Once a Successful Bodybuilder, now in risk to lose his Feet and Hands, please help my Dad...such a good man, such a good dad.
In my heart, right there like a rock, there is my Superdad, all the time. I remember him playing Superman for me, he would put on his ocean blue shirt and comb a perfect curl on his forehead woow…Superman was here!, then he’d put me on his shoulders and make me fly from there, it was such an awesome incredible experience, such a feeling… I felt as if I were on a building, on the top of the world, and my dad was Superman, he used to talk to me about God, to go to Him, to feel ad act good, to pray and be faithful, my dad is such an amazing man very wise, strong and muscular, sensitive and tender, everything in him would give me security and I built my space in his space, I knew his smelling very well, his touch, his great amazing strength, his laugh, his knowledge, he seems to know it all!!, and always transmitted revealing valuable lessons to me with ease, that is my dad as I always remember him, now he is under so much pain and can hardly walk, he’s got this rheum disease "Vasculitis Mononeuritis Multiplex with Collagenopathy", a very painful and uncommon autoimmune disease, very aggressive, which makes him lose his strength in time, decreasing skin sensitivity and destroying his nerves in an unpredictable way, it is particularly aggressive in his feet and hands.
How does this condition evolve inside my dad’s body, what does it do? This condition closes his blood vessels, causing internal inflammation of the muscle and skin tissues, his blood circulation is getting progressively closed and that is what is killing his feet and hands, with these terrible wounds that started to appear as an indicator of the damage, if not treated properly this condition will kill his tissues and doctors will have to amputate his foot in a time that is uncertain but the case is one of this mornings this rheum could get triggered to a more severe level, we do not want this to happen to such a good dad and man.
How does my dad feel with this? My dear dad says: “..it is as if I were touching electricity all the time… hurts like many pins under my skin, sometimes the pain is incredible…but I know God is good and will help me...”, that’s an explanation of what he experiences and the attitude he has: "…sometimes all the pins just turn into a knife under my skin...” I pray with him many times a day then, and I give him his tramadol doses when pain attacks more. He is under a special treatment I am paying in a daily basis, but it is not enough, a great amount of money is needed to put him under a very expensive special experimental treatment and physical therapy, which will last many months to start seeing results. This treatment is so way beyond my possibilities I need to start this fundraiser campaign, I just cannot afford it, the good news is: I have been advised to start it asap as it can actually save my dad’s hands and feet and give him a decent life, as this experimental treatment can stop the rheum and reverse some of the damages in his nerve system granting him a quality of life again to do some things by himself again, he enjoys: running, reading, writing and crosswords, if only he could do these activities again it would mean the world to him! He has been such an active man all of his life, now he can hardly do anything, he depends on the nurse, and despite his positivism he is suffering from depression due to the fact that his life has changed dramatically making him so dependant on me, my mom and on the nurse, the sad side is, he is under true risk of losing his right foot, which shows the most severe damage, then the left one, and if this aggressive disease does not stop, his hands are next, and only God knows what, I am not putting any specific amount as every little cent will serve, please help us to reach this sum of US $65000 in two years to help us cover the expenses, we need $2500 monthly with the GUARANTEE this treatment will save and recover much of my dad's life and functions, just please touch your heart and share what you can, at least something to the life of this great hero, my loving dad who has done so much good for his family, wife and friends, for his neighbors and for everybody who would come to him in a hard situation or condition, he never let anybody go without a bit of help and love, please help my dad, if you are not able to donate please help spread this campaign, and raise awareness.
The money will be used for the related expenses:
- Experimental Treatment expenses.
- More Specialized Physical Rehabilitation,
