Lyndsey's ACL surgery
Organized by: Lyndsey Wankowicz
My name is Lyndsey. I am a 15 year-old high school student at James Martin high school. I play on both competitive and national soccer teams, and it has always been my passion to play in college as well. Unfortunately, my plans were interrupted by an injury that occurred during a game. The doctors informed me of the tear in my anterior cruciate ligament, more commonly known as the ACL, as well as a tear in my meniscus and a sprain in my medial collateral ligament, also known as MCL. This requires surgery which would cost my mom, who is a single mother that receives no child support, over 2,000 out of pocket. Meanwhile, she is also worried about an additional surgery for the removal of my wisdom teeth later in May. I know she says that she'll figure it out somehow, but I see the stress she is going through and it breaks my heart. If you have the means to help, it would be greatly appreciated.
