Shoulder surgery bills help

In the summer of 2015, I had suffered an injury to my shoulder.  I was away on vacation. My dad and I had gone for a walk.  We were walking down  the stairs. My dad took a stumble and went to grab him by holding up my arm. He grabbed my arm and I brought my shoulder up to keep him from falling.   After that moment, that's when my shoulder started to hurt.

I gave it some time thinking it was maybe just a sprain. After some time went by, the pain was not going away. That's when I went to an orthopedist. After a couple a cortisone shots and finally an MRI.  It showed that I had a slight tear which was producing liquid in my shoulder.  Unfortunately, I was told I needed to get surgery.

Fast forward to now,  after months of doctors follow ups & 5 1/2 months of physical therapy. Insurance couldn't pay a good chunk of it (much to my dismay).  Which left me with a pretty hefty medical bill.

I tried paying as much of it on my own as possible before asking for help but now I'm really struggling to keep up with that and pay my other bills as well.  This was a last resort for me.

So, if anyone out there can help me out with helping me pay this off. Even if its $1, $5, whatever you can donate.  Great things will come your way. I just know it.

I just don't know what else to do. I just really want to pay off this surgery and it looks like its never going down.....

Thank you everyone. Words can't even describe the thanks and gratitude that I have for those reading this.

The picture below is my MRI and me after post op trying to keep positive for my journey ahead.
