I started my journey in Australia last May 2016 as a student with the biggest dreams just like everyone else. It was very difficult because i have to work hard in order for me to pay bills. Though living here is tough and a challenge. I am still hopeful and in positive spirit until I injured my back last June 2017, leaving me in extreme and agonizing pain. Since then life has been very difficult, i cant work properly nor I'm able to go to school. I have been off work for many weeks now leaving me depressed and thinking of how i am going to survive my day to day living here in Australia. I had three agonizing and painful flare ups on different occasions, one of which became very serious that made me bedridden and unable to walk and stand for a month. The pain was so severely debilitating radiating from my lower L5/S1 down to my left leg making it numb. As of now i am surviving with my day to day needs through the help and generosity of my friends and family since i cannot walk and stand leaving me unable to work. I was also deferred from my studies for two terms and now my dreams are perilously close to failing. I have filed for a work cover but unfortunately it was declined due to a very vague reason of date. I was heartbroken but i am still hopeful. I filed for an independent review from WIRO and i am still waiting for the result. However, with my deplorable conditon and the excruciating pain that I am currently experiencing... A surgery is amust to avoid complications on spine. Upon consultation with the doctor the surgery will cost $23,000.00 AUD exclusive of the laboratory test and medications. I am humbly knocking to ur doors to extend a helping hand in my lowest time.. i am hopeful and praying to our Lord Almighty that you can help me fund my surgery.. this means a lot for me, any kind of help is appreciated.
