Tracy is getting hip surgery

Hi everyone!  

For those of you that may not know Tracy, and for those who do but may not know this, let me tell you a little about her.  She has always had a heart of gold, going out of her way to help those in need. All her life she has been donating her free time (which doesn't really exist) to helping others. Whether it has been fostering animals, volunteering her time at orphanages in Africa, helping the homeless here in the United States, and even donating her kidney to a complete stranger...she is always putting other people before herself!  These are just a few examples of the many selfless things she has done.

Now Tracy is in need of our help.  She has to have surgery on both of her hips to fix a hip impingement and labral tear.  She has been in pain for several years, and has tried PT and injections with no relief.  The first surgery is being planned for December 23rd and the following in February of next year, and she will be out of work for 5 months.  Luckily, a majority of the surgery and post care is being covered.  She is asking for your donations to help her with rent, utilities, groceries, and pet food.

Lets help her get through this tough time so she can get back to being active, but pain free and doing the things she loves!

Thank you all so much for all of your support!!51445326_1601563394384847_r.jpeg51445326_1601563436934414_r.jpeg51445326_1601563452870281_r.jpeg51445326_1601563482891642_r.jpeg
