Hello,
I have started this page in order to fund a hip operation which I desperately need in order to get back to playing the game I love. 
Its a real specialist procedure and this is why the medical costs are quite high. 

I'm a footballer for Charlton Athletic and not only that, I am an incredibly active person. At the moment I am hardly able to walk for a prolonged period without being in pain or do anything that makes me feel like me. 

I can't articulate how much football means to me. It is my lifeblood and I am really struggling without it. 
Moreover, I need this procedure for my long term health beyond my footballing career.

I understand that things are difficult for everyone at the moment but any help you are able to give me will be so greatly appreciated. Every little helps.

Thank you so much!
