Hello my name is Chris, I would like to thank everyone for taking the time to read about this situation and possibly assist me with our request. I want to keep it short to the point.
My son in law, Kasey will need at least $7000 to cover the cost of knee surgery. The injury occurred about three weeks ago when he was walking his dog along the edge of a lake here in Texas. The dog pulled hard and he fell into a 3 foot deep type of a sinkhole. He is still in a lot of pain today, the swelling in the left knee remains. X Rays show damage which needs surgery.
We have paid $500 for the X Rays and the first medical appointment with an Orthopedic Surgeon. He also needs an MRI. I would help further, but I am 60 and only make so much each month. Kasey is a single parent and has an amazing 8 year old son, he does everything he can to raise him with what he makes. We help as much as possible, watch him in our home, take him to school, pick him up, take him to his soccer practice and games.
Kasey is employed as a Sous Chef in a decent restaurant, but doesn’t get paid what he is worth. No healthcare is provided by his employer. The owner doesn’t care about the injury, and still demands he come in to work, which he has because he has bills to pay. He has a knee brace on and stands on one leg in pain the whole shift. Prior to the injury he was working 60 hours a week. Now he barely makes it 30 hours a week. There is no option for unemployment or temporary disability pay here in Texas.
I am asking for $7000.00, but any small amount would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much for taking the time to read about our situation.
