THE STORY:

I was working hard labor for five years doing lumberjacking,flipping houses such as drywall,ceramic tile,wood floors, paintlandscaping,carpet,cabinets,etc.all to renovate a house from gutting it out to remodeling to new.gardening I was rolling a large tree to split and cut and stack.my neighbor came over and told me "your an ox" but please be careful cuz your gonna have a stroke.low and behold I was doing a side job for a friend retrieving golf balls from a pond at the course and I just fell out of the golf cart.I tried to get up 3 times and kept falling back.my boss said " I think your having a stroke.he called the ambulance and ems said yes you had a stroke.I was transported to 31st.John Detroit main.I spent 7 days there and then was transferred to a nursing home for 30 days.I went home and had in home therapy and was working hard to gain mobility to my left side because I was left disabled (paralyzed) on my left side.the surgeon said a chip of calcium deposit broke off of my aortic mechanical valve and damaged my brain cells badly.I was told I could be like this for life.anyway I was doing good at in home therapy and then I slipped on water in the kitchen and shattered my left arm.go figure.therefore my therapy regressed.I've been researching stem cell studies and found ucsf in San Francisco.it took them two years to find me a site for a screening in Ohio.I'm in Mich. And it's a 4 hr. Drive.I went for the screening and failed the occupational part of the exam.I couldn't move my thumb up or lift my left toes up high enough.I'm now waiting for my insurance to approve extensive therapy for my left arm hand and foot for 30 days.I then will go back to Ohio to do the test again.my brain surgeon thinks the stem cell brain surgery is veryhopeful for me.if I don't pass this test then I get excluded from the trial.I researched gordie bowed story And he went to Mexico and got stem cell surgery and was cured in 8 hours.he couldn't walk or talk or do anything from the same stroke I had.he pd.37,000.00 cash for the surgery.2 weeks later he was playing hockey in the streets with his grandkids.I met a guy in outpatient therapy that had the brain surgery and he said he moved his hands in 3 days and was all better in 3 months with therapy.he gave me hope.if I fail this 2nd time in Ohio then I have to come up with money for travel surgery and lodging.for myself and a friend or family member to go with me for support.at Stanford institute 18 out of 18 patients were 100% sucessful in 2 months with the stem cells in the brain.I do as much as I can with my right arm and hand but it is very difficult and very depressing.I pray 24/7for God to heal me.I'm very optimistic that people will contribute and donate to my fund so I can get my life back.I'm on disability and my goal is to get back to work which I love my jobs and that I will be able to hold my grandson that's on the way to help my son and daughter in law with babysitting the newborn and 3 yr. Old so they can work.I pray and dream for this surgery to happen.please help me raise the funds so I can get my life back.I had my stroke at r8 yrs. Old.I'm 50 now.the hardest thing is looking at a picture of my son crying over my lifeless body at the hospital the day of my stroke.thank you for listening.in Jesus's name AMEN.God bless everyone and our troops.
