Benny Mardones and his amazing wife, Jane, are in great need of our help.

Benny was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 2002 and as the disease progressed, the tremors made the tasks of everyday life difficult. In July Benny underwent DBS (Deep Brain Stimulation) surgery to minimize the tremors. Unfortunately complications from these extensive surgeries made his recovery difficult with confusion and the loss of simple skills. While the tremors have minimized, his balance, stability and pain have created numerous other issues. Shortly after the surgery, Benny experienced multiple falls including one that dislocated his hip and shattered his pelvic bone. Continued dislocations and several surgeries later, Benny remains bedridden fighting infections and awaits yet another surgery for a complete hip replacement.

Why we need help

Rehab facilities lack the proper and timely attention that Benny deserves and may remain vulnerable to further injuries.

We all love Benny and he means the world to us.  He is a veteran of the US Navy and has given his love and time to innumerable charities including the “Make A Wish” foundation, Parkinson’s fundraisers, inspiration for the disabled in Washington DC with the Secretary of Health and many many other local and personal needs of others. He played a pivotal role in raising over $30,000 for the West Genesee Athletic Club by hosting 2 Casino Nights.

Medical Needs

 

It is suggested that a nurse or PSW be hired to insure Benny’s safety and facilitate his recovery.  Once home personal care will need to be continued with health care nurses and physical therapists.  Such care at over $300 daily is cost prohibitive and much will not be covered by any insurance.  Although Jane is Benny’s angel and has worked tirelessly on his behalf, she is not strong enough to care for him alone as Benny is unable to walk or support his body weight.  In addition towheelchairs and other medical devices, Benny’s home will need to be adapted to accommodate his lengthy recovery and return some quality to his life.
