As you may know, E.coli is bacteria that can cause severe food poisoning. With my luck, it grew and developed into a painful infection consisting of 3 different strains of the bacteria before I felt enough pain to seek help.
The doctors removed most of the infection, but not before it had tunneled too deep into my body to completely remove without invasive surgery. They placed a tube inside me to prevent an abscess from forming again and gave me antibiotics to make me healthy enough to receive the surgery I need. Then bad luck struck again.
Before I was able to have the surgery, I lost my health insurance and have no way to afford the surgery out of pocket. I have now been living for about 1 year with the tube causing pain and complications when it was only supposed to be there for 6-8 weeks. This painful limbo has affected every aspect of my life and left me in a deep depression with nowhere else to turn.
I am humbly asking for your support so I can finally have surgery to remove the tube and remaining infection and repair the tissue damage it has caused. Getting this surgery done used to scare me, but now all I want is my life back. Any amount you can donate to help me achieve this would be more appreciated than you could possibly imagine! Thank you <3
