Friends, would you PLEASE take moment to help me? We need 1,000 petition signatures to even get law makers to look at the issue and currently have just over 200.
Please go to the link, add your name and share with others! We are trying to get a law passed simply to made the reporting and collection of data if anyone strokes within 120 days of a chiropractic neck adjustment (many, like mine, happy right on the table, but there are also times when neck adjustment creates issues in the artery that manifest as rupture and stroke many weeks later).
Right now chiropractic stroke is deemed "rare" but each individual case is locked away in private medical reports and no one has access to the statistics. We believe this is actually a fairly common occurrence, just nobody is gathering the stats! Please help us change this failure in accurate information.
Please post "signed" and/or "shared" on this thread as you take action so I can see what's happening where. :)
Thirty-nine-year-old Jennifer Saake (founder, Hannah's Prayer Ministries), experienced 6 strokes via vertebral dissection at a chiropractic office, including brain stem and cerebellum bleeds, in Oct. 2011. Jenni remained hospitalized for nearly 2 months and was not expected to live (near death experience) nor recover, but if she even survived, she was slated to live out her days in a nursing home or, best case, to maybe come home but wheelchair-bound and needing 24-hour care. At 5 years, 7 months God showed how He was writing her story from the beginning.
Jenni is currently writing more books and stays active on both Facebook and Pinterest. Here is her resume.
Since Jenni's chiropractor carried no insurance and moved out of the country soon after the accident (thus avoiding any legal or financial consequences), if you would like to help contribute to the Saake (pronounced like the two small words, say and key) family's massive financial needs (medical expenses alone are estimated to cost between $1- and $1.5- Million in Jenni's lifetime), please visit Jennifer Saake's Stroke Survivor GoFundMe Page. (This support information has been added in direct response to several reader requests.) The Saakes sincerely thank you for your prayers and if God prompts and equips you to send any monetary assistance as well, this is a significant added blessing.
