Help with Medical

I was released from the Army National Guard July 7, 2007. I was injured ,Due to my injuries I was no longer able to stay fit. When i returned home i was 162 pounds. Because of the type of injuries I endured ;I was no longer able to run,do sit ups,push ups, perform any cardio causing me to gain weight. I got up to 337 pounds a gain of 175 pounds, As everyone knows what comes with weight is sickness.

My health problems took a turn for the worse, May 25,2015, when I woke up vomiting blood. After testing I was diagnosed with Nash (Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis) Liver disease, which is an abnormal accumulation of certain fats (triglycerides) inside liver cells. Inflammation of the liver due to fatty liver is called steatohepatitis. This inflammation may develop into scarring (fibrosis). Fibrosis often progresses to cirrhosis (scarring that distorts the structure of the liver and impairs its function).

My grandfather passed away from  liver disease six years ago, The doctors said it was hereditary but the thing is David Clark wasn't my biological grandfather. So the doctors cant tell me what caused this.There is no doubt in my mind my inability to keep my weight under control allowed the problem to progress to advanced stages quite rapidly. I have progressed as indicated by the vomiting up of blood from time to time, fatigue and often abdominal pain. To make matters worse I am allergic to some of the contrasts needed to evaluate my condition, so when I’m being tested I also have to get breathing treatments due to a shellfish allergy so no dye paks for me:(.


I now have medical insurance, under the Affordable Care Act, but being unemployable I can’t afford the high cost-shares. Not only can I not afford the $18,483 in emergency room charges, I’ve accrued, but I also can’t afford to pay the cost-share for the specialist needed to see to treat the actual disease.


Opening this GofundMe was a difficult decision for me and one I didn’t take lightly. So it’s with great humility I ask for your help. These bills have taken over my life and I hope I can get to a place where I can afford to see the specialist I need. Thank you for taking the time to read this. If you can’t afford to donate I completely understand, but ask you forward this link, in hopes it reaches someone who can. I’m truly grateful for your time.


The items listed below are some medical bills and are all separate and individual  bills totaling $18,483. Also as noticed in the following pictures below they are also in collections and yes they ring my phone of the hook wanting their money. Also you notice my goal is $19,000 to cover the percentage that gofundme charges.Note if I am unable to pay these bills off they will sue me,And I will be unable to use any of these doctors again. Thank you for reading this.

New Goal is $9000  the hospital wiped $10k in debt off of my ledger

.


Here is proof that these are medical bills








And to all that help me its gratefully appreciated and thank you. Even though im sick I tend to put others before me even if I need it more.
