Many thanks to friends, family and all from the www.dorothyswebsite.org
community who have offered kind comments and prayers. On September 24 I had an emergency triple bypass, something which was a shock to me as I have been an athlete my entire life. However, I hadn't even gone down for surgery when I was visited by a financial representative from the hospital reminding me that I still had an unmet deductible (not to mention all the bills which will be coming in for the operation, hospital stay, doctors visits, medication and recuperation) and asking me if I wanted to set up a payment plan. I know the bills will be rolling in soon.
This was not anything I could have ever imagined or planned for. For those from the www.dorothyswebsite.org
community, for more than a decade you have been able to enjoy the site at no cost to you. Now it is my turn to ask for your assistance. Though I have insurance, there will be many deductible and out-of-pocket costs from the heart surgery that I will need to pay. I have set up this fund with a goal of $5000 to help with those expenses. Any contribution you are able to make would be appreciated and will help me in the healing process and to continue bringing www.dorothyswebsite.org
to you at no cost. Your generosity is appreciated.
