Sarah has been experiencing constant severe pain for almost a year. During the last month, the pain level has become excruciating. She met with an orthopedic surgeon in Puerto Vallarta last week, and the x-rays revealed that her left hip socket is gone and the ball joint is almost worn away and is grinding into her pelvic bone. It's so thin, that if she were to trip or fall, she would likely fracture her pelvic bone and become paralyzed. She had emergency surgery earlier this week.
She anticipates her medical bills will reach nearly $12,000 USD including: pre-surgery doctor visits, EKG and other required tests; 2-3 day hospital stay, surgeon, anesthesiologist, nurses and special hip prosthesis; post-surgery therapy, medication, trips to/from Puerto Vallarta for follow-up doctor visits; as well as the cost of a 1st-floor rental without stairs for 3-4 weeks.
Sarah has done so much for the Jaltemba Bay community, and she now needs our help. This is an opportunity for us to give back to her for all she's done.
