A special thank you to everyone who has helped Michele over the years. Including: the parish of St. Patrick’s Church in Farmington, Michele’s father’s co-workers at Northeast Utilities, The Watertown Lions Club, and our family and friends. Your donations were greatly appreciated and helped pay for some of Michele’s treatments in the past.
Insurance does not cover the costs of Michele’s treatments. Our insurance company already dinied benefits for Michele to receive Ketamine treatments. They consider the treatment “experimental.” The cost for her care is very high,also there are other additional expenses (travel and lodging). Also, Michele is on several medications and the co-pays are very high.
The Ketamine treatments in Pennsylvania are not a cure. They are intended to reduce Michele’s pain to a level that is more manageable, so she can live a better life. This is the only option available to Michele at the present time. They are very expensive, but will give her some relief.
These costs are extremely high, and your help is appreciated.
In addition to these costs, we were advised by her doctor to start raising the additional funds needed to go to Germany, if/or when the Coma treatment becomes available. ( with the decrease in the U.S. dollar, the cost is estimated to be $200,000, including traveling expenses.)
If you can help Michele in any way, it would be greatly appreciated.

DONATE YOUR AIRLINE MILES
If you have Airline miles, or know someone that does, and are not using them, please donate the miles to Michele. These miles can be used towards hotel stays in Pennsylvania for Michele and her family while she receives treatments. During the winter months, Michele’s pain escalates due to the cold weather and change in barometric pressure. She has friends and relatives in California, Florida and Georgia that she can visit during these extremely bad times, however, with her high medical costs, we cannot afford airfare. The miles would help her get out of the cold and relax in the warm weather.
