I came to the United States as a refugee from Iraq with my son, daughter, and husband in January of 2015, after losing two of my sons to the violence in my country. I have been diagnosed with a rare condition known as lipedema, which severely limits my mobility and causes significant pain in my legs. In order to correct this condition, I need a surgery known as water-jet assisted liposuction, to help repair my lymphatic system. Only five surgeons in the U.S. perform this surgery-and, fortunately, I have found a surgeon in Deleware willing to perform the procedure. This surgery would completely change my life: I would regain mobility and, for the first time in years, be pain-free.
My family and I are seeking donations towards this surgery/travel expenses. As it stands now, finances are the last barrier to getting me this critical procedure, which is not covered by health insurance.
Your help and support are incredibly appreciated.
Sameerah and the Al Badri family.
