SEPT 1, I was diagnosed, hospitalized, and treated for a Viral Eye Infection...
I am already blind in my left eye, with Narrow-Angle Glaucoma, so it is crucial that I adhere to treatment. The Virus is a particularly aggressive , typically causing retinal detachment, anc/or will ultimately lead to permanent blindness.
There is NO cure for it.
Treatment can only prevent further damage and stop progression, and usually last a
lifetime. In just as little a 2-6 Months without the medication blindness can occur.. The Virus, while localized in my right eye, can also quickly disseminate, and spread throughout my body.
The medication is VERY VERY Expensive. 4 Tabs- $398, roughly $4k/month..
(Thats with a discount)
Unfortunately, after being hospitalized in April, I was unable to keep my insurance, and
have been without it since.
I don't like asking for help, and pride will kill you. But I am in a time of need and can really use all the help I can get. lIts hard for me to swallow and ask for help, as I'm sure many of you are. I wouldn't be asking if it wasn't serious.
The Optimistic goal of 10k will be used for Living Expenses, Medical Bills and Prescriptions, Visionary Aides, Food and Insurance.
I'm not sure when/if I will be able to return to work. I'm not sure if it will even be the same career path that was I was already on . So many questions left unanswered, leaving me anxious about my treatment,
Everyone on Facebook has been overwhelming with support and encouragement. I can't
thank you enough.
God Bless all of you, even if you can't make a donation.
Please help me save my eyesight!
