My 31 year old husband needs back surgery to save him from a lifetime of pain and pills!

My husband has lower back problems. He had some sort of damage in the middle of November 2009. We are still not sure what happened to his back to cause the backpain. After several months of anti-inflammatories, pain meds, and steroids, still no improvement or relief. My husband had an MRI that showed degenerative disc disease, bulging dics and congenital spinal stenosis. He has been to see a chiropractor and physical therapist for a round of treatment. Still no improvement. He has also see a pain management doctor. The pain management doctor prescribed more medication and offered a procedure involving a series of injections. This has not offered relieve either. His final options are see a surgeon or take pills for the rest of his life just to be able to function everyday. The even more urgent problem is that my husband does nit have health insurance and is not currently able to work. All of the treatments and expenses so far have been paid out of pocket. We are not able to pay for anymore procedures. I have gottrn in touch with the laser spine institute in Tampa. They have reviewed his mri and feel that they will be able to correct his back problems. They offer a hugely discounted rate for patients without health insurance. They offer an outpatient experience into a week long process for everything from pre-op to post-op. The amount I am trying to raise is to cover all expenses such as travel, surgery, physician, medication, etc. Thank you in advance for helping up put our family back together!!!
