Love Offerings For Lance Wiley
Organized by: Shawn Wiley
Hello, my name is Shawn and my husband's name is Lance. We have been married for a little over 20 years. About 15 years ago, Lance started to display various symptoms like headaches, dizziness, visual disturbances, nausea, numbness and tingling in his extremities, and a whole host of other problems. He started going to doctors and continued to do so for many years. He's seen 17 different doctors in many different specialties including 2 at Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville which is 3 hour drive one way from our house. He's had over 60 doctors appointments, been prescribed 33 different medications, had 3 ER visits, 25 different tests like CAT scans, MRI's, lumbar punctures, lab work, extensive ear and eye tests and still has no diagnosis. I have a 2 inch 3 ringed binder that contains only a portion of his medical records. He's a very hard worker and has been at the same job for over 28 years. He works no matter how horrible he feels because he has to. Even though we have insurance, it doesn't cover everything and over the years, we've had to take out loans to cover all of the medical expenses the insurance wouldn't cover. We are so far in debt now from these loans, he has to work even more hours just to keep our head above water and keep food on the table. My wish is that we can raise enough money to pay off these loans so he can cut back to a reasonable work week and hopefully feel better. Also, one of his doctors has suggested some treatment that they think might help but, of course, insurance doesn't cover it. If we could just get a diagnosis for him and then a treatment that will ease his pain and other symptoms, it would be wonderful. ANY amount anyone can give would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read our story and may God bless you in your giving.
