Hi! My name is Megan Babcock. I am the daughter of an incredible man named Mark Babcock. He is in terrible need of help- and he won't ask for it himself. That's why I'm here. Every day, I watch him suffer. Every day, he carries on, despite being in debilitating pain. 20 years ago, a slipped vertebral disc required surgery- he had a plate installed in his back. Now, around the same area, he has a collapsed vertebrae in his spinal column. His pain comes in waves, and it comes wether or not he expects it. I know surgery will cost a lot, and he is in no position to put himself into debt. Unfortunately, he has no choice but to go into surgery to have relief. Please, if you have anything to spare, he needs every dollar. He deserves to reap the reward of his lifetime of nonstop work (he has worked full time since 16 years of age) and live his golden years without this debilitating condition.
