A message from my 10-year-old niece...
My sister Mony needs our support to finish covering the expenses for a surgery that will be a game changer for her health after YEARS - and a global pandemic - of waiting and uncertainty. I'm helping my 10-year-old niece to organise a fundraising campaign in support of her mom. Here is her message:
Hi! Please help me support my mommy's tummy surgery expenses that her insurance won't cover. Years ago, mommy developed a DIASTASIS RECTI that got worse after giving birth to my baby brother. This causes her belly to stick out and expose her organs (they call this UMBILICAL HERNIA) because her tummy muscles have torn so they are all wonky and the space between them has widened about 17cm!!! This has made my mommy's abdomen weak and causes a lot of pain in her back and legs, and even a bit of pee incontinence. On top of that, my mommy has tons of allergies and a debilitating neurological and circulatory condition called DYSAUTONOMIA which makes her feel faint, lightheaded, palpitations and keeps her from functioning and getting from bed some days. She's actually got two types of it, VASOVAGAL and NEUROCARDIOGENIC SYNCOPES so she will need special care during the diastasis recti and umbilical hernia surgery because they need special anaesthesia, painkillers (she cannot take the usual ones), types of stitches and the mesh that they will put in her stomach. Please donate if you can and help me spread the word!
