Hi. My name is Cherry, I am a 28 year old girl from Batangas, Phillipines where I live with my parents, 4 younger brothers and 1 sister. In February 2012, a car hit me on my side when I was a passenger in a vehicle. My legs took the majority of the impact of the accident and as a result they were crushed. I was taken to hospital where the doctors performed an external fixation and bone graft surgery in an attempt to fully reconstruct both my leg bones. Since this time I have had 2 further surgeries of the same kind. The results of the surgeries has only been of partial success as the doctors say it is still not completely healed and its therefore “atropic non union” and requires a further 2 more surgeries as there is still a gap where the bone has still not fused and healed. The reason for this is because the soft tissue was also damaged and there was no blood supply which impaired the healing process.
The doctors have said they will put tibia nails and bone cement to mold my bone to my fractured leg then after 6 weeks, they will remove the bone cement and do bone grafting and they will do something for the damaged tissue so that it will be more successful. If it will be successful and no problem will occur, I won’t need to have further surgery. The surgery will be done at the Philippine Orthopaedic Centre in Quezon City, Manila https://www.google.com.au/?gws_rd=ssl#q=philippine+orthopedic+center&lrd=0x3397b613369b97b1:0xf043e9f8bd18b7d6,1 / http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philippine_Orthope...
For the last 3 years, the accident has caused me significant pain and suffering especially when I had the nails and rods inserted, i endured many sleepless nights because of the pain and it caused me much depression. I am unable to walk unaided, drive a car, or do anything a young person my age should be able to do.
I have dreams of finishing my studies to be an accountant, get married and have a family. To do this, I want to be able to walk. I’m asking your kindness to help me pay for this surgery so that I can achieve my dreams in life and contribute to society. Even a small amount will help me. Sharing this on your Facebook will also help me as the more people hear my story the more likely I am to raise the money for my surgery. Thank you in advance.
