Hola amigos y amigas,
My name is Ivan. I'm a 25 year old Mexican citizen living, studying a Master degree, and working as a Spanish teacher in Hsinchu Taiwan. Those who know me know that I'm a sports guy, but I'm a passionate soccer player and soccer fan.
Unfortunately, on June of 2017, I had a motorcycle accident which has turned my life around. I suffered a tibial and fibular open fracture with a femur supra and inter condyle open comminuted fracture. Long story short, I'm lucky I'm still alive and also that I didn't get my right leg amputated after a complicated surgery.
Since then, the recovery and healing process has been very slow. But now, I've been diagnosed with ''Non-union fracture'' condition, which means the bones aren't growing back as they should. I'm in need of a second surgery to:
1. Get a metal plate on the Tibia (Since the current screws didn't help to keep it fixed)
2. Get a bone grafting procedure to replace the missing bones since they have failed to grow back
Although I have Taiwanese National Insurance and it will help me to cover a great amount of the expenses, some materials (such as the metal plate) as well as some medicines necessary for stimulating bone growing after the surgery aren't included.
I would need to pay an estimate of NT90,000 (US3000) to cover surgery costs and post treatments (medicines and rehabilitation).
This would be a tremendous help not only financially, but also emotionally. I've been dealing and covering all the expenses the best I can with this situation. I truly hope and wish, from the bottom of my heart, that I would be able to walk again, and even better, to play soccer again, and I need this surgery to give a step forward towards achieving that goal of getting back on my feet to kick some balls.
May life, the universe, the force and God bless you all for your generosity. Best wishes to all and each one of you. I will be forever grateful!
Muchas gracias! Thank you very much!
