Moroccan Knees For Cornelius

Thank you for taking a moment to hear our story. I am Ann O’Quinn and I am raising money to help my husband, Shaun Patrick “Cornelius” O’Quinn receive a Total Knee Replacement Surgery on BOTH knees. ********Corny told me years ago that he did not want to bother with medical procedures as he grows older. But 3 years ago, his attitude and outlook on life shifted when our grandson, Jude, was born. Now Corny works diligently on many fronts to improve his health. ******** For those of you who know Cornelius, you know he has bowed legs and a waddling gate (he has for years). He has quite a high pain threshold and has never complained. But now the pain is getting to be too much. After reviewing the X-rays, the doctors are perplexed that he can walk at all. ******** We do not have health insurance. Even if we did, we would not be able to afford the out of pocket cost for these surgeries ($60,000). ******** I have done my research on medical tourism. So....we are raising funds to have these surgeries performed at a fraction of the cost in Morocco ($15,500). ******** Cornelius has been known over the years as a contractor, farmer, youth mentor, Burner, Granger, Community Radio Broadcaster. Papaw now spends most of his time trying to keep up with the apple of his eye, Jude, and teaching him about gardening, fishing, clamming, mushroom hunting, mistletoe, cooking, chores and community involvement. ******** A successful campaign which results in Moroccan Knees for Cornelius would be such a fantastic collective gift to help us celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary. ******** Please make a donation (and of course SHARE this story with those who you think will appreciate it). ******** Check out the extra photos, which also includes a pic of the sketched out budget. ******** Blessings from a grateful Mamaw.
