NEED SURGERY PLEASE HELP
Organized by: Christine Hoag
My little family consists of myself and my 11 year old daughter. I am Christine, I am 52 years old. It has been a tough difficult spring and summer for me and my daughter Abigail. In May I was forced to go on short term disability because of severe pain in my right hip and leg. Then in July I was rushed to the hospital where I was diagnosed with blood clots in my legs and lungs. I was lucky to survive, after 4 day in the ICU and 7 total days in the hospital I was finally able to go home. Soon I found out that I needed a total hip replacement , but because of the blood clots I am unable to have surgery until this winter or spring. I did have a injection into my hip joint to help with some of the pain, but I still have mobility and pain issues. I have also started having trouble with my other hip. I have been out of work for over 4 months and living on $900 a month STD insurance has been tough. My daughter has really been a big help with things around the house that I was unable to do or needed help with. If I am unable to get back to work by 6 months I will lose my job of 13 years. I am going to attempt to go back to work in October, but with the continuing pain and mobility issues I am not sure how long I will be able to work. What ever happens with work if I am cleared for surgery this winter I won't be able to have my hip fixed because I don't have any sick time or pay to live on during surgery and recovery. We need your donations so I can have the surgery, and have money to live on and money for help with recovery. Recovery can take 6 weeks to 6 months depending on how surgery goes. Also because I am a single mom I am going to need money to get help with rehab and taking care of my daughter until I get back on my feet. I don't like asking for help, but I don't have a choice. In order to save my family, our home, and our future I have to ask for your help. My daughter needs me/mom to get healthy so I can be an active happy working mom with a more secure future. I am the only parent she has and my extended family does not have the ability to help financially. Please donate to help save my little family. Thank you.
