Helping Lizy with surgery

Hi my name is Lizette, in 2002 I suffered an accident that cause me some problems with my spine I was told by several Doctors that I would need surgery but there was a 50% chance I would walk again, time went by & in July 2015 I woke up & tried getting out of bed & I couldn't. I called the Doctor & was seen & told that my condition was not improving & I would need surgery immediately but I would have to travel to Florida to have the surgery being that it's not done in the Virgin Islands. I've gone to several Orthopedic Doctors in hopes of hearing something different, but I hear the same thing from all. Ive been walking with a cane since July & the pain is getting unbearable. I've been taking pain medication but the pain is so severe the the medications don't seem to be working anymore. This is hard for me to ask for your help but I have no other way of raising some of the money for my surgery. I greatly appreciate anything you can give to help me with it means a lot to me. Thank you so much.
