Hello, my name is Alice Higgins.  I need your help for my daughter, Michelle England. Last year she was diagnosed with Degenerative Disc Disease plus a herniated disc.  She had spinal fusion surgery in the L5 and S1with a cage and screws added to stalilize the spine. She also need the L4 dic fused but the insurance company would not approve it.  She is in dire need of this second surgery.  Since the first surgery, she has developed severe nerve pain in both legs.  She has had several spinal injections and takes pain medications, but nothing helps.  She has also developed extremely low blood pressure.  She is taking medicine to raise it, but most days it runs 50-60s over 30-40s. Because of this and the pain, she spends a lot of time in bed. 
     My husband  Charlie and I are not able to help her with this.  Charlie is way past retirement age but he is still having to work.  We just do not have the extra money and it breaks our hearts.  Michelle's son, Jon, can't help either because he is out of work and trying to get back on his feet.
     Michelle and her husband Gary  are struggling terribly because she has been out of work for over a year.  She is a veteran but, as all of you know, veterans do NOT get the help that they deserve.
      She DESPERATELY needs this second surgery.  They have exhausted their savings and we can't afford to help.
     She has insurance for the major portion but not all of the out-of-pocket doctor exspenses.(deductibles, co-pays, anesthesiologists, etc.) which is a sizable amount.
     If any of you can find it in your hearts to donate even a small amount, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you and God Bless you all.
