I am seeking financial assistance to purchase a new prosthetic leg; I lost my leg in a bad motor vehicle accident nine years ago. The prosthetic device that I am currently using has done it’s time and needs to be replaced urgently. However, I am challenged with a huge financial burden to gather the funds together out of pocket. I am asking you for help in this time of demise, as I am unable to walk and continue with daily tasks in life. I am currently using crutches to move around and unable to drive. I also have three children who are depending on me to provide for them. The cost of a new prosthetic device is 55,000.00 USD. That includes a new prosthetic liner, a new prosthetic socket, a new prosthetic knee component and a new prosthetic foot component along with a month of customizations, tweaks and servicing to have my gate perfected as natural as possible. I would still have to purchase plane tickets to go to NY urgently to have all of this work done at the prosthetic company based in Long Island; I would not need accommodations, as I would be able to bunk with my aunt on her couch.
Any help that you can assist me with, would be greatly appreciated. This would help me to get back to regular daily living and resume my job. Maybe I may even be able to continue my athletic career as an amputee sprinter. I would like to share an amazing fun fact; I competed in the London 2012 Paralympics as a t42 sprinter in both 100m and 200m events. I was only able to make it to the semi-finals but I have aspirations of competing in the Tokyo 2020 games this year. All of those goals are currently shattered with this major setback. I really look forward to your help. I know it is a large sum of money but unfortunately that is the price that we as amputees have to pay to be fitted with a decent, reliable prosthetic. I have no insurance coverage for this device so I am forced to pay for it in its entirety out of pocket.
Once again, I hope you find it in your heart to help me out and if you do, I am thanking you in advice for this thoughtful gesture. Blessings for taking the time out to help someone who is in genuine need.
