Help John pay for a prosthetic leg

I am raising money on a cause of being hit by an uninsured driver who was under the influence of drugs and substances which resulted in hitting me head on , on my motorcycle. 14 surgeries on my left leg which resulted to loosing my left leg above the knee in 2010. I was paralyzed and misdiagnosed with multi level spinal cord injuries. In 2013 I was rear ended from behind while finally able to drive my car, and resulted in a broken neck. Drs. Said , I'd be lucky to walk again.. I worked so hard to not be disfigured and paralyzed. To be able to move my legs. I'm doing pretty well now considering lifelong damage. I needed a prosthesis and have exhausted all of medicade options with prosthetic facilities that either didn't care or did not have the skills. I am forced to pay out of pocket to regain my life. The socket which is the interface that connects your limb to the components is very expensive. Over 10,000 just for socket and liners . I may need 3 sockets in a year depending on how the residual limb reacts. The components are in excess of 100,000. They don't last forever. I've exhausted my life savings, my automotive business and will never be able to do the work I've done for 25 yrs. It has been 6 years total . Im 45 yrs old .Long and grueling road to recovery. I normally wouldn't be asking for help, but I'm desperate and don't want to lose my home. I am a half million dollars in debt from hospital bills. I would appreciate any donation that you can contribute. Thank you sincerely, John Plawzan.
