It's a Catch 22: I can't work until my medical issues are resolved , but I can't pay for healthcare until I have a job.
I had ObamaCare/ACA BCBSGA health insurance in 2016 and it was good enough. Unfortunately, I was not approved for coverage this year (2017), I am no longer elligable because I don't have enough income to qualify. How does that make sense!! Ah,That's a conversation for another day.
In 2016 I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis/Disease; hypothyroidism with nodules, a common illness. Within 6 months I had a team of doctors "my crew" that spanned across 6 specialties.
My Endocrinologist has developed a comprehensive treatment plan that will requires expensive testing (MRI, CTS, Ultrasounds), new medication(s), and necessary biopsies on larger noduals.
Unfortunately I am not responding to any typical treatment/medication for hypothyroidism. My doctor said I am probably "thyroid resistant" whatever that means. Her tone told me that wasn't a good thing. But I can't get more details until my next appointment with her.
I also need a biopsy as soon as possible to rule out CANCER. I have large HYPOECHOIC nodules that cannot be biopsied with a standard fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC). I will need another, more complex procedure.
This fundraiser will help pay for my biopsies, office visits, tests (MRI & CT), and blood work at the end of JULY,all payments are due upfront.
Bottom line, I simply cannot afford these treatments. I have exhausted all my other options to fund my healthcare. I recently had to cut out three needed prescriptions because they are just too expensive monthly.
I ask of you, my friends, supporters and generous strangers, please help me meet my fundraiser goal by July 30th!
As Always, Pay it Forward.
PS - Any supporter of my fundraiser will receive project assistance from me if needed. I am a MS Office guru and I love spreadsheets and data (yes I actually enjoy Excel). My talents also include Web design, WP, coding, SQL & UI/UX.
