Emergency Funds -THANK YOU!

Mother of four. Single and self-employed. I need community to come up alongside me to see me through this please. This recent March’s ER visit yielded a ride in the ambulance to Aurora South’s Electro Physiology Cardiac Specialists for my heart’s paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia that required a cardiac ablation, and provoked painful incapacitating occlusive blood clotting throughout my entire left lower leg and into my thigh behind my knee. It’s been a journey since then which has revealed a treacherous culprit provoking chaos in my lungs, heart & throughout my circulatory system. The recommended treatment is an extremely risky attempt by interventional radiologists to retrieve the GuntherTulip IVC-filter that’s migrated & currently perforated through my inferior vena cava with all four of its fishhook-like tines/legs before it punctures my aorta while attempting to safely remove it without tearing my vein causing internal bleeding and hopefully containing the possible fragments before they damage any other organs aside from the major muscle one of the legs is already pierced into my psoas. The surgery should be scheduled this month and every dollar contributed to care for my family is humbly accepted as soon as possible. As a result of my decreased ability to work with disproportionate increase in doctor visits for MRi’s, Catscans, Hemotology labs, nuclear medicine tests, and much more, I’ve incurred increased gas expenses across town to & from medical providers, increased volume of co-pays, and any donation funds will be utilized to provide for my family now through the duration I’m incapacitated for/from surgery. Best case scenario, we won’t be applying donations for funeral expenses. There are other ways you might help which can be viewed on SusanZumwalt’s CaringBridge.org site under “Ways to Help” THANK YOU!!!
