This fund is for the purchase of an inversion machine to help this grandmother avoid a potentially disabling surgery.

I am in need of an inversion machine to help avoid an unwanted, unaffordable back surgery. I have had 2 previous back surgeries and was told another may make it impossible for me to walk. I'm a wife, mother & grandmother of 7 who is raising one grandchild and caring for another during the day.

I recently had bladder/colon prolapse surgery that caused additional back strain. This in turn caused a herniated disc to become very inflamed. My doctor has said that traction will most likely keep me from having surgery. Insurance won't pay for traction, which is very expensive. They also won't pay for an inversion machine, but my doctors feel that this is a fantastic alternative that may keep me from needing an additional surgery.

I'm in so much pain all of the time, and I work hard to not let it affect how I treat my loved ones. Trying to be a cheerful grandma while maintaining a pain level of 9-10 has been difficult.

If you can help, even with a small amount, it will be greatly appreciated and can change my life. My grandchildren can have their grandma back and able to spend time playing with them; coloring, putting together leggos, acting as a spotter while they climb on the monkey bars, etc. I'd love to be able to walk short distances and sit for 45 minutes (without being in pain and wanting to cry) so that I can watch my 5 year old grandson's t-ball game.

The funds raised will be used solely for the purchase of an inversion machine and pay for the cost of shipping to my home. If there happens to be any funds left over, they will be donated to someone else at this website.

Please....won't you support me in purchasing this medical treatment item?
