My name is Danielle 'Glossy' Cullen. I must have surgery to repair my hip. My insurance company will only cover part of the procedure. With the added expenses of copays and equipment, I am unable to meet the entire cost. Please help! GOD bless!

About a year ago, I sustained a knee injury.  After undergoing surgery , I found out through the rehab process that my hip was actually injured as well. I went to a surgeon who then referred me to pain specialist.  After pain injections, several MRIs and X-Rays, I have a labral tear which can only be repaired with surgery.

Unfortunately my hip pain hinders me from work-related and day to day activities.  I can no longer play sports or participate in extensive exercise. Carrying groceries and my work supplies is now a task.  Climbing stairs, standing and sitting for extended periods of time irritate my condition.

I am currently a physical therapist. I have dedicated my life to the well being and helping of others.  I know the importance of mobility throughout the lifespan.  I envision myself as Fit for Life!  Right now, I am missing the mark and need to do something about my situation.

I am reaching out to my friends, family and others because my insurance will not cover the entire cost.  The longer I wait for this procedure, I more pain and discomfort I bear.  I have already fallen down the stairs and am finding it increasingly difficult to assist my patients at work.  In order to help them I must squat, lift, stair climb and walk.  All of these activities often increase my pain.

Those who know me will agree I rarely ask for assistance.  I am usually the one who gives to those in need. But due to lack of finances and resources I am forced to find other means to handle this situation.

Whatever you are able to give will be greatly appreciated!!!  If you are unable to give monetarily, please offer up prayers, positive thoughts or energy on my behalf!!!  GOD bless you!!!  Thank you for your support!!!

If a portion of the donations remains after my medical bills have been paid, I will donate all of the proceeds to an organization where my coworker, Judy, volunteers, Global Therapy Group,  This organization provides rehabilitation services and equipment to those in need at the Haiti Community Hospital in Petion-Ville, Haiti!

Thank you again!!!
