Surgery costs and medical expenses

Donation protected
This is absolutely incredible. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
15 more days until surgery

Yes this is the go fund me from the Wall Street Journal.

This is incredible. I am so thankful for everyone of you. my initial concern was paying for the surgery and that has been accomplished. I have been swamped with medical debt since she was hospitalized in 2021. We spent 4 days in the hospital and I still have bills related to that plus all the doctor visits for the multiple times she goes to the doctors each month. They have been sitting on a credit card getting minimum payments made each month and it is a never ending cycle. Please know that any money not used for the surgery will be going towards these bills. This has lifted a huge burden from our lives and I am forever grateful.

I am overwhelmed with gratitude. All the donations that we have received today has had me in tears. I will be able to pay for the surgery and can start paying towards medical debt that I incurred when she was in the hospital for multiple days a few years ago. Thank you!

I am beyond thankful for all the donations that have been coming in. I now have enough to pay the surgery center and some of the physician costs. Just a little more to cover her pre and post op vists, the rest of the surgeon cost, and as mentioned previously I would like to not work the weekend after the surgery so she is not home in pain and alone. I have no benefits for weekend work as it is gig work and if I don't do deliveries I make no money. If there is any excess I will be using that to pay down prior medical visits that are currently on credit cards or still being billed. Thank you again!

Update 2-A journalist called the surgery center and they told her I should only have to pay them about $2,054 (estimate) for the facility. This is great news but I still do not know final costs with surgeon, facility, pathology, anesthesia and pre/post op visits. If the amount of donations happens to be more than the medical bills I would still love to be able to stay with her for the week after surgery and not have to go to work. Thanks again!

Update: I want to thank everyone who has donated and shared thus far. The people who have sent Zelle/paypal. I was able to lower the goal amount as I finally received the facility cost. We are currently looking at 2 office visits at 120 a piece if everything goes well. $947 for the surgeon and the facility estimate of $3,056. Then the pathology and anesthesia being billed, I have no idea what those will be. Thank you so much!

Hi everyone. I really hate doing this as I never like to ask for help but my daughter needs to have surgery so she is able to breathe better and hopefully keep her from being sick constantly. I unfortunately have a high deductible plan and the surgery requires the surgeon and the surgery center to be paid up front before the surgery can be performed. We are currently scheduled for 6/21 and the preoperative appointment is 6/17 at which time I need to pay the surgeon fees. I am told they will then bill me for anesthesia and pathology. I am still currently waiting on the cost of the surgery center but they told me to expect to hit my deductible. I would also like to be able to not work the Saturday and Sunday after the surgery so I won't have to leave her alone, but not working means no money for groceries the next week. I know everyone is struggling at this time but any amount helps or please just share if you can. I truly believe this surgery is going to help her a great deal. Thank you!
