I have an Aunt who lives on a limited income who has been living with Fibromyalgia and Osteo Arthritis for 11 years and has been getting cortisone injections which has accelerated the disease and does not work anymore she takes 800 milligrams of Motrin and Aleve she can only walk for 120 seconds the cartilage in her knee is gone and as you can imagine the pain is excruciating! The VA doctors told her this is only seen in elderly patients and knee replacement surgery is never done on someone as young as 42 and it would have to deteriorate even more too even begin to think of doing the surgery which she can not afford. I have been emailing and calling agencies/organizations/missions/churches in the U.S.A. as well as other countries trying to get a doctor who will do the surgery on my Aunt we both see on the television everyday someone getting free surgery done by wonderful doctors or missions for people who could not otherwise afford it all around the world. Please help my Aunt get knee replacement surgery all she wants is to continue to raise her children and be pain free with a fair chance at a quality life at age 42 as you and I have. If you can't help her please forward this email to someone who can.
