Hello everyone, as most of you know Alan and I opened CrossFit Milo 6 months ago. Anyone who has started their own business can empathize with how challenging the first year of running your own business can be. Our Journey has been made even more challenging with the significant delay and escalating expenses of our opening. Then life and finances became even more challenging when Alan's full time position was eliminated, resulting in our loosing healthcare and an income. We have been actively doing everything in our power to get new healthcare and a full time position for Alan. Which has presented it's own set of challenges. Then 5 weeks ago I suffered a significant knee injury requiring surgery to repair: complex nondisplaced tear of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus, partial-thickness radial tear and superimposed fraying, synovitis and bursitis. I need to have my knee scoped and repaired. I have been in a brace for 5 weeks, unable to sleep through the night, coach effectively, or stand for a long period of time without significant pain and restricted mobility. This makes life even more interesting when our entire business is dependant on me being able to function as a coach. At some point in life, we all ned a little help. Today I'm asking for a little help. I'm scheduled for surgery July 13th, and I'm asking for just enough to cover the cost of the surgery. If you are in a position to help me get back on my feet...or back in my squat.. both Alan and I will be forever in your debt. Thank you in advance for any help you might be able to give.
