Currently, one of my lungs is almost completely crushed because of the curvature of my spine and ribs. I have lost almost all function in this lung, and have limited airflow in my second lung. Completing simple tasks, walking, and my daily livelihood has become compromised because of the advanced progression of my scoliosis. At my current rate, without this surgery my life expectancy is drastically shortened.
Any money collected from this GoFundMe will cover my medical expenses for the surgery, in addition to the rehabilitation needed prior and post-surgery. Below is some information about my condition, including the medical expenses we have been quoted for. I have also included pictures of my x-rays, and you can see the extreme nature of my scoliosis and how the curvature is affecting my inner organs. Additionally, there is a letter from Dr. Lenke outlining my case and the haste needed to undergo this medically necessary procedure.
Please help save my life and heal my spine. Any donation is greatly appreciated and has the potential to completely fund the campaign.
