Medical Surgery

My name is Karen,
Just like the sun rises and sets; so are our lives  ticking like the clock. The only difference is that we don't know what's coming on the next rise or set.

I have worked full time supporting my household because, my husband worked sporadically due to lack of jobs .
In  July,2013, my husband (Scott) and I were so excited ,that he finally got a full time job . The job paid well  and  all our financial problems would be  over.  4 days into the job, he died from  a heart attack , out of town where he had gone for work.  We had life insurance from the New job which didn't apply because he worked less than a month.  I got lots of help from friends and family. Thanks to the friends and family, I  caught up from funeral expenses, house  bills  car fixing and even started paying on my university financial Aid.

September 7,2014, I injured my left hip and  needing emergency surgery October,22 . I have other medical bills from the emergency room  $932, tests  and lab work approx $380 which I could make arrangements to pay but I mostly need  $4,000 funding for surgery so that I can be well to go back to work. My short term disability insurance was denied and I they sent me paper work to appeal ; which I did and I have not heard from them yet. So I can't make repayment arragements due to not  having sufficient income.

I am appealing to family and friends to please help me get back on my feet. Thank you for listening and thank you for the donations.


Sincerely,
Karen
