This is the Christine Currie Spinal Fusion Fund. The Funds will be used to defray medical costs not covered by insurance. Please help!

My mom has been getting worse and worse and has to walk with a cane. She is in severe pain all the time and can't do things that she likes to do anymore! Spinal Fusion surgery is scheduled for March 11 but we have many medical expenses and travel expenses that we cannot afford. This surgery is called MULTI LEVEL SPINAL FUSION and will fuse 16 vertabrae from T4 to S1. This is basically from between the shoulder blades to the hip bone. A T-Rod will be placed next to her spine to straighten it out. We live in Central Maine and must travel to Boston ( where the surgery will take place) often and it is very expensive. Mom has not been able to work for about 10 years and Dad is a seasonal worker so money is always tight! I go to school full time and try and help as much as I can...This surgery and 3-4 week hospital stay is going to be around $200,000.!!! Not to mention other expenses. We have partial insurance but there are co-pays and deductables and non-covered services not to mention travel etc...We would all be so grateful for whatever help you can give to help my MOM get back to normal. Thank you and God Bless You!
