Help Antonina Pay for Urgent Surgery
My mother, Antonina, is a hard-working Haitian immigrant with 4 children. Over the years, working as a nurse has caused major damage to her knees, causing severe loss of cartilage and osteoporosis. Despite being in pain each day, Antonina gets up every morning to work to make a living for her 4 children. After a recent doctor’s visit, my mother discovered that she desperately needs a total knee replacement on her damaged knees in order to recover from the traumatic damage done to her knees over the years. As I mentioned before, my mother is a Haitian immigrant. She is here only because of her TPS. With the soon to be termination of TPS, it is imperative that my mother get everything together as quickly as she can, including having this urgent surgery done. My mother has missed out on being involved in her children’s life and daily activities because of her severe knee damage. My siblings and I have been determined to help our mother in every way that we can, but we need a little help. If you are able to donate or even share please do. Anything will be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.+ Read More
A recent trip to the doctor showed that my mother may be in the beginning phase of cardiomegaly, which is the enlargement of the heart. Cardiomegaly can lead to heart failure, so please, if you’re able to share or donate *anything*, even $10, we would be very appreciative!
First & foremost, I just want to say a massive thank you to everyone who has donated so far. $1166 in just a week is amazing. The total amount of the surgery is $50,000, but we just got updated that our new insurance will cover a large majority of it. We only have a few months for her to go in & complete the surgery, so that she can start the rehabilitation process as soon as possible. Please keep donating & boosting if you can!
