In 2003, the arthritis in her right hip became so bad that she had to have an invasive surgical procedure done known as hip resurfacing. As technology and medical research has progressed, we've now learned that she was never a good candidate for that procedure. It has failed her and arthritis has taken over her other hip as well.
The pain has become so unbearable that she has lost all mobility, is confined to a wheelchair, and is in desperate need of immediate emergency double hip replacement surgery.
She has been seen by one of the best known and most trusted doctors in Nashville at St. Thomas Hospital who wants to perform a double hip replacement on her as soon as possible. He has generously offered to waive his fee and do the surgery for free for her, but that is only a small portion of the cost of the procedure.
Here's a rough breakdown of what is needed (we're still waiting on a final cost breakdown from the hospital)...
- $46,000 hospital fee
- anesthesia fee
- lab work fee
- pre- and post- doctor appointments
- money for bills while she is out of work
- cost of months of physical therapy
- $2,000 to cover years of medical debt
- Emergency Room bill
- wheelchair rental
- other unforeseen costs that will arise
$100,000 should be enough to cover the above listed fees and get her out of debt and back on her feet (literally)!
Any amount you can contribute will help.
If you know Tiffany, you know she would do anything to help her friends, and rarely asks for help back. This is a very tangible way that we can join together and help her in this challenging season of her life.
Please spread the word and prayerfully contribute as much as you can. Thanks so much!
Also, make sure to tell her on Facebook and Twitter (@tiffanyrockhold) that you love her and are praying for her!
