Help Khyliegh's Spine Crisis

Khyliegh, my wife, was born with a degenerative spine disease that leaves her with a very low amount of spinal fluid. Spinal fluid is important for everyday living,  but especially important for pressure or impact upon the back.  Falls and accidents are very dangerous for those with the condition my wife has. Unfortunately, that is exactly what happenned to her.

In September 2016 Khyliegh was riding in a car with her sister, when a drunk driver ran a red light, and hit her sister's car. The impact of the collision herniated a disc in her spine. The pressure on her spinal nerves caused her immense daily pain, and despite physical therapy and drug treatment, surgery became the only viable option. 

Her and I were to be married after the operation in the hopes that she would recover well. We hoped that we would be able to live happily together. We were married, and are loving being married, but her recovery is not going as well.

Weeks after her operation, she fell on some slippery ice and reherniated her disc. She spent the next weeks uncertain as to what was to be done. She retried physical therapy, tried a steroid injection, tried relaxing and recovering how the doctors told her, but once again, she needed to be operated on.

The operation goes through the back in an uninvasive manner, It shaves some of the herniated disc in her back to make room for the nerves. This reduces her pain immensely. This also allows her nerves time to relax, as well as time for her to strengthen her core so that she doesn't rely so heavily on her back.

Now her next operation is approaching, and the medical bills are adding up. As a newly wedded couple we didn't have much to begin with, and the expenses of another operation are beyond us.

Will you help us pay for Khyliegh's operation on her spine?
