MANDY HAS A WONDERFUL SOUL AND NEVER HESITATED TO HELP ANYONE. 

THE MASSIVE STROKE SHE HAD, AFFECTED HER ABILITY TO SPEAK, AND MOVE HER RIGHT SIDE.

  HER FAMILY, WHO SHE LOVES DEARLY,  IS 3000 MILES AWAY AND ARE VERY LIMITED IN FUNDS TO COME AND VISIT HER OFTEN

DUE TO  HER LONG RECOVERY, HER EBAY STORE HAD TO BE SHUT

DOWN,  SHE CAN'T WORK,  SHE HAS TO MOVE HER BELONGINGS

FROM HER APT INTO STORAGE. AFTER SHE WAS ADMITTED TO

THE STROKE CENTER + STAYED THERE FOR A FEW WEEKS,

DOCTORS COULD NOT OPERATE TO STOP BLEEDING IN HER HEAD, THEY WAITED TO SEE IF THE MEDICATION WOULD HELP.  

THE NEXT STEP WAS REHAB AND HER LA CARE WAS LIMITED AND

NO REHAB CENTER, ESPECIALLY FOR STROKE PATIENTS, WOULD

ACCEPT HER  DUE TO HER MINIMUM INSURANCE..SO THE

HOSPITAL TOLD FAMILY MEMBERS THEY REALLY HAD NO CHOICE

THAT ONLY 1 REHAB CENTER WOULD TAKE HER BUT WAS NOT

FOR STROKE PATIENTS ONLY..

AFTER MANDY WAS MOVED TO THIS REHAB CENTER,  I VISITED

HER AND IT WAS TOTAL CHAOS IN THERE..THE REHAB IS FOR

ANYONE , DRUGS, PSYCHOLOGICAL ETC..

.IN HER STATE OF MIND, NOT BEING ABLE TO SPEAK, MANDY WAS

CRYING, WITH ALL THE NOISE AND COMMOTION AROUND HER

AND OTHER PATIENTS SCREAMING!!!  STROKE PATIENTS NEED

CALMNESS  + STABILITY AND AS MANY FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO

GIVE THEM SUPPORT

MANDY CAN'T EVEN ASK FOR WATER DUE TO HER LOSS OF

SPEECH AND OF COURSE, SHE CAN'T WALK TO GO TO THE

WASHROOM  ( THEY HAVE TO CHANGE HER DIAPERS  MANY

TIMES THROUGHOUT THE DAY) .

MANDY DOES NOT HAVE MANY FRIEND HERE IN LA AND ALL HER

LOVING FAMILY IS IN FLORIDA.   THE SOCIAL DEPT CAN'T UPGRADE

HER LA CARE SO SHE COULD GO TO A BETTER FACILITY.. 

PLEASE HELP DONATE SO THE FUNDS CAN BE USED FOR HER

RECOVERY.. PHYSICAL THERAPY  ( $40 PER HOUR - 5 TIMES A WEEK)  SPEECH THERAPY  ($40 PER HOUR - 5 TIMES A WEEK)

MEDICATIONS  FOR PAIN IN ARM -LEG- STOMACH  I CAN'T EVEN THINK OF HOW MUCH THAT WOULD COST

DECENT REHAB WITHOUT INSURANCE - APPROX. $1500 TO $2000 MONTH

SHE CANNOT BE ABLE TO FLY TO BE WITH HER FAMILY

DUE TO THE AIR PRESSURE CAN RUPTURE ANOTHER VESSEL IN

HER BRAIN. 

IF FUNDING CAN BE GRANTED AND REACHED, ALONG THE WAY,

WE  COULD MAYBE SEND HER BY TRAIN TO BE WITH HER FAMILY

(WITH A NURSE).  STROKE RECOVERY PATIENTS NEED FAMILY AND

FRIENDS AROUND HER .  OF COURSE, HER PUPPY AYOKI WOULD

GO ALONG WITH HER 

THE FUNDS WILL BE USED FOR THE COMPLETE RECOVERY,

MEDICATION, TRANSPORT AND ANY NEEDS THAT MAY BE APPLIED

PLEASE HELP AND SHARE WITH AS MANY PEOPLE THAT YOU

KNOW

THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS EVERYONE WHO HAS TRUE, SINCERE

NEEDS
