Look at My Daughter.. She Needs Help..

dids03
This is my eldest daughter, Candid. She’s 17 years old taking up Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication. Last July 24, she twisted her right  knee in her Physical Education class. Though the x-ray, taken at the school clinic, showed no bone fracture, she was not able to go to school for a week due to extreme pain. But she finally managed to stand up alone and limp her way to class with knee support.
Two weeks after the incident, the school clinic released her x-ray result with an order that she see an Orthopedic surgeon. So, we went to see an Ortho surgeon. After checking my daughter’s knee, the surgeon wrote a request for MRI.
Last Saturday, I went to see the Ortho surgeon alone. With me was my daughter’s MRI result with the following findings:
1. Partial tear, anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments.
2. Complex tear, posterior horn of the medial meniscus.
3. Horizontal tear, posterior horn of the lateral meniscus.
4. Bone contusion, lateral femoral condyle
5. Minimal knee joint effusion.
Candid's Injury03
The Ortho surgeon told me my daughter needs to undergo Arthroscopic Meniscectomy to repair the damage. The surgery, though not dangerous and would only take shorter period of time compared with major operations, is extremely expensive. It is about ten times my monthly salary in my previous job.
Right now, my daughter limps and her right thigh is already thinner than the left, probably due to minimal use. She can’t stand straight and she is in pain every waking moment. The pain intensifies when she gets tired, she walks up and down the stairs, she gets surprised or she feels cold. But sometimes the pain intensifies for no reason at all.
Nothing hurts a mother so much than to see her child in pain. And I see her in pain every day and witness her legs getting more and more deformed. And I began to think of the things she could no longer do like play football, run the marathon or even simply run around the park with friends. My heart aches and I desperately want to have her knee fixed. But we simply couldn’t afford it. We need help from friends.
So, I am reaching out to you. Please, help us. I know there are thousands of people out there who need help just like us, but I have to take my chance. I have to try..
Thank you so much and may GOD bless you and your family always..

Hi Arvin,
The last time I heard from Kimmy is that so many have responded to her call for financial assistance and I have no doubt that the operation will push through. I hope and pray that it will be successful. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.
