Knee Surgery for Mom

My mom, Tracie Dean, is in need of knee surgery due to bone on bone grinding in her shin. She is in a lot of pain and has continued to truck on, she has put aside her medical needs to care for my dads surgeries and doctors appointment that he has needed over the years.  Mom puts herself on the back burner to care for everyone else and hasn’t had a second thought about it.  Mom is working 40 hours a week to support the two of them with the help of Dads retirement which doesn’t leave much to cover medical expenses.

insurance company will only pay for 50-60% of cost with a 7,000 deductible. 
If you can help out in any way it would be greatly appreciated. It would mean the world to her that her friends and family came together to help get this surgery.  Thank you for taking the time to read this.
