Island School helping one of our own
Please help with Damon Bagley - read his story written by
his daughter, Justiss Bagley.
Mr. Bagley walking with our students in the walk-a-thon today.
Island School earned $615 in t-shirt sale - thank you Classic Soccer for donating time and graphics.
$1822 in dinner sales, and pledges are still coming in. Saturday two Island School students Gauge Garcia and Garth Kasiner will be taking off their helmets prior to their races, with fellow racers, to ask the crowd to "fill their helmets" in support of Mr. Bagley.
Thank you all for all you have done to help Mr. Bagley in earning funds for his stem cell therapy procedure.
My father has always been our Hero, now it is time for us to
become his Hero. My name is Justiss and I am 16 years old, I have a 12 year old
brother and his name is Shane. My dad tells us we mean everything to him. In
early 2006 my dad, Damon Bagley, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). In
December of 2011 my father was involved in a head-on Collision on his way to work.
Soon after the accident his multiple sclerosis symptoms started flaring up. He
began having troubles with his vision and balance. In 2014 he started using a
cane to help with his balance but by 2015 he was in his first wheelchair. MS
is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system
that disrupts the flow of information between the brain and body. It is an autoimmune
disease, what this means is something in my father’s body triggered his immune
system to attack itself. The cause of MS is still unknown – scientists
believe the disease is triggered by unidentified environmental factors in a
person who is genetically predisposed to multiple sclerosis.
My father is a charismatic, strong, and a loving man who always puts others
first. He was a Deputy Sheriff for Fresno County Sheriff's Department for about
8 years and then a Police Officer for Clovis Police Department for an
additional 8 years. He was very involved with youth throughout his career
although his dream was always to become a teacher. After leaving law
enforcement he started teaching at Washington Union High school.
During his time at the high school he has started a Law & Justice program
with around 170 students, this program is for students from the 8th grade
through the 12th grade. Many of the students have moved on to enroll in college
and major in a variety of criminal justice fields. My father also started
a drug education program prior to leaving law enforcement, he still continues
to work with some of the high school students, helping them with any struggles
they have with substance abuse. My father’s Multiple Sclerosis has
advanced to the point where his teaching career is being threatened.
The procedure that could help my father get his life back is a stem cell
therapy procedure and it is a new procedure based around stem cell replacement.
Unfortunately health insurance still does not recognize the procedure and this
means he has to raise enough money to be able to receive the procedure and it
will take multiple procedures for the best results. For further
information please visit stemgenex.com.
The success of this procedure would allow my father to be fully involved in
Shane's and my life. My hopes are for my father to be at every one of my
brothers sporting events and for him to one day walk me down the aisle at my
wedding. He would also like to continue his career as a teacher and be involved
with his students’ lives continuing to impact them in a positive way. Thank you
for reading our story and God bless you.
