This is the Cindy Fleury Chenier Stroke Fund. Please donate to assist with medical/daily living expenses to alleviate the financial burden.

Cindy Fleury Chenier was rushed to the hospital because she was very lethargic, weak, severe migraine and a few other symptoms. The hospital kept her overnight and ran a number of tests; they found that she had suffered a stroke that they attributed to a condition called PFO, as the doctor explained in laymen's terms is a condition where you have a hole in your heart. A couple of years back the doctors found a blood clot in her lung, but did not detect the hole in her heart, this time the neurosurgeon thankfully found this and has determined that she will need surgery to close this so that it does not happen again. The doctors want to wait a couple of months though so that her body can heal from the trauma it has been through from the stroke.

Although she is stronger, Cindy is recovering in a rehabilitation facility; she currently has trouble speaking and moving her right arm, her right leg is also weak, but she is doing daily physical and speech therapy.

Cindy does not have health insurance and we don't know what the total expenses will be - but we felt we had to get something started to alleviate the stress on Cindy and her family so that she can focus all of her energy and strength on recovery! The money donated will be used to pay for medical expenses and to help with daily living expenses that are vast.

Cindy’s family have been by her side since this occurred, but for now she is not accepting visitors, we will let you know when that changes.

The family has set up a savings account with Chase bank for those that would like to mail contributions to Cindy's medical costs; otherwise, you can contribute using this site!

Your prayers and contributions are greatly appreciated!
