An MRI showed that she had a completely torn patellar tendon, a dislocated knee cap, missing cartilage, and extensive tissue damage among other things I can't pronounce. Basically, her knee was completely destroyed and required an extensive reconstructive surgery to repair the damage followed by 6 months of physical therapy and time away from work for recovery.
The worst part of all of this is Landry is a full-time college student that also works a full-time job, but she has NO HEALTH INSURANCE! She's already thousands of dollars in debt just because of the emergency room costs, MRI, lab work, etc. We learned that the cost of surgery would be over $10,000 and she had to pay at least half just to have the procedure. Our family has pulled together everything we have to come up with the 50% down payment so she can have surgery and begin her journey of recovery, but Landry will still be responsible for the remaining balance. Adding that to the costs she's already accrued along the way with no PTO for post-surgery and at least 6 months of physical therapy, we decided it was time to ask for help on behalf of our sister (something that is difficult for all of us to do).
For those that know Landry, she is truly one of the most selfless and hardworking people I know. She'll drop everything to be there when she's needed. She prides herself on working hard to be independent. For the first time in a long time, she is limited in her ability to simply work harder to take care of this burden. If you have anything to give to help our sister in her journey, we'd be incredibly grateful. All money received will be used to pay for her medical bills and physical therapy post-surgery. If you aren't in a place to give financially, please add her to your prayer list as she has a difficult journey ahead.
