Melanie Valentine's Surgery

Organized by: Melanie Valentine

Melanie's Photo

THE STORY:

Melanie has Lymphedema, an abnormal swelling in her right leg. She aquired this condition after a parasite damaged the lymph nodes in the upper part of her leg. We will be doing an online fundraiser, and a fundraising event on November 14th in West Palm Beach Florida. The cost in treating lymphedema is enormous in and of itself. However, the cost of the surgery is even greater. Melanie requires this surgery in order to prevent life threatening infections, and for her to return to work. The surgery will take place in South Carolina, as this is where the specialized surgeon practices. We are trying to raise money to cover the costs, as Melanie has been unable to work, and has incurred debt in trying to treat her condition over the last 9 years. The surgery will cost approximately $40,000, and insurance will only cover half of this. In addition, there will be travel expenses, hotel lodging for 2 weeks, and medical supplies (bandages, 3 months of Physical therapy, and medical compression garments for her leg).
