Ricky,28, has Kyphoscoliosis that is affecting his breathing. Please help so we can pay medical bills and daily living expenses.

UPDATE: *** We have a dr appointment on June 17th to speak to the surgery to confirm the surgery date for July 5th and to set up all of his pre-op appointments! So as of now July 5th will be the surgery!

UPDATE: *** Ricky saw a Pulmonologist in December. His ribs are now pushing on his lungs which causes his lungs not to be able to expand.


Surgery Needed for Kyphosis

Ricky has seen many physicians. He has went through numerous treatments including: physical therapy, pain management, chiropractic care, facet injenctions, traction and massage therapy. Nothing seems to help. His curvature is getting worse. He is currently at 83 degree Kyphotic curvature, which anything above 80 degrees is concidered severe. His condition is affecting his breathing, nerves, reflexes and daily function.


In order to stop the curature from continuing to a greater degree, his surgeon has reccomended Ricky to concider his options and think about having surgery. After failing all other treatment options, surgery is the only thing that will help him, before his condition gets worse.

Please help us in any way you can so we can easly face the financial burden we are going to aquire once Ricky has the operation and will not be able to work.

***OUR GOAL AMOUNT WILL HELP PAY FOR THE PROCESSING FEES FOR GIVEFORWARD.COM, COPAYS, DAILY LIVING EXPENSES, HOSPITAL BED, WALKER, HOME HEALTH AID, HOSPITAL COPAY WHILE IN HOSPITAL (COULD BE IN HOSPITAL 7-14 DAYS) AND ANY OTHER EXPENSES THAT MAY OCCUR DUE TO THE SURGERY***
