From Betty Fulmer

I am trying to raise money for medical help and dental help. Both things are going to cost me thousands of dollars. My insurance does not cover any of the cost that I am trying to raise money for.

Update #26

I am still trying to raise enough money to get the Stem Cells. I have seen a lot of people that have been cured by receiving the Ste Cells. I so want to be one of them. I have suffered for 43 years now from the disease that all the radiation treatment has left me with. I am in a lot of pain and the nerves in my back and legs are dying at an alarming rate. It is very important that I get the Stem Cells before it's to late. If anyone can find it in your heart to help me I will be forever grateful. Thank You for your help and for listing to me.

More Info

41 years ago, I was told I had cervical cancer. I was given way too much radiation. Because of the radiation I was totally disabled. I have been through 30 surgeries and numerous hospital stays to try and repair the damage from the radiation. I have lived with horrible pain in my lower back. Now I am losing my ability to walk, I have lost my balance, all of this because I was over radiated. The sad thing is after all this was done to me I was sent to UCLA to try and save my life. When I got there for my exam I was told that I didn't need any radiation at all. So, all of this was done to me for no reason. I have lived with a 41-year nightmare and it will continue until I die. I have found that if I can get the money to have Stem Cells I can get better. The Stem Cells will help repair the damage in my back as well as help me get my balance back. These are just some of the reasons I really need help. I will be free of pain and able to walk better. My insurance will not pay for any of the treatment so I must pay cash. Thank you in advance for any help you can give.

Update #25

I am still trying to raise the money to get the Stem Cells to repair the damage to my back. For those of you who don't know what happened to me I will share with you now. I was given radiation for cervical cancer 41 years age. I was given so much radiation that it completely destroyed my lower spine. That has left me with constant pain. I have lived on pain killers ever since. I would really like to be free of them. My research has led me to the Stem Cells.. This treatment has only became available in the past few years, but it cost a lot of money and no insurance companies will pay for it. I have to raise the money on my own. That is more money than I alone can come up with. That is why I am reaching out to you for help.Two years after the Doctors gave all the radiation I was sent to UCLA to save my life as I was surely going to die I was told by the Doctors there that I didn't need radiation at all. They said they did not radiate for the type of cancer I had. So I realized at that point that the Doctors were using me to experiment on. I guess they wanted to see how far they could go. I am sure you are asking why didn't I sue them. Will I did try but in the state of California you only have two years to sue for malpractice so it was to late for me. I have spent the last 41 years fighting to stay alive. Now with the Stem Cells I actually have a chance to live a better life.
I thank you for what ever you can do to help.

Update #23

I have been having some serious problems lately. This past week I have fallen 6 times. It was just my left ankle that was weak. When I would be walking my left ankle would suddenly role over and I would fall. Well now my right foot is doing the same thing. I have so many nerves dying in my legs that I have no control of my feet and ankles. They are so weak that it is very hard to walk. So my doctor ordered ankle braces. They do help me to walk better but it doesn't help with no feeling in my feet or legs. I guess I should be in a wheel chair all the time now, but I will not give onto the wheel chair. I am afraid if I begin to use a wheel chair I will never get out of it. I try really hard to stay up beat and positive and spend as much time as I can helping others. I spend a lot of time making baby afghans for the women's center and also for great grandchildren when ever I have any. I find when you help others it makes your problems not seem so bad.
Well thank you for listening today. I send all of you my love and prayers.

Update #22

I think I am doing better with the ulcer on the bottom of my foot. It was caused because of the cellulitis that flared up on me a few weeks ago. I landed in the hospital for 4 days on IV antibiotics. Then they sent me home with the IV still in. The nurses came to my house and trained my son Jake on how to inject the medicine here at home. That went on for 9 more days. The antibiotics completely mess my whole system up and I get really sick from them. I am getting better now but I now have to go to the wound care clinic every week for the Doctor to check how I am healing. They put me in this boot that I have to wear. It is very hard with no balance to walk. The darn thing is very heavy. I am still trying to raise enough money to get the stem cells. So far that is the only thing that will help me. I am not getting very far with my campaign but I haven't lost faith yet. If I keep my faith and stay positive and try to help other people every day then I know that Heavenly Father will help me find a way. I want to thank those that have helped me. I send you my love and prayers. Thank you!!!

Update #21

I have decided to launch this campaign once again. I am hoping I will receive the help I need to get the stem cells that I need to heal my body from all the damage that was done to me from the radiation. I also need extensive dental work . The work that I need is not covered by my insurance. So just like the stem cells I need to come up with the cash to pay for it. The bone in my lower jaw disintegrated to the point that I can't wear dentures. The only way is to have implants or go through numerous surgeries to do bone grafts. There is no guarantee that the bone grafts will even work. So with both things that I need money for it is a lot of money that I do not have. I really do need help if I am going to have any quality of life at all. I have suffered on my own for so long I just did not know where to turn. Then I learned of the Fund raisers. So I thought that I would try. If you can help me then I want to say Thank you in advance.

