  • Benefit for a friend who is now paralyzed

    She is one of our own, and a good friend...

    In June a disc in Desiree's neck burst/broke sending a small part of the bone to lodge in her spinal column. This caused her to become paralyzed from the chest down. After enduring emergency surgery she spent the next 7 weeks in the hospital. She was sent home to continue her recovery and rehabilitation. After running 5 marathons, 2 ultras, competing in 6 figure contests to becoming a quadriplegic is tough for her to swallow. Not to mention the battles with insurance, home alterations and vehicle modifications.
    ....she has a long road ahead of her.

    We are hosting a benefit at the American Legion on Legionnaire Drive (off Rt. 31) in Cicero on Sunday, September 23, 2012 from 1 - 6 pm to help raise money for her deductibles, medical bills, (Currently over $18,000), yearly medical/prescription costs, needed equipment, home and auto modifications and more. We are requesting a $10 door donation. In return there will be lots of great food, beer, wine, soda, raffles, a 50/50, possible silent auctions and live music. (The band BANKRUPT ROAD will play and other bands will be announced soon.)

    You can make donations here: http://www.giveforward.com/donatetodesiree
    Or contact us if you'd like to help.

    Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a pristine, well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, used up, worn out, and shouting, "Holy #$&^%$^... What a ride!!!"

          Thanks guys. We go see her almost everyday and her positive attitude is nothing short of admirable.
          Redskull, I told my wife of your offer so she may be contacting you in the near future for a t-shirt design if they choose to make shirts.

              No, she had a sore neck/upper back for a couple weeks but that was all that was bothering her. The rupture occured when she was simply standing up out of a chair.

                Damn bizarre...

                Do you know what the ASIA (American Spinal Injury Assoc.) rating of her injury is, i.e., complete SCI, incomplete? (Can she move her feet, total paralysis, etc.)

                  She cannot move or feel anything from the chest down as well as limited use of her left hand. Right hand has recovered well. They replaced the disc with a cadaver disc, but now only time will tell.
