Alicia’s second chance

52567554_1605316937900967_r.jpegHello my name is Alicia, I am 24 years of age ever since I can remember I have struggled with my mental health & my weight. After being diagnosed with Trochanteric Bursitis when I was 17 it has made loosing weight impossible. As this diagnosis results in my chronic pain getting  worse when I am standing, walking or running. I have literally tried absolutely everything to decrease my pain from my diagnosis including Cortizone injections, numerous Physio appointment’s & countless Dietitians but unfortunately have had no success.

I have tried everything physically possible to improve my mental health & weight but unfortunately I have seen no results so I am left with one option which is weight loss surgery also known as a Gastric Sleeve Surgery.

Unfortunately with the pain from my diagnosis I am completely unable to work which results in me having no funds & the endless amounts of money my family have had to come up with & spend on countless different things that haven’t worked has left us with completely no funds to afford the surgery.

I have considered the public health system but have been told it is up to a 4 year waiting list & that does not guarantee you get the surgery & unfortunately my mental health & physically health can not hold out for that long. So I have decided to do a go fund me page as I am only 24 years young & if I was lucky enough to have this surgery done I know for a fact it would dramatically change my mental health, physically health & my future.

I feel as though I am still so young & have my whole life ahead of me but feel as though this diagnosis has stolen the quality of my life from me. If you are able to help me in any way possible whether it be a donation small or big or even if you could please share my story onto your social media platforms it would mean the absolute world to me!

Thankyou so much for taking the time out of your day to read this & any help is absolutely appreciated!
