Juan Acosta Surgery Fund!

Hi my name is Juan Acosta and I'm setting a GoFundMe page! Trying to get some help because I was rushed to the emergency room on April 29th of 2016 and once I was there I was diagnosed with a severe case of diverticulitis,on may 6th of 2016 I had my first surgery where I was cut open 21 inches long,4 inches wide and 4.5 inches deep and I was put on a colostomy bag because the doctor cut out a piece of my intestines and I was at the hospital for 2 weeks then I was at home recovering and on July 22nd I had it go back to the hospital again because my wound got infected then I had to stay at home again to recover and on November 16th of 2016 I went to see my doctor and he told me that I was ready to go back to have my final surgery to reverse the procedure on January 9th of 2017 but I was refused due to my insurance denying the procedure. I then applied for new insurance but again was denied because they told me that I didn't make enough money when I wasn't able to work for 9 months so I went to the hospital and talked the financial aid department and they told me that I could make payments but I need to come up with a deposit in order to have my surgery. So I'm here trying to get some help to raise some money so I can pay the hospital expenses now that I know I will be having my surgery on March 7th of 2017. I have amazing friends that have done so much for me and the support that I have received was amazing with all their help.
