Medical Bills

While working on my job as a Sales Account Executive I suffered a subarachnoid hemorrhage and right ICA ruptured aneurysm. On December 16, 2013 I was taken by ambulance to RWJ Hospital Hamilton.  Due to the severity of the aneurysm I had to be airlifted to RWJ New Brunswick.  I immediately had to undergo three emergency life threatening surgeries that gave me a 50/50 survival rate.

I spent 21 days in CICU and then I was transferred to a regular room for a one week stay.  By the grace of God I am home now recovering.  Per doctor's orders I am unable to work for six months to a year.  As a result of the aneurysm I have suffered short term memory loss and I am dealing with partial eye sight.  I am unsure if I will require eye surgery at this time.

Unfortunately, I was working without health insurance because I had just started my new job a month prior to this traumatic incident.  I am now faced with large medical bills as well as a mortgage responsibility.  I am asking for donations to help me pay down my medical bills and keep my home.

Thank you in advance for all of your love, care, support, and prayers.  May God bless you.
