My right lung collapsed, and I was hospitalized with a chest tube.
The positive: the hospital in São Paulo has been amazing & the care has exceeded anything I’ve seen in the US.
The negative: my insurance doesn’t pay for anything. Once I recover, I’ll beat myself up for not having travel insurance, but for now, I NEED YOUR HELP! My medical bills are almost $6k, plus of course the cost of staying here longer (pretty much stuck in my hotel room) because I am medically restricted from flying.
It feels audacious to be asking for help from some *exotic* Brazilian vacation, but the truth is the vacation was a gift. Although surely there is never a good time to be attacked, it truly could not have come at a worse time for me financially.
If anyone can help, I would be forever grateful. If you could share my story, you have my thanks again.
