Help with ACL reconstruction

Two months ago I took a nasty fall while bouldering. After realizing the loud pop that rang from my knee wasn't something that could be fixed with ice and elevation alone, I was devastated. My job relies on me being able to care for others and I could hardly take care of my self at that point. All the x-rays, MRI's,   countless doctors visits said the same thing : I had torn my ACL entirely, my meniscus was torn, and I had bone bruising. I thought that would be the worst of it ...
Until I found out the cost for someone who wasn't covered by insurance. 

   Despite the stress of those numbers, I finally had an ACL reconstruction surgery scheduled. It went through without a hitch, other than the intermittent pain radiating through my leg. (Thank you pain killers)

   My friends were kind enough to encourage and help me put this page together in an effort to assist with the remaining  medical expenses that I'm having trouble with.
   
It's really hard for me to ask for help like this, but if you are able to help even in the slightest, I'd be eternally grateful.  I understand if you can't right now. Positive thoughts are also welcome. 

I'd be happy to help you in return once I'm able! I can make you some art, frame some photos, take photos for you (holidays are coming ;),  maybe even help you garden... whatever you need help with. 

Anyway,
Thank you so much for  taking the time to read this and share.
