Dino's Tendon Surgery

My name is Dino Butler(my son Caleb and I are pictured above) and my wife Nanette and I are missionaries to Native Youth with North America Indigenous Ministries on the Navajo Reservation in New Mexico. I'm trying to raise funds to pay for a surgery that the Indian Health Service couldn't cover. Also, being missionaries didn't allow my wife and I to be eligible for Medicaid, because our fluctuating income put us barely past the limit of eligibility. Please understand that I know how the system works and I personally do not bear any animosity towards IHS at all, especially during this time of Covid-19.  I was on a time crunch for the surgery because my right bicep tendon only had three weeks to be elastic enough to be reattached, so I put $500 down to start the process.  $10,000 is the goal to cover most of the medical expenses, according to estimates given to me by the hospital, which may turn out to be more. My prayer is that I'll be able to pay for the surgery without having to put it on a credit card or anything like that. Thank you in advance for considering and giving to my need.......any amount is greatly appreciated......God bless you all.
