Free from pain and dancing
"I again must thank everyone for the support KW Cares gave us. My daughter would not have been able to get better. My daughter could not walk for two years and was an 8 out of 10 on the pain scale 24 hours a day. We went to every specialist we could find. Finally, after two years of every treatment known for her condition, we found Dr. Baralot. He is the best in the world at what he does. When we found him he had just set up practice 10 minutes from our house. He came in from Italy and had done over 4,000 procedures. When he installed the nerve stimulator in Maddie’s hip and spine it made it possible for her to not only walk again but she he is almost pain free when we turn the devise on through remote control. She had to have 3 major surgeries to get it all done. She is now talking some dance again her life’s passion. She is riding a bike, swimming, playing with her friends and being her old self again. People like KW Cares gave her life back to her. We could not afford any of this without help. Just the surgeries cost thousands and thousands of dollars, much of which was not covered by insurance. You see they deemed the surgery "experimental", or not "medically necessary." My daughter could not even sleep at night she was in so much pain. She was slowing going into a depression and we were slowing loosing her. She was beginning to accept the state she was in. She was never in danger of dying, but she was unable to function almost on any level. All she could do was fight the pain. She would have been in a wheelchair or crutches the rest of her life and even worse the pain. Again she is now doing awesome. She is her old self again. The money had to be paid up front and we did not have it. We already had borrowed every thing we could to save my wife. So Thank You!! Thank You!! Thank You!! Thank You!!"