I have decided to start this fund raiser again. I still need to raise the money to be able to pay for the Stem Cells. I know if I can receive them I can live a better quality of life. That would be such a blessing as I have suffered for 40 years now. Everyday fighting to live and hang in there long enough to receive the help I need. For those that have helped to this point I say thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Update #18

I thought it being Christmas that maybe some one would have a little charity in their heart and help me to meet my goal toward getting the money for the Stem Cells. I am so afraid if I don't get them very soon that it will be to late. My body is deteriorates by the day. I am sure the sooner I can get the treatment the better. My fundraiser will end on December 31, 2015. So I don't have much time left. I am grateful for what ever anyone does. I thank you for your prayers and I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas.

i HOPE EVERYONE WILL BE HAVING A WONDERFUL THANKSGIVING. This is a wonderful time of year. Christmas will be here soon and I hope and oray there will be someone that will be willing to help me get the money to be able to receive the Stem Cell treatment I need. It would be a true blessing to start the new year free of pain and with better balance. With those two things I would be able to walk and be far more independent. That would give em the power to take care of myself. That would be the greatest Christmas gift I could ever receive. 40 years is a long time to suffer. At any rate thanks for what ever help you can give and have a very Merry Christmas even if you can't give any thing just keep me in your prayers. If nothing else that will help for sure. Thanks to all of you.

Update #15

I have 3 days left on this fundraiser and I have had 500 people view my page. I would have thought out of that many I could have had more help. I really do not understand why I didn't receive more help. I can't really do much about it .
My fund raiser will be canceled in three days. Unfortunately I did not receive enough money to even be able to get the Blood Plaitlets and no where near enough for the stem cells. I tried with all my heart but the help just did not come.

Update #14

I have had a lot of people checking my fund raising site but no one is willing to donate. I really do not understand why. I really need help. My health is going down hill by the day. My balance is getting worse. When I am trying to cook my balance is so bad that I am constantly falling onto the stove. My stove is gas and every time I fall into the stove I turn the burners on. I can't believe I haven't been burned yet. My health is getting worse by the day. The pain grows worse by the day. I just had a Cat Scan and it shows that there is a lot of scar tissue in my lower body and the only to fix that is surgery. My pain doctor tells me that the Stem Cells is the only answer for me to get any relief and help with the pain I am in. I keep praying that I can get the money to pay for them. It would be wonderful to have some relief of this pain. 40 years is a long time to suffer. The only reason I am not dead from all this, is because of my strong will and my desire to live. I just refuse to die. Thank you for all those that have helped me.

Update #12

My mother, Betty Fulmer, has suffered more than anyone I know. She is currently dealing with extensive medical issues with one of the most difficult being her advancing inability to walk. Our family's ability to help her with the cost for the treatments that will give her ability to keeping walking for many more years is limited. We would like her to maintain her autonomy as long as possible and we believe these treatments are an answer to our prayers. We appreciate anyone's assistance and recognize your sacrifices. Thank you for your generosity.

Update #11

Thought I would give you an update on how things are going. I have not been doing very well this past week. I spent labor day weekend on the couch sick to my stomach. I don't know what was wrong, it felt like I had the flu. It gets very tiring being sick all the time. I grow very tired and discouraged at times from being so sick. The pain really gets me down as well. I work very hard at staying positive and as up beat as I can. I want so bad to write my story in hopes that someone can get help from what happened to me. I do not want all I have been through to be in vane. If I can't help others by whats happened to me then it is in vane. I need to have the money to hire someone to help me write a book and get my story out there.
It will be wonderful to be able to take care of myself and release my son to be free to live his own life and not have to take care of me. That would be the best blessing I could have. These two things are the best thing that could happened to me. It all hinges on me receiving the stem cell treatment. Pray for me and I thank you for what ever help you can give.

Update #10

Just a note to let you all know I am still here. I only have 52 days left on my fundraiser. If I can't raise enough money to receive the stem cells by then. I think I will chalk it up to I tried. I just want so much to see if I can help someone else by telling my story. I just know one thing it is hard to sit and try to write when I am in so much pain. I see the days go by and my son just gets older and he needs to have his own life so bad. He has given up so much to stay here and take care of me. I know if I could get the stem cells I would be able to take care of myself and he could have his own life. I would love to see him get married and have his own family. As long as I am in the shape I am in right now he will not leave. Please help

Update #9

I want to keep everyone up dated on my progress. I had the service tech come to talk with me about getting a new scooter. He claims that I am to disabled for my insurance to pay for it. So I will have to raise the money to pay for it myself. I realize that I am extremely disabled. I have some very goals that I would like to do with the money I raise with this fund raiser.First of all I would like to relieve my son from having to take care of me. He has been so kind and wonderful to give up his whole life to live here with me. I would love to see him have his own life and be able to find a nice young women and get married. That could happen if he could be free of my care. With the stem cells I would be able to live alone and care for myself. I would also like to write my story. I want people to know what has happened to me in hopes that it could help other people. I feel if my story is told it could help others through their treatment and help them to know how to live through it. Right now my pain is so bad I can't always think well enough to write all that has happened to me.down. My goal is to write a book and I am bound and determined to get it written. I just have to get free of this pain. Thank for listening and helping.

Update #8

I am still a long way off from receiving the money I need for the stem cells. I need them so badly that it's hard to wait. I just want to be free from this pain that I have suffered with for 40 years. I know that is a long time but I just refuse to give up. I know that some way some how I will get enough money to receive the treatment. I have been through many surgeries to try to repair the damage from the radiation, but still I am left with the pain. I just can't give up now when I have found the very treatment I need. Please try to help me. Thank you anyway.

Update #7

My pain has been getting worse lately. I tried to get a scooter and was told that I am to disabled to qualify for the insurance to pay for any of it. I really need one so I guess I will have to come up with the money to buy it. They cost approx. $3000.00. I will have to add it to my fund raiser. I am hoping to raise the money soon. I really need those stem cells. Thank you for your help.
