Ali’s Ehlers-Danlos Surgical Fund

After my Colon Cancer diagnosis in 2011 doctors set out to find a reason behind the early onset cancer. While they were unable to find the cause for the cancer, they found that I had two other rare conditions. One of those conditions is a connective tissue disease called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. Because of this condition I have a rather serious surgery coming up on November 2nd. While my surgeon told me I should have had this procedure done years ago, Medicare does not deem it “medically necessary” and I have to pay for the entire thing out of pocket. I am not currently working and have been told that the recovery period is eight weeks. While I absolutely hate asking for help, I would appreciate anything you might be able to donate to help to ease the financial burden I’ll be facing in order to get well. If you have any questions about the procedure or the disease, I’ll be happy to answer as best I can. Thank you in advance for your kindness.~Allison
