I had a total knee replacement in 2012 that never completely healed and as a result of that, I had to have additional surgeries trying to fix the problem. Unfortunately it didn't work and after going thru months of test, I was told in June that I had a artificial joint infection and that I would have to endure a 3-step process that included surgery to totally extract the knee, 6-8 weeks of IV antibiotic treatment to deal with the infection and more surgery to do a new total knee replacement once the infection is clear.
This process has been one of the hardest things I have EVER had to go through in my life and I have endured mental, physical and as of late, financial difficulties.
Having gone from working full-time and enjoying life to the fullest to long-term disability, limited mobility and looking for creative ways to supplement my income it has not been easy but God is good and HE has been faithful. I could say 'why me' but instead I say 'why not me' because I truly believe that if God brought me to it, HE will surely bring me thru it!!!
I have such an amazing support system and I've truly been blessed. Friends, family and associates have been such an encouragement to me in so many ways! I have a wonderful man in my life by the name of Todd Ross. Todd has been such a blessing to me and has been right by my side supporting me in all areas 100% thru this entire process. He gone over and beyond the call of duty when it comes to caring for me; to the point of discounting his own health challenges, pushing thru to care 100% for me because I'm unable to care for myself at this time. At this time Todd is caring for me full-time and he's unable to handle business within his own company as a entrepreneur. What a SACRIFICE!!!!!!!!! Thank you TODD!!!
Because of this, currently things are not as we would prefer them to be financially and help is needed. I was recently sharing my concerns with a friend when she reached out to see how I was doing and after sharing with her she said ' you have always been there in one way or another for EVERYONE; now it's time for us to be here for you.' As a result of that conversation, this gofundme account was created for support during this time. Thank you in advance for your financial support! My prayer is that God would bless you 100 fold! Thank you in advance for sharing this page!
