Claudia grew up in Michigan, graduated at Community and has supported herself by working at variety of places such as; Michigan Theater, The Comedy Club, Zingerman’s and even had her own cleaning business for several years.  Claudia’s passion in life is traveling and exploring new culture’s, taking photographs of all the places and people around her, art, playing sports, hanging around with friends & family, eating good food and just having fun!

In fact, earlier this year Claudia got back to the States from her trip to Germany.  She just decided her next adventure would be to go to beautiful Vail, Colorado, where she could meet friendly new people and hopefully a better paying job with a new start in life.  After being there for about a month things already started to look up.  She already had a job, and more opportunities were growing.  She was just about to move into a bigger place and had just decided to join a soccer team so she could meet new people & get in shape.  Claudia tried the team out and played in a game for fun.  By the 2nd half she was going for the ball and all of a sudden she landed wrong on her legs tearing her ACL, the anterior cruciate ligament which helps holds the knee together.  

Claudia knew right away her knee was injured.  Knowing that she didn't have health insurance her adventure in Colorado ended sooner than hoped and planned.  Claudia went right home to her parents in AZ to move forward with getting treatment, so the work began.  Just to get an appointment took days, applying for insurance coverage only to be denied coverage.  She researched to find a cheaper way to pay for an MRI so she could find out what is needed to fix her knee.  She has already paid hundreds just for doctor visits only to confirm that she will need surgery and physical therapy.  Imagine what it will cost for treatment without insurance.  

Claudia hasn't been able to work a regular job being immobile because of her knee injured.  Even if the government does move forward with the ObamaCare Claudia still needs to be able to afford the insurance and also the cost for recovery.  Out of pocket the knee surgery and recovery costs a lot.  Help us fundraise to get her knee surgery and recover.  We hope to raise $20,000.  This could happen to any of us.  Make a difference today by helping raise money to help Claudia out during this hard time.  Please make a difference and help this effort to get Claudia back on her feet by contributing what you can; it will be greatly appreciated!
