I’m raising money for my father after he was paralyzed neck down from a stroke occurring during surgery. My father will need special home medical equipment,therapy,a vehicle wheelchair lift, and much more.
Hi I’m Ashley and I started this fundraiser for my father after he went in to have surgery to remove a clot from his basilar artery which is an important blood vessel in the brainstem. Unfortunately during the surgery he suffered a massive stroke that damaged his brainstem. This left him with what they call “Locked In Syndrome”. Something that I can only imagine being absolutely terrifying! He’s completely conscious and all there in the head, he can hear, can see and blink but cannot move at all from neck down. He responds with eye blinks to yes or no questions only. This is something so unimaginable and now we are trying adjust and get the necessary things he needs to come home with his family. He’s likely to be bedridden and will require around the clock care as well as a lot of therapy. With the help from donors like you all we can give him those things and possibly even more like regaining some movement and able to communicate again through intense therapy which would be a blessing
