10 yrs & counting of Medical Hell!

I am currently writing this from a bed in Boston Children's Hospital and am on some heavy duty pain medications, so please forgive any mistakes!

I have been battling serious medical problems since my bone marrow transplant in 2007, and everytime I start to make gains life throws something else at me.

I am raising money because I need help, a lot of help, and have been needed it for a long time. I am in small amount of debt which is only growing larger as I can NOT WORK at this time. Furthermore, I haven't been able to work for the past couple of years (despite a shot stint as a securtity guard, which I lost due to medical reasons, and can not work anytime in the near forseable future.

I have been denied disability twice now, even with the doctors who examined me for the application told me I should have definitely qualified. I am currently trying for a third time but the outlook is dim. I have sold multiple pairs of shoes that I was saving, my iPad touch, and some of my favorite Oakley Jackets.

I am currently trying to sell my PS3, PS2 and PSP with all the games and controllers included, my favorite Oakley Ski Jacket with black leather gloves, an Oakley Ski Jacket Shell with Oakley beanie hats, and also some of my favorite Nike jackets. On top of this, I am also trying to sell Some of my New England Sports gear, including Patriots and Bruins' gear, which mean a lot to me.

The money raised will help pay for medical expenses, mainly the ones you don't think about. These include money for food and gas heading to and from appointments, copays, and many more out-of-pocket expenses. These costs will only increase as I was kicked off of my parents Insurance (age 26) and am now on a crappy plan under the affordable care act.

Once  I am in a better position all around, including both physical and mental health, and am able to work again without loseing a job to health problems, I will give back!
I will donate to other local people in need, and reach out to the facebook community to see if they know anyone in need. However, unlike the first go fund me, I will not start this until I am in that better place, as I donated roughly $800 to other go fund me's and charaties in our community!
