Unexpected Knee Replacement

A year ago I had to get knee replacement surgery for my arthritic knee.  

That's taken a very big reverse. There are no guarantees, and the bottom plate of that new knee has come loose. The only fix is to have total knee replacement. I've had to cut back on part-time work because of the new pain level, and my wife is at the end of available pay to the outgoing bills. She has insurance included in the bills.

I don't know very many people, and to expect small contributions seems a miracle in itself. Each day I'm risked a fracture of the bone where that plate had come loose, and if that happened, I would have been in very deep trouble with this medical emergency.

If anyone can help, please know small amounts add up. Anything is relief.

I need help, I'm up against very serious recovery. Please consider me.

Note: Today is July 1st, 2018 and I am still trying to raise funds. I had the revision surgery April 26th. I'm doing OK. 

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Rick Nelson
