Medical Bills

Here is my story: in February, a cancerous tumor was discovered in my pancreas. I was told that it had not spread throughout my body yet, but it needed to be removed. We scheduled the surgery and the surgeon ended up taking out my pancreas, spleen, and restructuring my stomach.

Just discovering the tumor was a procedure that costed over $50,000. I was only in the hospital for about 2 1/2 days. For the actual surgery, I've been in the hospital for over two weeks. Can you imagine?

I was under the impression that as long as you have supplemental insurance, it should cover everything that the primary insurance does not. I was wrong.

So right now I am reaching out to those who are willing to spare a few dollars. Any amount donated will be greatly appreciated. Thank you all so much for even taking the time to read my story.
