The Story

I’ve endured 4 total longterm knee injuries throughout my skate career and I’m currently still recovering from my most recent one that I initially injured way back in November. It’s been a brutal recovery, resulting in constant tweaks and setbacks, and a terribly long healing process.

The MRI I got showed no ligament tears and no severe injury, but the pain I’ve felt since makes it feel as if there was. Struggling with knee pain the past few years has made it hard to skate for more than a couple hours. Unfortunately surgery won’t fix this in the long run, so it’s been suggested by Dr. Dave, a professional skate doctor in Southern California, that I get Stem Cell Therapy. It’s a regenerative form of medicine that will rebuild the damaged cartilage in both my knees. The stem cells that I would be receiving will be derived from an umbilical cord. Unfortunately, insurance will not cover this.

Now with this what feels like never-ending injury, there is nothing better out there that I could ask for. My goal is to raise $5000 and pay the remaining cost myself. I could really use your support in this. Please think about donating to help me skate again!

Thank you so much for your support. It means the world.,
