In Need of Medical Assistance.

$10,062 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 100 people in 15 months
This fundraiser started out as just something I needed to cover rent because I was short a few days from returning to work from short term disability. This was from a time when I thought I could still work full time with diagnoses of advanced congestive heart failure and end stage renal disease. How so very wrong I turned out to be. I've had to go on social security disability. That doesn't make ends meet at all. A part time 16 hour a week job has helped, but those hours cannot always be counted on. Especially now that my heart transplant process is ramping up considerably. Stress tests, heart caths, and many doctor appointments are ahead of me. This is going to impact me medically and financially, especially post transplant (if I am blessed enough to make it to that point). Expenses will pile up very quickly once I am recovering for almost 5 months and cannot work at all. This fund is pivoting towards setting up a long term savings account that will hopefully provide a cushion and allow me the peace of mind to heal without the stress of not knowing where the money will possibly come from. If you can donate, please, any amount will help. If you can't please share this. We need this to go viral! Any one of us is only one disaster, medical or natural, away from total ruin. If you ask if there is anything you can do for me, this is what I need most. I know the amount seems high, but this isn't just for my near future, it's also for my life after. When the Medicare and disability ends and the costs of my 12 anti-rejection meds are on me as well as having to get back into the workforce.

Last week was a tough one. I underwent so many medical tests my head is still spinning. I lowered my monetary goal drastically as you can see. I honestly don't know what to do anymore. I'm just trying to hold it all together. It's like trying to hold a sandcastle together that's being hit by waves. Seems impossible.

Well, I had 12 hours of testing at the hospital on the 3rd and I'm tired. They did complete heart catherization, CT of head, neck, chest, and pelvis (?), Chest X-ray, ankle brachial index, and ultrasound of abdomen and pelvis. I am tired and not done yet. I still have to see their psychiatrist, see the dentist to rule out infection and to make sure I don't need dental work. That's going to cost $40 bucks.

I am missing days of my part time job regularly now and it's absolutely destroying my ability to pay even my basic bills. I am absolutely desperate for assistance. I cannot get through this stretch without it. My calendar is full of appointments. Please god help me.

I am in my darkest hour of need. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

It has been a tough month both medically and financially. My part time job hours have been cut due to a situation out of my control. Money I counted on to help me pay rent is not there so I ask for your help. I know I continually ask, but I continually need. If even 20 of you donated 10 dollars I would make it. Please, on this day of thanks, help me. Help.

Thanks for everyone helping me. I could not have survived to this point without all of you. It's still a struggle making ends meet, but things are looking up. If anyone would like to provide for my medical expenses, please feel free to. ❤❤
