My name is Emily. I have a toxic mega colon and a damaged rectum. Currently I have a temporary Ileostomy bag. This Friday I am undergoing major surgery. They are removing my entire large intestine, trying to repair my rectum as best they can, reversing my Ileostomy and then connecting my small intestine directly to my rectum.Although we have top level private health insurance we are still going to be out of pocket thousands of dollars. With me not being able to work due to my illness we are struggling badly to find a way to afford the surgery I so badly need.If you are able and willing to help in anyway, I and my husband, would be deeply grateful.Kindest regards and thank you for reading my story.Emily

I'm back home (at my in-laws) from another emergency surgery due to complications from my last surgery. So now we have 4 surgeries all up to pay for, I'm feeling very overwhelmed! Trying not to think about it too much, I need to rest and recover right now. Thank you all again for your support and generosity.

I ended up having 3 surgeries in total. We have received the first 2 anaesthetist bills and the first surgeons bill and already we are well over $8000 out of pocket. We had originally been told to budget for $4000, but due to the complications I had after the first surgery, I had to have a further 2 surgeries. My husband is working overtime to pay for as much of this as we can but it is going to be an extremely long road to pay it all off. I dread to think what the total bills will amount to. Thank you to everyone who has been so kind and generous as to help us out already and to anyone considering helping out now. My recovery has been slow and temiltuous and will be a long road, but at least I am out of hospital now, staying with family in Brisbane until I am well enough to go home. Thank you all so much for your support.
