THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR GENEROUS CONTRIBUTIONS!
Due to health complications that I have been struggling with for several months now, my right eye has been hemorrhaging blood and developing scar tissue that threatens to swallow up my retina. If I do not get surgery, my right eye will go blind.
The surgery's total cost is $5,000. I have no sustainable health insurance. Initially, we have reached out to family and got a member to fund the total cost. However, due to financial strain and commitments of their own (completely understandable), the last $2,000 could not be attained.
I now only have TWO DAYS to raise $2,000 (my surgery has been scheduled for the 19th, this Friday) and was notified of this news after I received a direct injection to an eye that is only administered if surgery is imminent. This injection promotes further scar-tissue growth and if not attended immediately by the intent of surgery, my retina will be consumed in the scar tissue and vision will be completely lost. I'm already experiencing that now.
It is only through desperation and dire circumstances that makes me resort to the plea of donation.
ANY amount of monetary contribution is appreciated. If you are unable to donate, which I completely understand, please share this page to your friends and family.
To all of those who read, contribute, and/or share this fundraiser page, my eternal gratitude and humility belongs to you.
