Sara's Hernia Operation

Organized by: Luis Chongo

Luis' Photo

EVENT DATE Oct 04, 2014


My name is Luis and I'm Sara's husband. My wife has two hernias that have built up over the course of 5 years due to her pregnancy. I've known her for roughly 3 years and recently married her. She is 25 and very athletic yet is allergic to many regular foods because of her hernias. She vomits all the time, especially at night. She gets fevers every night.

Our insurance won't cover her because they consider the reparation to be plastic surgery. It's essentially a tummy tuck. 

The hernia has raised her sensitivity level towards foods so that her current choice of foods must all be organic otherwise she throws them up. If she doesn't vomit them they make her very sick. She has fevers at night and you can see small protrusions of the hernias wanting to come out. They're small bumps on the side of her tummy. She has a severe medical condition which must be operated soon before it becomes strangulated. Please help us. Your support is greatly appreciated! 

The photo on the profile pic is one of my favorite memories we have together. I don't like heights but I went up there anyway. I don't like to beg either, but I feel desperate to help her and she needs this help as soon as possible.

Please help us make this dream happen by her birthday, October 4th, and thank you for reading our page.
