The family and friends of Patty Thompson will be losing weight to raise money for her medical bills..Please show your support and God bless!

Hey my name is Shannon Loudermilk but everyone calls me "Syko". This might look like a jumbled mess but I will do the best i can. I just turned 30 yesterday (Mar 29) and last yr I found out that I have a spinal disease with no cure. I have had tons and tons of test and medication and nothing has helped. Doctors say I only have about 8 yrs left before i will be stuck in a wheelchair. I am married with 3 kids and I love my life. My dream was to become an MMA fighter but now my dream is to just be able to walk my daughter down the isle. Since I can barely walk and all I do is eat since I'm at home all day with my kids, I have gained sooooo much weight that I know that its causing me more pain. but this fundraiser isn't even about me. I have started this campaign to help a lady that really I have never meet but I keep feeling God pushing me and pushing me to do something. So on April the 2nd I will be starting my weight lose journey to help raise money for Patty Thompson and her husband Billy. Patty has a very serious Kidney disease that is threatening her life. My wife is a waitress and Patty and Billy eat in her section. One day my wife came home from work and was just so tore up. She told me that some customers that have eaten in her section forever came in and she noticed that Patty looked like she wasn't feeling good so my wife ask her if she is ok and they told her the news. My wife, the wonderful, caring woman she is said that she is going in the morning to get her blood taken so she can see if she is a match to be a donor. I didn't even question her, I am behind my wife 100% on all her decisions. Come to find out, she is a match, so they sent us to Charleston to do a bunch of test and now we are just waiting for the doctors to call us to tell us what to do next. I know that Patty is going through a tough journey and I don't want her to feel like she is having to fight this alone so that's why I'm losing weight to help her. It may sound dumb to some people but losing weight for me is not easy at all and to be honest I'm pretty scared because I already know the pain I am going to be going through. I am asking that you help us make their lives a little bit easier because they are going through enough as it is. $5000 probably wont even begin to put a dent in their medical bills but I'm sure is will be a blessing anyway...Thank you so much everyone for all your prayers and support...God Bless!
