Hello everyone,

My name is Michelle, I am 29 years old and I was born with a rare genetic condition called spondylometaphyseal dysplasia Kozlowski type, which is characterized by abnormal growth of the spine, hips and knees. Due to this genetic mutation my femur heads did not develop properly and they resulted in a bone deformity that has made me suffer from stage 4 osteoarthritis, (which is the most severe stage) from a very early age. As a result, I have had to endure excruciating pain that is currently impeding me from doing daily activities such as going up and down the stairs, sitting down and getting up, as well as bathing and sleeping.

I need your support for a total hip replacement

Today I am asking for your help in order to be able to get a total hip replacement, a procedure that will help massively improve my quality of life. This is only the first stage of my campaign where a minimum of $1,500 USD. needs to be raised. With your help I would be able to reach that goal much faster and that would allow me to move to the second stage where I would start working towards the real target needed for full treatment, which is $50,000 USD.

My family has been able to cover several surgeries until now, as well as being able to take care of the major expenses that the hip replacement that I got on my left hip implied; however, we need help in order for me to get my right hip replaced since we no longer have enough funds. Given that this is a birth defect no insurance company will cover neither the surgery nor anything related to it.

Thank you for your help!

My family and I would deeply appreciate it if you could support us by helping take care of the financial burden that needing a second surgery entails. Through your donations we would be able to cover the hospital stay, physical therapy sessions, in addition to anything related to the recovery process.

If there are any funds still available at the end of treatment, they will be used to help another family/person pay for their treatment.

Thank you for your help!
