Surgery needed

$6,832 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 73 people in 1 month
Had a martial art mishap, sadly the ulna bone in left arm broke in a capoeira tournament.... my husband won't ask but help is needed... not sure how much surgery is in the U.S, won't know till Monday afternoon when he goes to see another doctor for surgery consult. ,  Had x-ray and consult already with a orthopedic doctor and he said 90% likely surgery needed to restore to full function with follow up therapy after surgery for some time..  Estimates online go up to $17,000 without insurance for just the arm surgery and then therapy costs and of course all the pre-op visits x-rays and consults.  I set costs at 10 thousand but again it could be more and it could be less, we don't know yet.

If possible to have it here in the U.S  it would be great... if not, he will fly... If you know him you know how humble he is and he won't ask, but if you can donate great and much appreciated!  This is just a link to some info on arm surgery again we won't know till Monday but need this done asap per physician.  We do have Ze on Medicaid however it's the family shared cost plan and the deductible is over $30,000 so it's useless to us for this.  

This is a link to a page I found on broken arm surgery estimate in the U.S.

Thanks for caring and your donation, it is much appreciated.  Please share this if possible.

Thank you everyone for your consideration and donations. Ze has been in the hospital in Brazil since Thursday. We decided to do surgery there instead of in the U.S as costs will be around $30,000 here if not more just for surgery and after we still need to have therapy for his arm. While doctors did the pre-ops here and there they also noticed his elbow is fractured and needs work. This was already his bad arm that he could not fully extend for years so most likely they will try to repair other issue which we think may be a torn tendon. He is scheduled for surgery Tuesday and will remain in hospital till Wednesday or Thursday next week. Luckily Mestre Museu and his family is by his side and able to check on him daily.

After surgery and recovery he will return to Brazil to remove medal pins that will be placed in his arm. Once again thank you for your donations and caring! All donations helped us very much thus far! Ze and I are both very touched by how many people have donated and reached out to him, it just confirms what I already knew in my heart that he is so loved by many. Thank you!
