This is a fundraiser to assist me in obtaining the funds needed for spinal surgery.

I am a sister, mother, grandmother and friend with Crohn's Disease, Cervical Dystonia, Diabetes, and chronic spinal problems. I had spinal fusion at C5/C6/C7 in 2000 due to 2 badly herniated discs.

I've developed spinal stenosis, herniated discs and other issues from C3 to T1 but we can't afford the $3,450.00 pre-payments required for the myelogram or the approximate $9,000.00 for the surgery due to very high deductible medical insurance.

Currently I am unable to work due to my multiple medical conditions and my spinal problems leave me in constant pain and unable to function despite excellent pain control by my neurologist but the medications have their own side effects and don't address symptoms like muscle spasms and numbness in my hands.
