HELP US SAVE OUR MOTHER’S LIFE!
ANIMAL & CHILD/ADULT ADVOCATE, PATTI MANSFIELD, NEEDS STEM CELL TREATMENT.
We’d like to ask for your help for a lady who has been a very important part of our life – our mother. Our mother has helped people and animals all of her life. She has been a child advocate, battered women advocate, mentored adults and a very active animal advocate and rescuer for as long as we can remember. She has saved many human and animal lives for the most part of her life. She has done just about everything that you can imagine, and as she says "I go where God leads me and do what He tells me". We can’t even begin to name it all.
And now, SHE needs some help . She has suffered for many, many years from a very debilitating illness – COPD (which covers many lung diseases of which there is no cure). She is at the point where she can no longer do daily chores, she had to stop working quite a few years ago, she can’t walk all of her rescued dogs, she can’t rescue any more animals, she is having to spend less and less time in the computer rescuing animals. She rarely gets to see her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and friends due to catching germs from others, she rarely goes out at all and when she gets sick, it takes her ten times longer to get well and we deal with the chance that she will not get well. We play Russian roulette on a daily basis. Her illness has been a long haul for her and she has always had a positive attitude and has never given up. Her saying has always been like Nike – “JUST DO IT”! But, sadly – she cannot do much of “it” anymore.
We have now found a way
of slowing down the progression and possibly giving her more time and a better quality of life.
We would like to send her to the Lung Institute in Nashville, TN for stem cell treatments. This will give her an opportunity to possibly breathe a bit easier, do some fun things for a change and live a few years longer. She has spent many years battling this illness and been a virtual prisoner in her home but, due to her positive outlook on life, it has given her the gift of rescuing animals via internet; however, she’s even having trouble doing that now.
This is not a sanctioned FDA approved treatment, so, naturally, insurance doesn’t cover and no other agencies help. But we know this is one that has helped many and we believe it can help her; however, it is very expensive and so we have decided to reach out to our friends, neighbors and all social media to try to gather whatever funds we can, to send her for her treatment. And, this is only one of the treatments that she may need. The initial treatment is $12,000 and after that, there will probably be boosters and any monies will be used only for these treatments. We know stem cell treatment is in its trial stage, but no one ever heard of triple/quadruple bypass years ago or hip replacement and this is the incredible next generation of medicine of growing your own healing. It must be working because this institute, in particular, is opening its 4 th clinic very shortly. There are many research trials out there and they are experimenting on many illnesses with stem cells but this Institute puts all their focus on the lungs only.
We are asking for you to give from your heart whatever amount you can afford – no amount is too small because every dollar adds up to “dollars”. And every single dollar donated will go only toward her treatments.
We thank each and every person who gives from their heart to help our mother breathe a little easier.
God bless each and every one who contributes and/or shares because we all know that sharing is caring.
Donations can be made to our mother’s Paypal since she is the patient by clicking the "donate now" button above and pls. indicate STEM CELL on your donation.
God’s Blessings from - Patti’s children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, family, friends and all those souls saved along the way.
