Odessa Woman Receives Help From Old School Wrestling To Pay For Medical Procedure

ECISD employee Amy Mundy needs your help for a life saving surgery.

Odessa, TX (Local Big 2 Sports) - "The brain disorder I’ve been diagnosed with is called chiari malformation", said Amy Mundy of Odessa.

They are structural defects in the cerebellum, which is the part of the brain that controls balance.

Next week, a doctor will perform a bone decompression surgery.

"I am hoping for a complete recovery with the neural symptoms that I have", said Mundy.

The surgery involves making an incision at the back of the head and removing a small portion of the bottom of the skull.

Old School Wrestling decided to help Mundy with the expenses of the upcoming surgery.

"We definitely owe Amy a debt of gratitude and really it's an honor for us to be able to have this show on her behalf", said Professional wrestler Jastin Taylor.

"It’s an opportunity for them to come together to help one of their own", said Taylor.

This event hits close to home, helping out a fellow community member.

"She’s always very concerned about the students and the children", said Taylor.

100 percent of the proceeds go toward helping Mundy.

The donations assist the family with travel to the hospital and the medical expenses.

"With Old School Wrestling having a benefit in on my behalf. I'm so humbled and you just really can't seem to say thank you enough", said Mundy.

As a registered nurse, she is use to giving to others, but now her friends are giving back to her.

"It’s hard, it's been hard for me to accept the fact that people, there's genuine good people in the world that want to help us", said Mundy.

"We’ve got a teacher, an ECISD member that really needs our help so please come out and support your community and support this cause", said Taylor.

While chiari malformation has taken its toll on Amy, she's determined to keep fighting.

"The drive that keeps me going is my children and my husband and family. I have 3 beautiful children and that's why I wake up every day", said Mundy.
