As many of you know Tania was recently diagnosed with a hernia that continues to herniate. She is in constant pain. It hurts her to sit, drive, walk basically do anything, not to mention the stress of how she is going to pay for this all. She is currently working three part time jobs to support herself along with her daughter Amanda none of which offer health insurance. She spoke with Medi-Cal and they are not seeing any new patients until February, which would push her surgery date way out and possibly may not qualify. Her doctor has given her strict orders not to work because she uses her abdominal muscles. She teaches Pilates, Yoga and dance. Her entire life is being disrupted not to mention the pain and stress she is feeling both mentally and psychically.

Tania went to the ER on Sunday only to be sent away because she wasn't dying. The doctor did however advise her she would need surgery very soon or she will develop more complications. The cost for the procedure alone is $3-$4000. not including hospital stay. For now, she has to push her intestines in 15-20 times a day!! Tania needs this surgery NOW. She can not afford to wait any longer!!

This is where WE HER FRIENDS step in and HELP!!!

Normally Tania would be out busting her a@@ to earn this money herself teaching additional Pilates classes. But as you can see she can't. The only reason she agreed to this fundraiser is if she can give back to everyone who donates. She is offering everyone who contributes $100. or more 5 Musical Theater workshops for children and teens or 6 Pilates classes both valued at $100. For those who contribute $15. or more she is offering a free group Pilates class when she is better.

Tania needs us. She would be there in a second for any of us in need. Let's help her to get this surgery so she can work and provide for her daughter and not have this daily pain she's going through.

If we all pitched in $20. each she could have the money for surgery in no time!! This site is very safe and secure. I've used it and trust it entirely.
