Leah and Corey- Medical Bills

This campaign is to support my dearest friends Leah and Corey Bostwick.  For those who know them, you will agree that they are the most generous, loyal and wonderful people out there!  They have poured so much of themselves into the people around them, and continue to do so.  
Leah's health has been a struggle for many years, and she is unable to work due to debilitating pain and nauseau related to a condition called scoliosis, which is an abnormal curvature of the spine.  Leah has a severe form of scoliosis which required surgery in her early teen years in which they implanted two ten inch metal rods in her back to hold her spine straight.  Her condition has required countless procedures and maintenance to keep her functioning.  This includes weekly chiropractic visits, medication, and massage therapy, just to name a few.  As you can imagine, this gets exremely expensive.  And with just Corey's income and lots of bills, finances are a major concern for them both.  

Leah has been advised by her physician that she will need to undergo yet another procedure which requires injections between three of her vertebrae.  In all, this works out to six injections per session with multiple sessions.    Leah has been told that this procedure is extremely painful, with recovery time for each session being at least a week.  The purpose of this procedure is to strengthen the muscles around her spine, which will hopefully alleviate some of the pain and pressure she has been feeling.  Each session costs $2,000, which is money that they don't have.  
Corey has stood by Leah through the midst of it all and their love holds strong through adversity. Both have huge amounts of strength and resiliency.  I admire them greatly, and just want to do my part to help ease some of the financial pressures.
So, I am asking for an outpouring of financial support, to let Corey and Leah know that they don't have to carry this burden alone.  With so much else to worry about, they should not have to worry about paying for these treatments which insurance won't cover.
For the first time, Leah has found a doctor who is able to offer some relief.  We are very hopeful that these injections will give her long-awaited and much-needed relief.  Thank you for being a part of this.   

Thank you in advance for your support!  It is kindness, love, and charity that unite us all.
