Patty's fund for knee surgery


My name is Patty, 
I need to raise money in order to have knee sugery, raising these funds, and getting help from my facebook friends to reach my goal is important. The reason why raising funds is important is because I have cronic knee pain in both knees and it makes walking and standing a challenge throughout my day. I am a strong willed person, and because of this I do not always show through my emotions how much pain I am in, but because my knees are rubbing bone on bone, I am in a great deal of pain daily; often times it brings me to tears. Futhermore, the pain that I struggle with on a daily basis prevents me from enjoying certain activities with my daughter, such as  going on walks, doing activities with her service dog group etc. Getting the help from you, my facebook friends, would mean a great deal to me because it would mean I will no longer be in constant pain. Moreover, it would allow me to walk and stand for a longer length of time, and I would be able to walk further distances. The funds provided by you, my friends, will allow me to get the surgery I so desprately need. The funds need to be collected as soon as possible, because I am unable to have the surgery until financial cost is met. Due to financial harships and high out of pocket insuranceexpenses, I am unable to provide the money on my own. For this reason, I have created this page and am reaching out to all of you for assistance. If you all can help me reach my fund raising goal, I will be thanful for you kind donations because it will mean a life free from pain and a chance for me to regain some of the mobility lost caused by my cronic knee pain.
