I have had rheumatoid arthritis all 30 years of my life. (Yes, kids get arthritis too!!) My left hip needs replaced asap, but my insurance sucks and I will have a $12,000 deductible for this surgery. I do not want to be forced on disabilty in order to get the care that I need. At 30-years-old, my hip is that of a 90-year-olds. I hate to resort to gofundme, but it's worth a shot, right? I am desperate for this surgery as it will allow me to continue working, relieve some of my daily pain, and help me better care for my toddler daughter. Big or small, all donations are greatly appreciated!!! If I am fortunate enough to reach my goal and then some, any extra cash will be donated for Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis research because I feel no child should ever have to deal with daily pain. Thank you all so much!
