Help me pay my medical bills

Hi, I'm Dan. I am a husband and a father to two girls, and I need your help. Two years ago I was diagnosed with Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). This is an autoimmune disease where my body destroys my platelets. If my platelet levels get too low, I can bleed internally and it may not be able to be stopped. I have been in the hospital three times and have received medication almost every week to keep my platelet level up. This has caused our medical bills to pile up.

We have started meeting with other doctors and medical practitioners to help find the cause instead of just treating the symptoms. Unfortunately, these doctors are not covered by insurance, and the tests and supplements are expensive.

My family and I feel that it is important to treat the causes of this illness, and believe strongly in the path we are taking. We just need help paying for it.

I am working two jobs, and my wife homeschools our girls. We are trying to stay afloat during this time and it is getting hard. If you feel like helping us out, we would greatly appreciate your generosity.
