Help Save My Friend from Suicide

A close friend of mine has been experiencing serious suicidal thoughts for the past few days. However, her insurance plan does not cover the treatment facility that is the best fit for her circumstances.  She just tried an “in-network” facility, and left feeling more hopeless than she did when she entered. Her family does not have the financial resources to afford the out-of-network facility that can best keep her safe and help her heal.  On her behalf, I am asking for your support in ending her pain without ending her life.

First, please pray that God would show Himself to her in the way that she needs right now.  Second, if you or a loved one has ever suffered from anxiety, depression, or trauma—or worse, if you have ever lost a friend or family member to suicide—please consider donating to this fund to help save this lovely young wife, mother, daughter, and friend from the darkness that threatens to take her away from all who love and need her.

The estimated cost for initial in-patient treatment program is approximately  $5,000.  Out-patient treatment costs are unknown at this time.  The goal is to raise at least $10,000 to be spent strictly on treatment-related expenses.  No donation is too small; in this kind of situation, donating $7.50 is just as helpful as $7,500.  

Please consider sharing this request with others you know via e-mail/Facebook/Twitter, as you never know who might be moved to help.  And of course, if you believe you recognize this person’s identity, I ask that you respect her right to confidentiality.  

Time is of the essence to reassure this wonderful but wounded woman that she can commit to paying for the treatment she needs to recover from what looks to her like an unrecoverable situation if she has to do it alone.

Feel to contact me for a reference to verify the legitimacy of this request and my personal integrity as an administrator of donations.  Thank you in advance for your thoughts, prayers, and support.
