GIVING BACK

Except for 2017, Shelley Fisher, accompanied by several friends visits the University Medical Center (UMC) on Christmas Morning and go from ward to ward, singing classic holiday songs. “We intentiorally make the ‘Childrens Ward’ our last stop. Some of the stories are simply too difficult to bear, especially when most of us get to go home and be with family." 


We were prevented from visiting in 2017 due to security issues from the 1 October massacre in Las Vegas.

TESTIMONIALS

UNSOLICITED TESTAMENTS

  • “I will soon be ninety-seven years old and suffer from severe rheumatoid arthritis in both my knees. I was somewhat skeptical about using cannabis until I listened to Shelley’s advice and started applying the Synergy Relief Cream. It will not cure my illness but it sure allows me a better quality of life“ ~~Juanita Simond, Las Vegas, NV (Lower left)


  • “Shelley Fisher—you have no idea who I am. I’m a fan from your Mirage days. I remember hearing of your accident, and I was devastated. I’m so glad that you are in a good place! The medical industry prefers dependence on opioids. I work with veterans, so I see this daily. Please know that a fan from more than a decade ago supports you and is THRILLED that you have found a way to manage pain. I honor you in your mission to help others find relief. Also, I want you to know that your music brought magic to people. May you do the same in this new journey of healing“ ~~Erin Fowler, Henderso, NV.


  • Mr. Fisher, Thank you for speaking with me last week. Your knowledge of cannabis helped to ease my mind and feel better about choosing to try it for my pain. 


  • I have Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Diabetes and I am a Leiomyosarcoma survivor for 4 years. I know I have quite a bit going but pain management is my first priority. 


  • When you're in pain everyday your quality of life changes and instead of enjoying your days you're just trying to get through it. 


  • As I told you, I never smoked marijuana with my peers when I was growing up and as I got older I was high on life with none of the medical problems I have now. I consider myself a "weed virgin." 


  • Thank you for educating me and helping me to feel comfortable with my decision. Calling you that day was my first step to better pain management my way. 


  • I'll keep in touch, 
  • Pamela Balmer Murphy
