Medical bills are overwhelming

51937370_1603293252201814_r.jpegIn March of this year I was sent home from work with a cough out of concern that my cough could be more than just a cold .  I did not have the Covid 19 virus and my cold dissipated a few days later . The day before I would have been officially ready to return to work , I developed pains that made it impossible for me be comfortable no matter what I tried and I ended up checking into a nearby urgent clinic . They were unable to treat me and I was taken by ambulance to the hospital where I was diagnosed with an inflamed gall bladder. two days later I had surgery and my gall bladder was removed . I returned to work a few weeks later . 

At the time of my hospitalization ,  I had no insurance other than the Peace Health Bridge Program which covers limited care and procedures .  I applied to and was helped to a degree by another assistance program but I still owe close to $10, 000 dollars .  

I have been getting calls from bill collectors and recently a summons to pay one of the bills in 14 days or go to court . The only way out that I can think of is to declare bankruptcy and that is not something I relish but I will if forced to . My other option is seeking help from strangers with this campaign .  I know we are all going through hard times right now because of the virus and unemployment etc . I work part time and I recently got insurance through Obama Care but of course it won't cover costs that occurred before I got it and with the future of Obama Care in doubt ...

I should have been working on this a long time ago I know and I did not try to avoid it hoping it would go away but like a lot of other essential workers , I do not make a ton of money and I cannot afford to pay these bills outright . Loans are out of the question as well since my credit isn't great . I will declare bankruptcy if I have to and can but I would rather avoid that as well as going to court over this 

Thank you for taking the time to read this and I pray that you can help by donating what you can and sharing this with others . I really need your help desperately . 

Bless You
