The Story

In July 2013 Jisele had emergency surgery to rectify a ruptured herniated disc between her L5 vertebrae and her sacrum. Following the surgery she was unable to feel her legs. After spending weeks in the hospital and visiting numerous doctors the neurologists are still unable to determine if the diagnosis is Transverse Myelitis or Multiple Sclerosis. Although a diagnosis has yet to be found Jisele still needs two more surgerys in the near future.

After hospital and doctors visits the medical expenses already incurred total over $300,000. As a mother of two you can imagine the financial burden these medical bills are placing on Jisele. She needs to be focused on healing, not where the money is going to come from...

I know she has a lot of angels around the country who pray for her daily and I'm just asking that along with your prayers you make a donation, in whatever amount you can afford, to help alleviate some of this stress

Researchers have found that MS often causes more damage in the first year than in later years so getting Jisele the treatments she needs sooner rather than later is extremely important.

I love you and appreciate you all

-Jisele's Cousin, Nicole

I wanted to take a few minutes to update everyone on what is going on with Jisele. As of this past week, Jisele has incurred over $300,000 in medical bills. Thanks to the prayers of all of YOU, she has now been approved for the Gold card, which will pay for any new medical visits and/or procedures. Although we are grateful for the Gold Card, it is a bit of a challenge as the doctors are located over an hour away from where Jisele lives and the wait time to get an appointment is over a month.

Last week Jisele had an appointment with Dr. Dragan, a clinical neurophysiology specialist who works with Dr. Hutton, head of a Multiple Sclerosis (MS) clinic (accepts the gold card). My grandmother Ellen generously paid for this visit because we did not want to wait for a primary care doctor visit and then wait to be referred out and we felt that getting Jisele in for the appointment would assure her a spot in the clinic.

Apparently, Dr.Dragan feels Jisele has Transvers Myelitis (TM) and not MS and so we are somewhat confused again. Jisele was sent home with no treatment program. I hope that the visit to the primary care physician will be a bit warmer. He is the one who should be able to write prescriptions for any medication and refer her out to the specialist doctors within the Gold card network for the next two surgeries.

Jisele’s mother Shari has opened an account at Wells Fargo called “Donation account for Jisele Deering”. Anyone around the country can walk into a Wells Fargo and deposit money into this account.

Jisele is feeling very self-empowered these days and she is determined to beat whatever it is they finally determine is the diagnosis. She is no longer in a wheel chair and she is often without her walker.

For those of you who don’t know what to do or how to help… call and tell her a joke, don’t forget her in months to come, send her a funny movie – I just read today-

“Laughter is the best medicine-for the body, mind, and spirit. Norman Cousins, diagnosed with a terminal illness, decided to watch nothing but laugh-out-loud funny movies. This was his medicine, and it cured him. Laughter releases healing chemicals and relaxes different parts of your physical, emotional, and mental being.”

Our family is extremely grateful for your continued support.
