As many of you know, in the last year Jamie has endured some major health problems that required multiple surgeries, more than a dozen hospital stays, physical therapy, and several ambulance rides. In addition to all this, she just found out she needs another surgery next month. Her condition, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (her surgeon said she had the most severe case he had ever seen) caused a Deep Vein Thrombosis (blood clot) in her right arm, and required three surgeries to remove the clot, her top rib, and two muscle groups from her neck and shoulder. Her surgeries and medications produced several complications including severe anemia and a bleeding ulcer. In addition, Jamie had to undergo intense physical therapy to regain use of her right arm, and make several trips to the hospital for blood infusions.
While her recovery is going well, the financial toll has been extreme. Even though Jamie has insurance, she has already paid thousands of dollars in co-pays, and is sitting on thousands more in unpaid bills. She has gone through all her savings, and simply cannot keep up. The collection agencies call multiple times a day. She could really use some help.
If you are in a position to donate, please do. Any amount helps. The goal is to raise $5,000 to cover her current medical bills and those still coming in the next month. If we all pitch in what we can, we can easily reach this goal, and Jamie can stop stressing about money, to focus on getting better.
