Help Azmia Survive

Short version: Azmia is a Muslim social worker and freelance writer with bylines in Glamour, Cosmopolitan, Teen Vogue, among others.

She  has different health problems that often lead to long hospital stays. She has currently about $50,000 worth of medical bills outstanding. By supporting Azmia, you're helping her survive -- she needs the treatment for her illnesses. 

Longer version, from Azmia:

I have lupus, mast cell activation syndrome, gastroparesis, hyper eosinophilia and eosinophilic asthma.

I’m on low dose chemo, an immunosuppressant called benlysta, a biologic drug called nucala, immunotherapy, iron infusions, and multiple pills daily.

I struggle with complications like anemia and frequent kidney infections and have been hospitalized once a month or more for the past five months, from three to six days a month, and see doctors sometimes three and four times a week.

I’m currently working full time as a social worker in child welfare and also freelance write when I can to make ends meet. My husband is an immigrant who has been in the US for just over a year and is working as a busser and working to get a GED.

I have health insurance but it’s not covering everything. I’ve applied for patient assistant programs where I can, like for the Nucala and the drug manufacturer pays the copay for the meds for me, but my expenses are still too much. Sometimes I have to travel three hours each way for appointments which obviously costs gas and time off work.
