Tracey's Medical Fund

A few years ago, Tracey had a spinal fusion due to herniated discs in her lower back.  Just prior to Christmas, 2017, Tracey ruptured additional discs in her back which now require surgery.  Since that time, Tracey has been unable to return to work. She has lost weeks of pay from her three jobs.  She is a collaborative pianist in a local school district, working more than 32 hours a week.  Tracey then works most evenings to provide piano lessons to a number of young students.  In addition to those two jobs, Tracey spends the weekends as the organist at two different churches, volunteering as choir director as well.  She is passionate about her role in each of these jobs and dedicates a lot of time to preparing and practicing in addition to the work hours.    For six weeks, Tracey has been in pain, only able to stand briefly or lay down.  She had to wait until 2018 to seek approval due to a insurance company change within Obamacare.  With the loss of pay, Tracey is unable to afford the copay for surgery.  On top of that, the monthly bills are mounting.  Tracey just recently received word that the spinal surgery will occur February 1.  The spine surgeon stated that she will be unable to return to work until at least March 1 following the surgery.  Tracey's savings were depleted just prior to these events as her dog, whom she loves dearly, required both eyes removed due to glaucoma, a costly out-of-pocket surgery.  
As her family, we decided to call upon the generosity of family and friends to support her financially and prayerfully at this time.  Her expenses are immediate.  If you would be willing to give even a small amount, the support would be greatly appreciated.  
Tracey works so hard to support herself and at this time has realized she must lean on the support of friends and family.  Thank you for considering giving to Tracey.
