Justice "Straight Up" needs your help!

Here we are, just a year after we found out Justice has Scoliosis.  We tried chiropractic care but her curvature has increased over 10 degrees in the last year and her specialist said it isn't going to stop.  She is past the point for wearing a brace too.  She is in pain all the time.  Sometimes with a smile on her face and doing things the other kids are doing because she doesn't want to miss out.  But still in pain.  We have decided to proceed with back surgery.  She has decided she wants to do this.  It's major.  It's a long recovery.  She has done her homework on it, most would be scared to even know what this surgery entails.  The specialist said her spine is flexible, which is great, that will allow him the best chance to get her as straight as possible. 
The surgery is over 5 hours long, with a 3 day stay in the hospital and 6 weeks at home for recovery, so she will not be able to go back to school this semester.  Then it's a 6 month recovery for her spine to heel.  There will be good days and for sure some bad ones.  
This surgery is expensive beyond words.  And we will do all we can to make this happen for her, but if you can find it in your heart to help, even a little, we would be forever grateful to you.  Our initial out of pocket costs are $2000 to have the surgery.  Which is scheduled for April 19th in Omaha.  We are already grateful for the prayers and words of encouragement.  This is scary to even fathom that she will undergo a surgery like this at 15 years old.  We appreciate all the support, we truly do.  Thank you,  Justice and Family
