Hello, my name is Robin Huey. Back in 2001 I was in a terrible car accident. The car flipped bumper to bumper 3 times going 70 mph and was then hit by a van. I was very lucky to be alive. I fractured my coccyx, or tailbone. Since that day I have dealt with excruciating and sometimes agonizing lower back, hip, and sciatic pain shooting down the leg. At the time, I was on Medicaid, and decided to rely on that instead of filing a claim on my mother's insurance. She confided that she was afraid of her rates going up and we didn't know at the time, the severity of my problems because they didn't show up on the xrays taken in the ER. Medicaid did not want to pay for an MRI. So, I didn't get the physical therapy and care that I needed. I was a single mother with a small child and no help from the father, so I had no choice but to work and just treat my symptoms. I ended up on the "cocktail" and got addicted to Soma. Many days I wished for death, I was so miserable. Since then, I stopped taking everything but my pain medicine which I could not live without. I took some physical therapy and was given very strong narcotic pain meds which helped me to feel well enough to exercise and lose some of the weight I had gained due to my injuries. Since then the laws have gotten very strict on these narcotic pain meds and my doctor no longer wanted to prescribe them for me. As soon as that happened I gained all of the weight back and my pain has gotten worse and worse. I saw a commercial about laser spine surgery and did an online consultation and found out that they could help me, but I have no insurance and cannot work and have no way of funding it. Then I heard about GoGetFunding.com. Please help me get this surgery, so I can live a normal life and enjoy it with my family. Your good deed will not go unnoticed. Thank you so much.
