family to take care of her. She can't walk, can only use one hand, can't sit up without support, is incontinent, and must be assisted in all aspects of daily living.

She was a vibrant, self-sufficient young woman with her whole life ahead of her. Now she is totally dependent on others for survival. She is a very dedicated mom and even now she is struggling to be a good mom to her kids. She has been thru so much, yet she never gives up on the hope that she will walk again.

Recently, there has been a new breakthrough treatment for stroke victims that have suffered paralysis as a result of strokes. I took her to a renowned hospital that specializes in stroke treatment. She was evaluated for the treatment and she is a good candidate. She was so excited about the treatments, but she knows that we can't afford it. The treatments are injections that will reverse the neurologic effects caused by the strokes. The treatments will improve her motor skills, hand function, sensory deficits, speech, thinking ability and behavior, allowing her more normalcy in life. She has a great chance of gaining use of her arm again. Because of her youth, it may even reverse the effects enough for her to eventually walk again. It will eliminate her agonizing pain caused by the stroke. This treatment will greatly improve her quality of life.

Her medical insurance will not pay for it and the cost is around $10,000 for two treatments. My family and I are trying very hard to give her this treatment, but we need help. Anything that you find in your heart to give will be so deeply appreciated. Even if we don't reach the goal, any help that you give us will be a blessing and ease the burden of raising the funds for her treatment. God bless and take care of you and your loved ones.
