Nancy's Medical Fund

$8,550 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 43 people in 32 months
It is with a heavy heart I open this page, but I need help! First diagnosed with edema (water under the skin) in my feet and ankles eventually spread to my lower abdomen. The pressure of the water was so extreme that I developed ulcers in my lower legs that would break open and weep. The painful swelling, itching and stiffness in my legs along with the weight gain make walking difficult. Since edema is a symptom of an underlying problem, tests were done all with negative results. I have recently had unexplained upper body weight loss but the swelling is still in my legs. Unable to diagnose the cause, my doctor has asked me to get a second opinion.
As a hair stylist/make up artist I have learned to work from a stool, but being self-employed I have no sick days or enough insurance to cover medical expenses. Funds raised will be used for balances due on medical tests already done and for the second opinion medical testing and related expenses. My goal is to go to Mayo Clinic and find the reason for this debilitating problem so I can have a knee and hip replacement I so badly need.
Thank you for taking a moment to read this and please do pass it along to your friends and in any social media. I will be forever grateful and appreciate any help given, big or small, and hope I can "pay it forward" one day...thank you again.

I made it thru the New Year, another, "first" without my mom, by sitting in her family room talking to my son on the phone after packing up the last of her things I was taking home. While it has only been two months since her passing and I still have another ten months of "firsts" to go, it's the beginning of a new year and I'll get stronger with each month. One major thing to help this process is to get my health back! Anything my friends can do to help me at this time be it a donation, sharing this campaign or words of encouragement would be greatly appreciated. Past medical bills have been paid but I need to reach my gofundme goal to be able to seek the answers to my medical problems. Thanks again for any help you may able to give!

I've been away from this medical campaign since my mom past away a little over a month ago. As her primary care giver, she was in my life daily. Her not being here has left an empty hole in my life that's been difficult to deal with, but it's time to focus back on taking care of me. Maybe in turn it will help me better deal with her loss. I'm over half way to my campaign goal thanks to the love, support and sharing by so many friends. Thank you all so much, I love you to the moon and back...Nancy
