Kaityns knee part 2 Campaign
Here we go again, round 2 of having to have knee surgery, as a single mother and my very special 17 year daughter Kaitlyn is in need of having surgery on her knee due to a torn meniscus again.
We are not on a medical aid and I am doing the very very best I can to ensure that she can have the surgery as soon a possible as the surgeon says it needs to be done as a matter of urgency.
It is important for her to have the surgery as her knee locks into a certain position and has to wait for it to "do its thing" and then from there she can continue to walk. Eventually if she does not have the surgery it could lead to the knee locking up completely and will need to have more extensive surgery. So, to prevent this from happening further we need to have the surgery done.
All funds will go to the surgeon, day hospital and the anaesthetist for her to have the surgery.
Kaitlyn has pain daily and the only thing that helps her is taking pain medication which is not something that she can on an ongoing basis.
Kaitlyn is unfortunately not able to continue in her training with Krav Maga and will not be able to further her training until this has been sorted out. She has also been told to be aware of how she walks. She is not allowed to stretch, skip, hop or jump as this will cause more damage.
Please I ask you to please assist me in getting the funds to help my Kaitlyn so she can continue living her life as a teen should.
