Surgery for Mateo

Hello everyone. First and for most I just want to say thank you for all of the support to those that have been there for me during these trying times. Many that know me know I have been dealing with a lot of on going health problems.I was recently diagnosed with  Lupus/fibromyalgia And had been dealing with medical/hospital visits every week, trying to find a resolution. Proper medications and many visits and help from such wonderful understanding people , we finally got on some medications/treatment that has helped me so much. Currently I am getting some life back. Very Expensive resolution but well worth it as I am here today and able to be around for my babies. And you can’t put a price on life so I just had to roll with it. My reason for creating this is I was given some devastating news that I will need another surgery as I have also been dealing with a deformation on my feet all my life and have been really having a hard time getting around and doing simple things such as walking. It’s a $10,000 procedure and my insurance is only covering $7,000 and I really need to have it done as it is affecting me from being able to walk and get around and do The simple things. I will also have to be outta work Again for sometime. I’m seeking help if anyone could please. having 4 children I was ready to take on being a daddy. Just wasn’t expecting  to deal with all of this Heath stuff all at once. And I had saved for a rainy day But my lupus/fybro issue cleaned me out financially Especially with it being in the middle of pandemic.i just want to get back to living and I’m almost there. I am asking for help to get this done so If I take time off work again I can make sure my family is taken care of. Proceeds will help with surgery medical payments/medications , utilities, food and gas to get to all my follow ups and physical therapy completed. It’s really been a challenge and I feel embarrassed to keep asking for help like this :( But at this point we really could use a hand and if not hopes, prayers and shares are definitely more then appreciated. I hope after this, I can finally get back to being the man I know I can be. A better provider for my kids. Give my wife a break from doing everything and be there for those that have been here for me, helping me stay positive and confident that yes things are bad. But time heals all wounds and this all will pass one day as long as I give it to god and not give up. I thank you all In advance. Godbless you all. Anything is appreciated. And thank you so so much.
