I am the kind of person who will struggle and fight tooth and nail for months before I ask for help.. but I am learning as a single mother to an almost 9 month old, sometimes you absolutely need help whether you want to admit it or not.
This is me admitting I need it, and asking for help from my friends and family. This last month has been a roller coaster of tests and appointments and biopsies and stress. Now that I have a confirmed diagnosis, and a treatment plan in place and surgery scheduled to remove the cancerous cells - I’ve been informed I have to have just over $600 before the surgery can even be performed, and I’ll be billed for 20% of the cost afterward. I’m scheduled for the 19th of March, but also have rent due tomorrow. I literally just got caught up two weeks ago from being off for maternity leave clear back in June and July. It’s just not possible for me to come up with the full amount I need for the surgery before the 19th, and I can’t push it out any further, I need it done.
So if you have an extra $5 you can spare to help me get this surgery taken care of, it would be insanely appreciated. I don’t even have words for how thankful I am for any help.
I set the goal higher in hopes I’m able to put anything left over toward the bill after the surgery.
