Alissa's surgery

My daughter was in a roll over accident May 2017.  She suffered a brain contusion and in Sept-October 2018 she has been having severe,
throbbing, constant headaches.  They average an 8 out of 10 every
minute of her awake hours of every day.  She has had to quit sports,
work and can only go to school half days.  This has really affected her
young life.  She was a very active and athletic young lady.  She has
attempted several therapies and medication that have not had any
affect on her pain.  We have found a specialist surgeon that can help her pain.  She needs to have a nerve decompression on her occipital nerve.  She had a block as a diagnostic tool to know she will benefit from
surgery.  Because of insurance issues we are paying out of pocket
expenses.  We can no longer sit by and watch her suffer when we have
the solution.  Surgery cost is $16,000. We are traveling to Virginia from Michigan for the surgery.  Hotel and flight cost is $1,100.  She is
scheduled March 27th for surgery and the money is paid up front. We would appreciate any assistance possible.
