As many of you know, my sweet mother Marla Hodges has been battling the devastating disease of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) for nearly 20 years. She has been a lifelong resident of Springfield, Missouri and grew up in Crane, Missouri. Her sense of humor and fight has made this terrible disease seem like it isn’t nearly as devastating as it is but her quality of life has been drastically altered. Recently, Marla has found new research and treatment in Florida for Stem Cell Therapy. After her own research, and the testimonies of others with MS, she and her family have decided this is what she needs. This is her chance to be able to walk or even function at higher level again. Unfortunately, the cost of transplant can be overwhelming and she needs your support.

The past few years has become more challenging as her disease progresses. The cost of this possible life changing procedure plus transplant care is well beyond what she can afford out of pocket. Costs include the Stem Cell Therapy and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for 5 days and all travel and accommodations while in Florida.

Mom's foot is healing well. She will see the doctor the end of August and will hopefully be able to start putting weight on it. We ask for prayers that her muscles haven't atrophied much and she will have the strength to stand! We are still hoping to still be able to raise enough money that we could get the treatment this fall! Please check out her Facebook page for any addition fundraising!
