Hi friends! Thanks for visiting. Since receiving my stem cell transplant, I have been actively pursuing physical therapies to increase the benefits of the stem cell treatment. I was extremely excited to discover Aquatic Rehab and Counseling and have been swimming twice weekly since returning from Bangkok. However, I still have not been able to access the individualized physical therapy I need to make a difference in my circumstances and I have exhausted the resources available to me through my insurance.
Recently, I was introduced to Dr. Jack Lynn of Time Defiance Fitness, who has given me great hope that I can make a difference in my own physical well-being. Dr. Lynn has helped many individuals with various causes of neurological deficit and he believes that with physical therapy I can significantly improve. His neurological testing indicates potential for me to regain enough muscle strength that I could, once again, regain my independence.
Unfortunately, my limited income does not allow me to afford this therapy on my own and it is not covered by my insurance. With the help of friends and family, I am hoping to raise an additional $25,000 to allow me the opportunity to work with Dr. Lynn. I am determined to do the necessary hard work and follow Dr. Lynn’s detailed plan to once again achieve the kind of independence that will change my life and make it so much more fulfilling.
With much love and gratitude for all the support and encouragement,
