My name is Eric Klein. My wife and I are traveling from Florida to Vail so I can have knee surgery with Dr. Steadman at the Steadman Hawkins Clinic. It’s a very unique situation. I am having trouble finding affordable lodging. I need to stay one month and am looking for a furnished studio or one-bedroom for me and my wife while I go through physical therapy. I am on a very limited budget, having had to raise the money through donations and fundraising just to cover medical expenses and travel. We are still raising money and are trying to hit our goal. I am scheduled for pre-op Feb 8. If there is any assistance you can provide for us, please let us know. Please feel free to read about my situation at http://www.help4e.bbnow.org.
