My name is Emmanuel Mariano, I am 38 years old, living in Manila Philippines. I'm a father of two beautiful children and a single dad. I was diagnozed with Osteomyelitis at an early age of 2 years old. My right leg is 3 inches shorter than the left one. I am basically having trouble walking and standing. And my doctor says that when I get older it will be impossible for me to walk and stand. So I am here to ask for your help to fund my upcoming knee operation and recovery. I will be forever grateful if you could help me out.
Osteomyelitis is an infection of the bone, a rare but serious condition. Bones can become infected in a number of ways: Infection in one part of the body may spread through the bloodstream into the bone, or an open fracture or surgery may expose the bone to infection.
In my case, the infection spread to my right knee and shrink my knee cap and shorten my right leg by 3 inches. I lost 70 percent of the strength of my right leg. And because my legs are not equal in length my spine is curved and I am developing Scoliosis. My back hurts alot when I am forced to walk and stand for a long time. My doctor will perform a knee implant that will help with my walking. I know there are many good people that is willing to help me out. Good Bless. And Thank you very much.
