My name is alicia, I am 18 years old and a senior in high school. I started this campaign to help raise money for my mom to have surgery on her neck and back. Her insurance does not cover it and it breaks my heart to see her cry just bending over to put shoes on. She has been in so much pain for a year and finally had an MRI done which shows bone spurs between every cervical vertebrae which is narrowing her spinal canal. She also has a herniated disc pressing on the thecal sac which is causing stenosis.
I just want to see my mom smile again and be without pain. She works 2 jobs, 7 days a week, but as the sole provider for our family, she cannot come up with the money for the surgery.
