Arielle's Surgery Recovery Fund

I've been waiting a long time to say, "Ooch my cooch!".

The time has come.

In 2014 I started preparations for this life changing surgery. I was not able to get things done in a timely matter due to interference from bad actors in my life.

Thankfully I'm in a safer healthier place and I've been able to restart this process and everything is scheduled for this year!

The procedure itself is covered, but there's still quite a lot of funds needed for food, supplies, bills, and transportation during my lengthy 3 month at-home recovery.

My procedure's recovery includes 90 straight days of multiple baths, washes, and bags and bags of biomedical waste. This increases the cost of water usage and garbage pickup for 3 months. These 90 days of recovery require about 3 routines 3 times a day each with their own supply. As well I'm having a trusted and available loved one staying to keep an eye on me and help me with stairs, helping make sure I'm fed and ensuring I'm healthy. They are leaving their dayjob to support me and I sadly can't compensate for the loss of income for the time they are here.

I'm looking for your help in covering these costs. I appreciate every view, every share, and every donation. Thank you so much.
