In 2012 she had her C5/C6/C7 cervical discs removed and a spinal fusion.
In 2014 she had her gallbladder removed.
In 2015 she had an oophorectomy, where they removed her only remaining ovary (left one was taken back in 2001)
In 2016/2017 she had extreme diverticulitis, which she is managing with medication.
And now this year, May 2018, she had thyroid cancer (right lobe thyroidectomy). She came out of the surgery and recovery very wobbly, nauseated, and suffered vertigo to the point she walks with a cane. Her neurologist advised it is Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV).
To add insult to injury she started bleeding six weeks ago and her gynocologist has confirmed just three days ago - she has to have a complete hysterectomy.
She has a job and insurance but each year she has a $3500 medical deductible. She's still trying to pay off the one from 2015. She will have to go back on disability which is 60% of her salary, and she is struggling.
She needs help. She would never ask anyone for money and would kill me if she knew I was doing this but I don't know what else to do. She's going around saying she's worth more dead than alive and I can't have that. She just got married in 2015 amd bought her very first house ever. She is only 45 and has a lot more living to do.
Please help me show her that. She has done so much for so many, please do not let her go into that good night quietly.
We live in Ireland and feel extremeley helpless. Thank you for reading.
