The road to repairing Churon’s knee

Hello everyone!!! My name is Detra Thomas and I’m in a critical situation in where I need $2,600.00 to pay for my son’s knee surgery. I’m a single mother/sole provider for 3 beautiful sons. My oldest Churon Thomas Jr. who is currently in his 3rd year of College (Jarvis Christian College) for a basketball scholarship, is needing surgery for his knee to be repaired. The procedure will include repairing his ligaments/restructuring his knee. I have completely exhausted all my funds on trying to have his knee fixed. In fact, back in August of this year, $900 was paid to have a PRP injection done to repair his knee, but that procedure was unsuccessful.
He has medical insurance, which the family deductible has been met, but there’s still an out of pocket deductible that has to be met. In all, I spent quite of bit of money trying to get his knee repaired, but I don’t know where to turn next. I normally do a good job of taking care of my boys and I don’t seek handouts, but this is a must procedure that has to get done. If my son does not get this procedure, then he will lose his basketball scholarship and will not be able to attend College. I’m thinking I must do all I can to ensure my son continues his education. His future relies on it.
So I’m here asking for your help to make this happen. Your assistance will not go in vain. You will be helping someone to continue their education and enhance their future. Thank you for taking time out to help me and my family.
