Since I began unobtrusive lucidity almost five years ago (wow, has it been that long?), I could count on one hand the number of times I’ve suggested that my readers give money to a cause, much less to a person. That’s just not the reason I have this space. However, there are occasional exceptions.
My friend, Cris, is in need of a critical back surgery very soon. Her condition risks serious complications, and the surgery is scheduled for the very near future. However, our health insurance system being as ludicrous as it is in the U.S., she must find some way to raise most of the six-figure cost of the surgery herself, as her insurance will not cover what may save her life (after all, only the wealthy deserve to be healthy here, right?).
She describes the procedure, her history, and provides a way to donate via PayPal at her site, which you can find here (for any of my readers who may ascribe to a different faith, I’ll let you know up front that this is an overtly Christian site). If you have some extra money and could assist my friend in affording what may literally be a life-saving surgery for her, I would be most appreciative. If you cannot, your prayers and thoughts will be most appreciated, as well.
You can also email Cris directly for more information if you’d like.
