Hello I’m Melina or CarmenMarie legal name and a disabled teacher since 2010 on disability for serious illness leaving me unable to stand or work much or drive much. I’ve survived 25 d surgeries and three time survivor but difficult as a single mother raising three kids. I worked earn my degrees and work even with a disability and raise kids and earn my MA for permanent certification teaching languages. I paid my student loans till 2018.
because I’ve
been struggling with serious medical issues I’m in need of help to cover his many expenses.
Nikko has been my lifeline my support my everything and just heartbroken he has to have surgery or not survive as a paralyzed dog with the hopes that with surgery he’s able to get back ton80% function and not suffer. We drove two hours at midnight to get to Cornell Veteranary Hospital
Ithaca NY and he will be here a few days and recover.
his expenses are $8,000 for the surgery
