Please Help This Single Mother With Large Medical Bill After Spinal Injury

My Story:

I am a single mom to my awesome 12 year old son who is very active in school and sports. He plays both football and traveling hockey which keeps me on my toes. We currently rent a room from my dad, who is amazing and caring. I am trying to save to move into our own place, which has been drastically delayed due to my medical issues and emergencies this year.

Earlier this year I injured my cervical spine and needed steroid injections plus many many doctor visits. In July I took a nasty spill down a steep flight of stairs at home which caused me to be admitted to the hospital for a Cervical Spinal Fusion surgery due to the damage. I spent a week in the hospital. Recovery was initially expected to be 4-6 weeks, but I am now going on 3 months without being able to work. Two weeks ago I was finally able to drive again and I am praying I will be returning to work soon. I now have medical bills that I cannot afford to pay without sinking further into debt. I am praying Modest Needs can help with my largest medical bill.

It would take me years to be able to pay these bills, as I still have my monthly bills to pay and need to put food on the table. Modest Needs help would relieve the major stress and anxiety I feel plus allow me to not be forced to pay monthly payments that I cannot afford in my monthly budget. The long-lasting impact on my small family would allow for my son and I to eventually move out of my father's house and into our own place. I was raised to always help others and strive to do that daily. It would mean the world to me knowing that someone was there to catch me when I was falling. I would truly appreciate any help I can receive.

As of 2018-11-30, this application has been fully funded!
