Shanita just recently turned 33 years old and a wife and Mother of 4 children. She was diagnosed 6 weeks ago with bulging disks between her C4, C5 and C6, IT IS PUTTING TREMENDOUS PRESSURE ON HER SPINAL CORD, ANY WRONG MOVE COULD CAUSE HER TO BECOME A QUADRIPLEGIC or even death. She has now been to 6 different Doctors and they have all AGREED that she needs immediate surgery. Dr. Kenneth Petine would be able to do the surgery the week after next providing that they have a large portion of the money up front. He will do the surgery at his cost which is 21,100.00. Craig, her husband is self employed and unable to afford health insurance. Dr. Petine would like to have a large portion of the cost up front before the surgery. She is a stay at home Mother of 4 children and has been home schooling her children which range in the ages of 2 to 11. She has been told by the doctors not to do anything that could cause her to move even slightly in the wrong direction as this could cause her be become completely paralysed in all four limbs because there is 50% pressure on her spinal cord, which is also causing problems with her brain. Therefore she has been staying with a friend because she needs 24 hr around the clock help with her every day duties. I have been taking the children as much as possible and her Husband has returned home making it very hard for him to bring in income from his trucking business. Any and all donations will be greatly appreciated.
