Layne's PSC fund

Hi, I'm Layne, a thirty-seven year old mother of three. I was diagnosed with primary sclerosing cholangitis, a rare autoimmune disease that destroys the liver by causing the biliary tubes to scar shut, in 1997. In 2011, I lost my job and insurance, which led to insane medical debt because even minor illnesses like colds have a tendency to get out of hand and require hospitalization for me if they aren't treated quickly. My family makes too little to qualify for subsidies under the affordable care act, but we live in a state that rejected the Medicaid expansion, so although I am thrilled and thankful to be able to buy health insurance for the first time in years, I have to pay full price for it, which is a real stretch for a family of five living below the poverty line.
My policy costs $328 per month and has an out of pocket cap of three thousand dollars, so there is at least a limit to what my medical care can cost us in 2014, unlike in the past, and I am hopeful that with appropriate treatment, I may even get well enough to work part time again, but in the meantime, really, anything helps and my family and I could really use and would be so thankful for any help toward my medical expenses. Thank you.
