Medical Surgery

I was prescribed Accutane, a prescription acne medication, when I was younger and have serious medical complications now. The drug was recalled in 2009 because of evidence of serious health complications due to the use of the drug. I ended up having emergency surgery shortly after taking the medication to have my gallbladder removed. I had never had gastrointestinal complications before taking this drug and now my life is hindered because of serious gastrointestinal complications. I have contacted several lawyers and doctors to try to get help with this issue. I need to have a colonoscopy done to be diagnosed with Crohn's Disease before I can move forward to pursue medical surgery to help with the disease. I have been saving every penny to get medical help but it's just not enough. It's gonna cost me over $5000 to get started with help. I have some saved but it's not enough. I would greatly appreciate any contributions you could give to reach my goal of $2500 to get started with help with my medical condition. There has been several court settlements on the behalf of people just like me that have been intentionally harmed by this horrible medication. Here are some links that provide proof of this drugs horrible side effects that have lead many to have major surgeries and have serious medical complications: http://www.drugwatch.com/accutane/lawsuit.php , http://www.rotlaw.com/accutane-lawsuit/other-side-effects/. I would be eternally grateful for anyone that will contribute, even the smallest amount, to help me seek the medical attention that I desperately need.
With Sincere Gratitude,
James
