Adenomyosis Excision Surgery Fund

Adenomyosis is a painful  disease where endometrial tissue grows into the wall of the uterus. I've spent many years in pain due to adenomyosis (and for most of those years, I couldn't even get a proper diagnosis). I was laughed at, told I was creating pain in my head, and even referred to a sex therapist and pain management specialist. I've bounced around from doctor to doctor who have offered me little hope in relief. I had a laparoscopic myomectomy 2 years ago that failed because the doctor was unable to remove a 9 cm adeonomyoma from my uterus. However, I was finally diagnosed from this procedure.  Since then, I've had to do my own research since adenomyosis and endometriosis are not priorities for most doctors that study gynecology in the United States. Adenomyosis appeared along with two other autoimmune diseases that I've been diagnosed with (Hashimoto's disease and Chronic Urticaria), and recent research shows that there is a correlation between endometriosis/adenomyosis and autoimmune disease in families. I've spent the past few years feeling isolated by my pain, and all I want to do is improve my quality of life. 

Recently, I discovered Dr. Bozdogan who claims he can remove the adenomyoma without removing my uterus. I felt comfortable with him immediately, and he's the first doctor that hasn't made me feel ashamed of my pain.  Unfortunately, it seems that all doctors that specialize in endometriosis are not covered by my insurance, and I'm looking at large fees for the surgery alone. 

I created this GoFundMe because this is my last hope. I hate to ask people for money, but financial help for this surgery does not exist. I know we all have problems in our life, but every cent counts! I plan on paying it forward in the future, and helping you with any cause that is near and dear to you. Please help me get this surgery, so I can improve my life and just be "Daphney" again.

Thank you <3
