Surgery for Carlos

My husband, Carlos, needs surgery. A couple of weeks ago, what was supposed to be a “simple outpatient procedure” went terribly wrong. Carlos landed in the ER and spent two nights in the hospital. Now, he is facing a complicated, invasive surgery on October 16, and we are at the end of our rope, financially. 

The last  three years have been economically devastating for us, punctuated by my own medical challenges, surgeries and recoveries. 

This surgery could not come at a worst time. Although we have insurance, we need help with the deductible, out- of-pocket costs and living expenses while Carlos is unable to work.  If all goes well, he will likely be out of work for at least 6 weeks following surgery.  

In a perfect world, I would be employed and we would have some savings.  I haven’t worked in more than two years.  Although I’ve applied to more than 200 jobs, during this year alone, I haven't landed anywhere and all of our reserves are gone.    

We appreciate whatever assistance you can give with the cost of the surgery -- or in helping me find employment. 

With gratitude and love,

Sandy
