Tom's Operation Fund

I am a former youth scholar from England who played for Bristol City from the ages 12-19. I left Bristol City aged 19 and went on to study at university for 2 years before being invited out to Melbourne to play soccer.


Whilst playing soccer on 1/07/17 i changed direction and my knee buckled. Whilst hoping that it was just my knee popping in and out, i thought it would be bad news due to the popping sound i heard.  After going straight to the doctors i was sent for an MRI scan 2 days later where the finding were that i had an acute ACL rupture with impaction fracture of the lateral femoral condyle. I also have an MCL grade 2 sprain. The surgery i require is ACL reconstruction. After waiting 4 weeks to have a consultation with a surgeon whilst not working i was hit with good news that he could book me in for surgery on the 8/08/17. The day after was when i was told that its going to cost me $3500. It is important for me to get the surgery done as soon as possible for me to be recovered in time for next season which starts in March 2018. I have to pay the cost of my operation upfront by the 5/08/17.
