I hope all is well out in the world., I would like to take this time to Thank Everyone who have donated so far, and a Thank You to everyone who has shared this to others or who want to help but are yet unable to afford it.
I am still struggling when it comes to these healthcare costs, It becomes a lot when I only make enough to get by without having to pay off a 100k+ hospital bill.
Any help will still be appreciated, and all monies go to paying HCA/Memorial Hospital.

Scars from Lung Removal
Pre Lung Surgery
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A health scare and a month-long hospital visit have left Marc Bchiri with a number of scars along his right side.
"I thought the anesthesia would be the worst," he said.
While he can laugh about his health issues now, looking at his bill for $301,057, he feels like he just got kicked in the gut. Bchiri's 31-day stint at Memorial Hospital included two broken ribs, a lung collapse and surgery.
"Now I'm afraid that if I would have went down south, my bill would have been half," said Bchiri.
First Coast News Report On My OUTRAGEOUS Medical Bill.
Please Watch the Video.,
This past summer, I suffered through one of the most horrids times of my life.
June 18th, i succumbed to Pneumonia, and Strep in my Lower Right Lung.
I cracked two ribs, coughing so much and collapsed my lung. After making it to the emergency room I was told that I was "Drowning" and that if I didn't get drained and operated on soon, I would not make it.
I spent 35 days in the hospital, and another Two Months on bed rest with Chest Tubes in me. I had to quit my full time job, which had yet to get health insurance, and Basically time has been tough since.
I have never seen this much for a hospital bill, and I'm only 29 years old..
After this report was put out HCA Healthcare decided to be generous and reduce my bill to $118,000.00 WHICH is still out of my range!
I am now working again, but my employer refuses to get us health insurance, I try to buy health insurance but it is ASTRONOMICALLY Impossible for me to afford the premiums.
I usually am not the person to ask of this., But I really need help.
PS. I know I have set a Goal of 100k, but Anything will help to at least make monthly payments, and to help pay for the follow up X Rays, MRI's, and medications.
Breakdown of Pricing
$300 a month for The doctors visit
$500 a month for X-Rays and MRI's
$775 a month for Medications
That is every month for the next 2 years. Along with paying the main bill of $118,000.00
