Lisa’s Story

Lisa lives in New Orleans and has worked in the advertising business since 2006. Lisa was working at Radio Disney when she had an accident and required knee surgery. At first glance, it seemed lucky that she only needed surgery on her knee.

However, the knee was not repaired correctly and required an additional surgery by another doctor. This surgery required the breaking of her femur and using bone from her hip to repair the knee. While the surgery was successful, it left her unable to return to work of any kind. In the meantime, the radio station where she was employed closed.

With medical bills and co-pays, even the physical therapy costs became too much for the family.

With the economy and the loss of Lisa’s income, the family was behind on payments and barely affording necessities.

DREAM Fund helped the family evaluate their new normal, covered some critical medical bills and Lisa’s physical therapy. The physical therapy was crucial to Lisa’s recovery and allowed the family time to rebuild their lives.
