More Info

Denise is a devoted mother, and was an administrator at an elementary school. She embraced every moment with a smile, cherishing the memories created with her family and colleagues.

However, fate had a different plan in store for Denise. In August of 2022, she underwent back surgery and suffered significant spinal cord damages. She has been left paralyzed from the chest down, turning her world upside down. While most would have been overwhelmed by despair, Denise’s spirit remains unyielding, her determination undiminished. Despite the hurdles she faces as a quadriplegic, Denise's is passionate about regaining her independence and walking again. With unwavering resolve, Denise is embarking on a journey of healing and adaptation. She has underwent rigorous therapy, facing the pain with sheer determination.

As the days turned into months, Denise’s strength goes up and down, not only physically but also emotionally! Every donation, no matter the size, will make a difference. She has been in and out of various hospitals and rehabilitation facilities for a year now. She was forced to retire, sell her car and now her home to pay overwhelming medical bills. She yearns to be independent again and to share in life's joys with her loved ones. With a glimmer of hope in her eyes, Denise’s has set her sights on cutting-edge treatments that may offer a chance at regaining some mobility.
