THE STORY:

Hi, first of all I want to thank you for taking the time to learn a little more about me. My name is Alyssa Arella and if I were to describe myself in a phrase, I am a fairly well rounded scholar athlete. My passion is soccer. I come from a soccer family and it is what I love and I’ve been playing for the past 13 years – I can’t imagine life without it. . . As you can imagine, I hope to play competitively in college and hopefully on an international stage. I am entering my senior year of high school and I am confident that I will be competitive at a collegiate level – but my parent’s insurance company refuses to assist my parents with hospital costs. You see, I suffered an injury in December. Like most athletes, I picked myself up and played through the pain thinking I just pulled a muscle. It turned out to be more than a pulled muscle. After months of non- evasive alternative therapy my injury remains and I am unable to move like I used to and I can no longer play soccer. I tore my labral and my hip socket needs reshaping. As it was explained to me, the insurance company refuses to pay for the surgery because it is “not necessary.” I am 16. The insurance company does not have to worry about the pain when I sit at my desk in school, or dread the walk up stairs in anticipation of the pinching; they do not feel the aching at night when I am trying to sleep. They do not suffer my loss having to give up what I love. My parents said I am “3” point’s away from an arbitrary number that the insurance company relies on to authorize payment for surgery. That is unacceptable to me and I just need some help.
