Cataract Surgery

A Surgeon has confirmed that surgery is ‘medically necessary‘ in order for me to keep my sight.


Cataracts seem almost inevitable with age but as a photographer, graphic designer and Card Reader I still have a lot of images to create and stories to tell. I use my car every day as a driver for a food delivery app and visiting my family and friends across North America. During the recovery period I will be unable to use my computer, camera, or car.


Being a freelance Creative, I do not have a corporation offering me vacation time, sick leave or medical insurance. In order to cover my surgery, and literally keep a roof over my head, I ask you to consider donating to my Surgery Fund. Donations may be made via my GoFundMe campaign or through PayPal.
