Help Save Her Vision

Hello everyone,

My name is Katly Cruz, my mom, Silvia Cruz has diabetic glaucoma in both her eyes since 2015. On 09/08, my mom was complaining about her vision going in and out with the only eye she has left working (L side) in the evening. We made an appointment for her on Monday morning 09/11 but since Tropical Storm Irma hit, they cancelled all appointments due to the weather. Thru the weekend, it kept getting worse and worse. On Tuesday, 09/12, her retina specialist said that her eye went from having vision to low to all vision loss. We went back to her glaucoma specialist that same day and she needs tube-shunt surgery in her L eye to save the bit of color and light she has. The cost of the surgery is about $5000.00. We have an appointment on Monday, 09/18 to see her glaucoma specialist again and determine when her sugery will be. If you can help, please anything is enough. And we will always been in debt with you.
