Kyle's Spinal Surgery Fund
My family has been informed that surgery is needed and while it will not guarantee a full recovery, there is hope it will help. The healthcare system in St. Lucia is different from that in the U.S. The total cost of the surgery will be approximately $42,000 E.C. (~16,000 U.S. dollars) and the surgeons are asking for at least $29,000 E.C. (~11,000 U.S. dollars) upfront before doing the surgery. My aunt (his mom) has gone to the insurance company everyday for the past week and a half and has had no luck in determining if they will be able to help offset the cost.
We will be approaching two weeks since the accident and it is critical he has the surgery soon. The more time that passes, the less likely for recovery.
Thus, I have started this fundraiser to help my family offset some of those costs. Anything you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Kyle and his girlfriend recently had a baby girl, Kayan, in August and she has been the light of his life. I understand if you can't provide financially. But, I do ask for you prayers and well wishes to keep Kyle strong, stable, and his spirits uplifted so he can pull through for his family.
I am so incredibly grateful and this surgery wouldn't be happening without you. A lot of funds came from this site. I am going to still try to reach the $5000 as this is a long road and every bit will help.
Again, truly, thank you SO much! I am asking for you prayers and positive thoughts as Kyle undergoes surgery tomorrow. Thank you!
I have found out that I can keep the website up, even after I withdraw, so please feel free to keep sharing. Maybe we can reach that $5,000 goal! Half way there!
I will be the one withdrawing the money and sending to my aunt (Kyle's mom) to pay the surgeons. Rest assured, every penny from this fund will be going toward's Kyle!
It's been two weeks since the accident. I am feeling hopeful that the surgery will happen soon! Again, thank you everyone for your positive words, thoughts, and prayers! I will continue to update.
