computer for a disabled father
Joe has dealt with really bad chronic migraines since he was 14 year old, along with depression and bipolar. He has dealt with this for most of his life so he was used to it but then unfortunately 4 years ago he found out he had a condition called bilateral avascular necrosis of the fermonal head. Pretty much something cause his blood flow to the top of his leg bone to stop and the ball that goes in the hip died and deteriorated until it collapsed upon itself making it impossible to walk for more than a few feet.He went though 2 years of this horrible pain from this condition before his surgeon and medical insurance approved him for a total hip replacement surgery.
We thought thank god at least this his hips will get better and we can get back to a somewhat normal life as we knew it before. He got the surgery and was healing slowly at first but it was coming along. Then out of no where Joe said his knees were hurting, and after a few weeks of the pain not getting better we got it checked and the avascualar necrosis had spread to the joints in his knees. So now just when we we're on the cusp of getting back to our old life we have to go through the whole process over again. Not only that but due to the pain in his knees he can't do his physical therapy right for his hips so they aren't healing right either. Also hip and knee replacements in younger adults only last about 10 years so until better technology is developed He will have to get his knees and hips done alternating every 5 years.
Joe has always been there for Jaxon and I even through all the pain and problems he has had he still has been my rock. I would really like to give him something that could bring some joy to his life and one thing he has wanted for years is a good computer to play games on. He showed me the computer that he really would like to build not to long ago and that's where I got this idea. We are living check to check off of his disability because I have to stay home to help Joe take care of our son and himself and while we have a small amount of money saved it gets taken out by emergencies or one thing or another. I know It's going to take 2 years before we can get the first surgery and another 6 months to a year for the second not counting the physical therapy So it's going to be a while before we can afford a computer, that's why I've come to ask for your help.
The computer we have know is from Joe's childhood back in 2006 and is really slow. Just watching TV on it takes forever to load and when he does play video games they are really old ones because its not powerful enough to play new games. We rarely ever ask anyone for help so this feels weird but I really want to help him do something he loves and he deserves it for all he's been through. I want to thank everyone for taking the time to read this and anyone who gives god bless you and I really appreciate everything even if its small.
Here is a link to the computer Joe wants, and he also said that if anyone would rather send parts instead of cash he would be grateful for anything even if its not the parts listed. He said he can put any computer together as long as it can game he will be happy.

WOW!! This is happening so fast, I never imagined it would be so quick. I want to thank everyone for helping me get this far, I can now purchase the basics of the computer and get the build started!! I have to wait a few days for the money to be deposited and then I will buy the first pieces. The other parts I can add as more comes Thank you so much I have no words to explain my joy. When I went to bed last night we were at 180 and when I checked just hours later it had jumped up to 608 I was so excited I started yelling at Rachael to come look and was shaking, God bless everyone and I really appreciate everything we still have a bit to go before I can finish so please keep sharing so we can reach as many people as possible!!

Thanks for the info Jennifer The doctor told us that they last 10 to 15 and since we have a kid to chase around we figured it would be the former. Also I didn't mean both would have to be done every 5 I meant the hips done every 10 and knees done every 10 but since it will be a couple years before he can get his knees done it'll be 5 years after the first hip replacement. The insurance is what decided to do the hips at separate times. We wanted to do them simultaneously and the doctor told us it would be better, but the insurance wouldn't approve it until it had a total collapse and one hip was further along than the other.
Hi Joe, I'm a disabled gamer also, I understand how hard it is to build an awesome gaming rig on a tight budget. That why I use eBay to buy new parts from reputable sellers. I have seen the parts list and those prices are quite scary! I bet you can buy the close to the same parts for close to half of $1500. I'd be more than happy to help you find the parts (not asking to buy anything from me, I just want to help), I've been using eBay for nearly ten years and in addition to being a college student studying computers and networks. I bet you can build a very powerful gaming rig for around $700.
Hi joe. I have AVN as well. You may want to check in to the type of replacements you have. Now days they last anywhere from 15-30 years. Mine were both done at 23 years old then r shoulder at 23 and left shoulder 7 weeks ago at 29years old. Technology is better than it was even 5 years ago. So he would be able to get a fair amount of time out of them instead of every 5 years. Also see if you can find a dr that will do them both at the same time. One surgery, hospital, dr, anesthesia, and PT bill instead of 2.
What if someone just donated a computer? Or did you specifically want to build one?
It looks like you have now raised enough for the computer and have built it. Is that correct? Do you still need funds? What is your Facebook page url?
