Alex needs help with medical bills

Hi, my name is Alex Woodies. I graduated from BSU in 2016 and began working my dream job immediately after. I was teaching music to elementary students and loving life. Many of you probably noticed my weight loss, at first it was great, but eventually it became a symptom of greater health issues I was having. Many tests showed nothing helpful, so I kept going along until things got really awful. I had to quit my job in Nevada and move back to Boise and in with my parents. After a few further tests, they removed my gallbladder. We thought all would be well, but since that surgery things have continued to deteriorate. I am down to 145 pounds(those of you who knew me, I weighed over 300 pounds just a few years ago). I was just recently diagnosed with gastroparesis, which basically means I can’t digest food and may need some other kind of feeding. I don’t want to get too personal, and I have never asked for money in the past, but I am at the point where medical bills have stacked up, and I need to continue to seek out care. I am just hoping to get enough money to help get me strong so I can get back to work as soon as possible. Anything at all would be helpful during this difficult time. Thank you for taking the time to read my story, I appreciate it.
