At the time of the initial visit Beth had medicaid which covered her costs but when she went to schedule the surgery with the urologist (Kidney doctor) they confirmed the medicaid had lapsed on 11/30. She found this out on 12/27 which was after the Obamacare cut off to sign up for health insurance. Therefore she must get the surgery and cover all of the expenses including the medication out of her pocket. She may also be required to take up to 6 weeks of unpaid time off for recovery.
We have done some research and determined the estimated cost for the surgery. doctors visits and the cost of the medication will be anywhere from $15k-$75k. We are trying to raise $25k to help her with her surgery and her expenses. The sooner we can raise the funds the sooner she can get the surgery and start her path of recovery. This can also her help her pay her bills including rent, groceries and electrice while she is in recovery and out of work.
If she does not get her surgery quickly this can escalate to a stage 2 or 3 which is more likely to spread and become a bigger problem. She has 5 children and her loving husband that need and depend on her. Any donations that can be given would be greatly appreciated.
