Help Svetlana to play again!!!

Hello friends, As some of you know I hurt my left knee again (I had ACL surgery 3.5 years ago) at Pottstown Rumble a month ago where I was defending my 2 consecutive tittles. At first it didn't seems like a serious injury but the MRI showed: partial ACL tear, medial meniscus tear, bruised bone, and quad/patella tendon strain. I couldn't believed the results and I felt very defeated. Mainly because I just started playing AVP and I was all set to play FIVB in Long Beach for my native Serbia, and I had all my focus on being great and pursuing my dream of being a professional beach volleyball player and doing some great things for beach volleyball in my country. But I had no time to feel sorry for myself as I believe everything happens for a reason. What was the reason this time I have no idea but it's another challenge and I will come out bigger, better and stronger :) The biggest issues I have right now is not my desire to recover and get back in the sand, it's the fact that I have no insurance. Just visiting the hospital and the doctor's appointments are already a big expense. Doctor said I will have to get some kind of surgery, but first I have to do another test to see how much stretched my ACL is and how bad meniscus tear is. That is another expensive test that has to come out of my pocket and on top of that the surgery I have to get done. That is why I ask you my friends for any donation you can afford to help me get back on the court and pursue my dream.
I thank you all for taking your time to read this and I hope to see you on the volleyball court soon. LOVE, SVETLANA
