Help me back to the top

Hi Everyone, It's Israel aka. Iggy here. As everyone reading this knows, I have been fighting liver disease for the past 3 years. I have finally been added on the list with full coverage so at any moment I can get my second shot at life. I went above and beyond to get this far. There are two sides to every story though, and this one has had plenty of rocks in the road. One of which happened recently, as I went back to the hospital due to discomfort, swelling and other symptoms I need not mention. It turns out my markers for a heart attack elevated. This journey has plagued me into a financial crisis, and the added stress from it may have influenced these recent events. My copays, over-the-counter meds (OTSs), diet, and appointments leading to my surgeries have tripled. I have depleted all my received funds. I still need to maintain fuel for my vehicle, phone, bills and any dietary/out of pocket medical expenses. My recovery area also needs to be sanitized daily due to my increased vulnerability to infection. (Add the bedridden fact right here) So, I am reaching out for help. Anything helps. I am almost done climbing this mountain and that final push is all I need. I truly appreciate you taking the time to read this. As I always say. "I love you all. Always have, Always will." ~ Elvis Presley    My sister writes, “He's an example of coming up against the odds. Support can only go so far - determination is essential to beating liver disease. Liver disease came, but he took the bull by the horns.” ~ Dr. Kristen Carrillo-Kappus Show quoted text                                             ,Israel Carrillo
