Alex's 3rd ACL Surgery

Hello, I'm Brittany, one of Alex's closest friends in Utah. Earlier this year in January, Alex completed surgery number 2 on her right ACL after tearing it for a second time playing soccer. Since then she has been so careful to avoid any sports that could potentially hurt her knee. Her goal was to have her medical bills paid off by the end of this year! Unfortunately, the universe had other plans for her. A couple months ago as we were walking horses from the pasture, one horse in particular became very anxious and scared, and started running circles around her. Then the horse took off, dragging Alex several feet, and in a mix of hooves and legs, Alex tore her left ACL, her good knee. She was devastated; but it wasn't just because of the physical pain she knew she would have to endure. She was overwhelmed by the financial burden of her 3rd surgery in just a few short years.

Alex will be having surgery at the end of this year, and we can help! Please if you are able, donate to Alex to help lighten her burden. Any amount is greatly appreciated :) I will be withdrawing the funds, and then writing her a big check at the end of the campaign. The money will go directly to Alex to help pay her medical bills. She doesn't know who has donated yet! We are keeping it a surprise until we give ther the check this Christmas! Thank you for your support.
