Help Benny walk again

My name is Benny "the jet" Rodrigues and I have a bilateral ACL tears. From a young age I grew up at the beach where I spent every day until dark chasing my tennis ball into the ocean and running down the beach with my dad. I tore my right ACL traumatically and cannot put weight on my right paw. A few weeks later during my pre-op consult we found out my left ACL is also torn because the doctor said it was working too hard for the other knee. After years of running I can barely get off the floor when lying down and cannot walk without a gait or limp. My mom and dad had saved as much as they could and came up with just enough for that one knee surgery. Now with this news, they have to do both surgeries and are scrambling to find the funds to match the 6500 in total surgical fees. I come to you humbly and with the upmost appreciation in asking you to please help me be able to walk again.

Any donation no matter the amount will help enormously. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
