Giving me a life to make a contribution

My name is Dom. I need life saving bariatric surgery. This will be the first of many surgeries that need to happen in order to give me relief from chronic pain and limited mobility, as I have multiple spinal and knee injuries from various forms of misadventure.
My goal is to return to university where I plan to undertake a computer science degree with a view to be part of a team researching individualised medications through artificial intelligence to give people more effective treatments with no adverse effects.
I live with my elderly father, who is my sole carer. We are both pensioners and have limited access to funds.
I am booked in for surgery on December 14 this year and need help to cover the gap fee for my surgeon.
Thank you so much for reading this part of my story. I will update my situation as things progress.
If you feel you are able to make a contribution to giving me an opportunity to make a positive change, words are not enough, rather, my actions will tell a positive story of hope instead of one involving an uncertain life expectancy.
Most of all, enjoy your day and thank you for making mine much better! :)
