Help, I am broken. #GimpinAintEasy

Hello everyone! My name is Alexa Rae. I have an abnormal mass growth in the arch of my foot. I bumped the mass while running in September. I had not gone to the doctor because I did not have insurance.  However, after hurting myself, I had to go the ER. Which lead to an inconclusive ultrasound AND MRI. Early December I was told they are still unsure but I absolutely need to have surgery to remove the mass.

However, through it all, I am blessed! The surgery is scheduled: January 4, 2018. I made sure to take the necessary steps for my health for next year. I WILL have health and dental insurance that begins January 1, 2018. 

I am asking for help. My medical bills out of pocket so far have cost over $1800.  I will be out for six to eight weeks of work while the soft tissue on my foot heals. I will have a weekly doctor visit and I do not drive. The Uber/Lyft costs will be approximately $300 for my recovery doctor appointments alone. That is not including medication, rent, missed wages with my serving jobs as well as missing performer gigs, MJ's food (MY food lol) or any of my bills that I pay already.

It is hard for me to ask for help. I love to be the one doing the helping. It is what gives me the most joy in life. I am so blessed to have an incredible support system of friends, family, and supporters. I know that everyone has their own story and their own struggles. But if you have the resources and would like to help, it would mean so much to MJ and me.
