My dad needs back surgery! However, he is $3,100 short. But, we can change that! Dad did a trial implant awhile back and I saw the dramatic difference it made on his life. He came back to life. He smiled bigger and laughed harder. He was the dad that I have always known. He texted me that weekend and said, "best weekend I have had in over 2 years," and I cried at knowing that my dad was relieved of some of his constant pain and that there was real hope for his recovery. When he told me he was postponing the surgery because of money, I cried again.
My dad is too prideful and too selfless to ever give his burden to others. He would never ask for money. But, I have no problem humbly asking you for your support.
My dad is generous, loving, and has given everything for the people he loves. Help me give my dad his life back, he deserves it more than anyone I know.
An anonymous backer has agreed to match donations up to 1,500. That is almost 1/2 of the money that we need! With your help, we can accomplish our goal in no time! I am beyond grateful for the generosity and kindness this person has shown, and I am beyond grateful for every one of you.
Every one of you is a hero. I believe it takes very little to create a positive change in this universe. So, I am humbly asking you for help. Please share this with anyone you think would be interested. Please give us your support. Please help me restore my dad's life.
Love and Smiles,
