Next HOW Dinner Celebrates Shari Stoops

Join Helping One Woman Oakhurst for the May 2024 Dinner when we will honor recipient Shari Stoops, lovingly sponsored by Nancy Fikkert.

Multiple Health Issues

Shari has been through a very difficult year, beginning with sciatica. She went to as many doctors’ appointment as possible, but nothing seemed to help. Doctors concluded that Shari’s spine is compressed, and she needs surgery. In the meantime, it’s difficult for her to get around, and she is pretty much confined to her house. Doctor visits between Fresno and Stanford consumed her life. If that weren’t enough, her knee replacements because infected. Medication has not cured the infection because of diabetic complications.

Doctors have told Shari that the only solution is to remove the replacements, clean the infection and replace the knees—again. When they’ve done all that, they can discuss back surgery for the sciatica.
