I'm Lee Ford, member of the 2013 Para Archery World Championships team, and I need some help with my travel to Worlds in Bangkok, because the flight time is going to put me in tons of pain and unable to stand!

Buying United miles seems to be the cheapest route, and it's 60,000 miles and $1200 to be able to upgrade to a seat that lays down so it doesn't feel like my tailbone is coming through my skin when I get done the 21 hour flight from San Francisco to Bangkok. It's total travel time of 28 hours! Donating miles to my account would actually cost my friends more money in fees than is worth it. According to the United site, to buy the additional 47,000 miles I need, the cost with tax is $1768.38, plus a fee of $1,200 to upgrade the seat. It;s not that bad when you realize that that it's all my seats, round trip. I just don't have the miles saved up. Please help this Paralympian out, I want to come home with GOLD and you can all be a part of Team Ford!!!
