Funds for medical procedure

I am so grateful for the love that has been shown to me so far. As you may or may not know, I suffer a great deal from gerd (gastroesophageal reflux disease). This disease has affected my life in a profound way. As a result of gerd I have had 1 major surgery that was not successful. As a direct result of this I was sent to Uva hospital. The Dr there were at a loss of how to help me, He said he never had a patient that had my surgery ( nissen fundoplication) that failed. I was then sent to Duke medical and a specialist at John Hopkins for a second and third opinion. Because of the gerd the Drs recommended a procedure that is considered experimental and the insurance company is denying it. I currently take 19 pills a day for my condition and other issues bought on such as, depression, anxiety, as well as asthma. I use 3 inhalers a day. Currently I am out of work with out pay. I live and also take care of a sick mother. With all this going on with my health and mom, life has become difficult at times. Please help me live to my full potential with a good quality of life. I want to know that this can be controlled and I can live without the fear of Barrett's esophagus and esophageal cancer. If you are able to help financially it's really appreciated, If you unfortunately can't at this time, I would just ask that you can please share this on your page, maybe somebody else who can hear my story may be able to help me. Thank you for everything everybody has done . Yours truly, Brian d fischl
