Poor Reva is quite broken and needs help!
Reva has a torn cruciate ligament (ACL) in her right knee, a ruptured medial patellar ligament in the same knee, and severe chronic changes to right hip indicating she may have had an old fracture that has now essentially created it’s own repair. However, it’s very possible that surgery will be required to fix the hip so as she ages she does not have chronic pain.
The hip does not need surgery at this time. We’re going to wait and see how she moves on it. Her knee does need surgery as soon as possible though.
$1000 will cover the cost of Reva’s hugely discounted knee surgery and on the road to healing and feeling better!
