!Hello everyone. My name is Polina and I am from Russia. I am here because I am looking for help. My mother has recently discovered a lump on her ancle and was diagnosed with a Bekker cyst which requires a surgery and now she is not able to walk at all because it causes so much pain. She is only 59 and full of life and energy and this is something that none of us saw coming! In Russia this type of surgery is not covered by our medical insurance so we need to pay for it and for the post -op period. The total cost of the surgery is ~8000 Eur (if you exchange into Euros from Russian rubles). I was able to get my savings out but we are still missing a big chunk. I am a single mom of two and working hard with a good job but we just are not able to get any extra money for that. So I have decided to come here and look for help. I do believe in good things and miracles. And we are positive that we can make mom walk again. Thank you in advance for all who will help! It does mean a lot! I know that it might seem as a “lazy” option out-it’s my mom and her ability to live a full live but it seems that in Russia it’s impossible to have a good life without paying a lot of money for it. Don’t get me wrong-I am not a person who just sits here and waits for the money to end up in my account. I am a really hard worker . But this time it’s just seems too much... so I do hope that I will be able to find this life saving surgery for my mom and make her to be the best granny for my kids!
