Candy’s Spine Surgery Fund

$22,322 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 430 people in 2 months
I’m a private person & the thought of posting this makes me anxious, but I honestly feel like I have no option. Chronic health problems have used up my savings & I have nothing left.

I need major spine surgery. I've been unable to work, have no income & no disability. This will be my 5th surgery and probably the most difficult. I need money for 3 surgeons, hospital stay, home care, copays, medical equipment rental, rehabilitation, MRIs, meds, expenses, etc.  I’ll be confined to bed for at least 3 months Full healing time is a year but I hope to be able to work in 6 months. I have health insurance but the deductible is enormous & my portion is simply impossible. I have significant, permanent nerve damage & autoimmune issues so recovery time is extensive.

I’m not the kind of person who asks easily, but without surgery, I'll never be able to get my life back.

Asking for help is almost as difficult as the surgery & rehab I'm facing. I'm grateful for any way you can help me get my life back. Thank you so much.

❤️Candy Elliott.

It’s breaks my heart when people tell me how happy they are that I’m on the mend. In all honesty, I feel like I’m letting everyone down. So many of you continue to help raise funds for my ongoing medical issues and I love you so much for your kindness. I’ve never felt this special in my entire life. Unfortunately, things aren’t going as planned at the moment.

The nerve pain and muscle spasms are unbearable. I was put on steroids this morning, because who doesn’t want weight gain, facial hair, acne, thinning skin, melasma, nausea, hair loss, more depression & anxiety, and about 20 other side effects.

This is the first time I’m having a hard time using laughter to get through my pain.

I’m trying to remain hopeful,
but it’s becoming increasingly difficult. All I want is a normal life and it feels like it’s never going to happen. I haven’t slept in days so I apologize for my crazy message. One update is easier than answering a lot of questions. I’m also on about 10 medications so I’m happy to be writing anything at all. Haha

I’m seeing the doctor on Monday to figure some things out. I’m hoping for the best and will do my best to keep fighting the pain and sadness.

Thank you for your continued love and support. I couldn’t have done any of this without you. xoxoxo

One last thing...Please don’t take your health for granted. It’s a gift, so please treat it that way.

Love you.
