So, as most of you may know, I have been dealing with a lot in 2013/2014. I once worked in oil, a job in which I injured my knee, an injury which I needed to have surgery. After having said surgery, I developed DVT's, 4 total, which broke up in my heart and lungs. I was lucky and survived those events, however I was left with multiple heart conditions. I now suffer from Angina, Hyper-Tension and an Ascending Aortic Aneurysm. the later being the most deadly of the three. I have since been released from my job for very bogus reasons and exhausted all of my savings just trying to stay afloat, while still going to the doctors visits and going through all the tests and taking the medications. I've since had a few close calls which landed me in the hospital getting IV's and emergency blood pressure medications pumped into me adverting a heart attack on one occasion. Currently, I am still unemployed and am going through the steps of filing for Social Security Disability, a process that can take up to a year. My doctors have been wanting to run tests and prescribe better medicines for months now. However, I can not afford them, and my condition is worsening. So, here it is... I have started a fund to help me help me. And after discussing things with some of the long time TEST membership decided to write this post and let you all in on whats going on in my life. I've always been the type to take care of my own problems, however now I am completely unable.
What needs to be done: MRI of Heart (professional fees)
Cat Scan of heart (not sure why both) (again more professional fees)
Blood work +EKG
And a few doctor visits in-between w/medications
This all after speaking to the Hospital will have an up front cost of around $6000.00 if I can pay at the time of service. If I put them on payment plans they'll cost nearly double that. I know that many of you that are in nations outside of the United States have much better systems in place to help those in need. Unfortunately with the incorporation of Hospitals and for profit hospitals / doctors, it is much more difficult for us here in the states. So, it is with a grain of salt and optimistic hope that I call on the charity of TEST Alliance, my EVE home of the last 4 combined years in-game and out. Any amount will help as it all adds up and will be used on procedures and medications and doctors visits. This is just the tip of the iceberg, I have heart surgery in my future. By then I hope to have something in place to not need outside help. But until then I'm attempting to focus on keeping myself healthy and alive.
