Hi there my name is Elvina Branson im 53 years old I am a mother of 4 and a grandmother of 10. I am married to my living , hard working ,caring husband Mark for 37.5 years . So I'm asking for 7000. Dollars because I'm wanting to get steam cell shots in my knees. I have arthritis in both of my knees, and they are bone to bone in both knees. They've talked about surgery, but I've seen lots of doctor's, therapist and they all said you are young still we highly recommend you try to stay away from that if you can. So for the past year. I talked to people who had it done, and doctors, and others. Found out they only can do surgery3 times in a life time. So if I live a long time 30 to 50 years only 3. Ok now they say they usely replace them every few years ,unless you reinger them. And most people do when they are young. So I've been researching and talking found a doctor to help me with pain . he's great. He dose steam cell shots, says they take your DNA and make it into a shot. Yes your own DNA. So I've been looking into it . yes this will have to be repeated but now for awhile. I will not have surgery right now on my knees I should beable to run , walk stairs, hike and camp which I love,go to music concerts, and most of all enjoy my family and friends. I can't even go very far in a car driving or riding with out stopping. My parents live 45 mins from me and I have to get out and stretch at least 1 time before's hard for me to stand a long time to cook or clean, wash dishes, take a shower. I cry a lot because last year I had 3 jobs loved them all.i had a full time one for 7years as a housekeeper in an independent living place. Where I worked not only as a house keeper I worked in the kitchen, help in the office, where ever I was needed.I loved this job . and I took on 2 other jobs part time because my husband and I want to fix up Our house, he works a full time job 8 to 12 hours a day depends. He works hard. So my knees started to bother me for 2 years I've been seeing a doctor. Then last year my knees got worse, I got to where I was calling into work a lot, I could hardly walk to the bath room without some kind of help. I couldn't take care of myself little line someone else. So took time off work hoping it would get better. Nope for worse. So I started shots didn't help enough, did therapy, didn't help much either. Took lots of pain pills , just wanted to sleep. Kept it all up for months , well finely for walking better. But can't do it long, I ened up quiting all my jobs couldn't do it any more. So my husband had to go into his retirement to help pay bills ,we for behind almost lost our house, Pluss now I have doctor bills ,test to take, and everything else now on top of the repairs we wanted to do to our house. The steam cell shots are not covered by insurance. It's been out not long . they said they've have lots of good turn out on it so far. They've done it in more then knees knecks, ECT. So I'm just wondering if anyone out there would love to help me do this so I can enjoy life again. I pray to be able to go on road trips longer then 1 hour. I want to travel and do lots of stuff in life yet.mainly play with my grandbabies. So I usely do t ask for stuff I usely help people out so this is hard for me. I had to look at it as it's not just for me it's mainly to help my living husband so he do t have to work so hard and we can do stuff together like we like to do and haven't been able to do much of because of me.
