THE STORY:

Hello, We are a disabled couple Danny and Phyllis Whitehead Danny is 55years and phyllis is 53. We are asking for donations to get a gas, copays and food, lodging needed for surgerys, treatments and DR's, Hospitals. It's the collaborative effort of a powerful community of people linking arms to support one of our own, It's true that there's a strength in numbers and together we can rally to embrace our family as we embark on this challenging life-changing journey. I am disabled and my husband was a truck driver and worked hard hours and we had a good income then we had a 2011 truck and 2006 colbalt. Danny hurt his back and surgery. We thought he would be back to work, Danny's back went out again unfortunately this stopped his work for him and needs another surgery with rods and screws at this time we have not scheduled it we have to drive 200 miles. During this we lost our truck first, then the car among other things. We mange to keep our home. It was hard. Danny took a heart attack had 2 stents, blockages, a diabetic, high blood pressure,depression, skin cancers just had 32 removed April 8th 2016. Couple years ago they removed 18 cancers. Danny is to go in a few weeks to have two cancers cut out one under his eye and back, on June 7 th 2016. He's in second stage kindey failure. My health a diabetic, heart trouble and fibromyalgia, back trouble, have blockages left leg 100% and right leg 50% done a Cath but viens were to small. They put 2 stents in heart, blew right arm vein no pulse now. Make things worse I woke up! I couldn't see. Went to eye Dr he sent me to the Hospital for MRI kept me over night.

Bursitis, back trouble, carpel tunnel syndrome in left arm, got compression at elbow top and bottom, cataracts on both eyes, high blood pressure, leg trouble, hips, plus lot of new things. My kindney Dr said looks good, But I need you to see a cancer Dr. I was devastated. An appointment was made for May 12, 2016, I went she order test for May 19, 2016. My followup is May 26th for results. My ENT went May 10th just gave me some medicine and that was it not even a return appointment. DR's office called said I had a CT scan on the May 23rd. Follow up is May 31st. I will post updates. I already feel like a drug store I take like 32 pills and Five shots a day. Next is a foot Dr for left foot. I'm telling you, this has happen within 3 years. We weren't prepared . It took Danny a year to get Social security disablity, two years for Medicare. But god has always been their for us . Emergency has came up with Danny's back needs surgery's now or may get paralyzed. Danny's MRI report Dear Danny, We have formatted this letter to include our review of your MRI report and our preliminary determination for your candidacy for a procedure with Laser Spine Institute. Our review of your MRI report revealed the following abnormalities: Degenerative Disc Disease (click this link to learn more) Bulge/Herniation (click this link to learn more) Spinal Stenosis (click this link to learn more) Foraminal Narrowing (click this link to learn more) Facet Disease (click this link to learn more) Based on these initial findings, Laser Spine Institute considers you a potential candidate for our minimally invasive spinal procedures. However, the specific type of procedure or exact surgical recommendation can only be made after a complete physical exam is performed. At that time, your symptoms, exam findings, and diagnostic images will all be discussed in depth with one of our surgeons in order to determine the best course of action. I guess everyone was wondering about income I guess it's ok to tell some private information with you our house payment is $565 a month and we do pay utilities our income is $1,189.00 social security disabity. This will explain why we are asking for help and we pay copays at Dr and $140 sometimes more. a update,went to my kindney Dr he said my kidneys were really good but I need for you to go to a cancer Dr. I just sit there dazed and he said you promise to go.
