Excision is a FUN word!

Hi EVERYONE!

I'm Lela and I have Stage 4 Endometriosis. 

Endo is a fairly common condition (1 in 10 women have it) but most don't have end up with stage 4 ( charmingly called TERMINAL ENDOMETRIOSIS - tho on it's own it won't kill me) 

I've lived with the life altering period pain, the vomiting, the crying on the bathroom floor... but now things have gotten worse and something has to be done.

My leg has started going numb and the doctor says it is caused by the endometrias growing on or near the nerves. Because of scar tissue and endometrias on them, my kidneys are slowly but surely powering down. 

THere's only 1 REAL treatment for Stage 4 Endometriosis. EXCISION. Cutting out every little bit of the envading tissue. This acts as a cure for 80% of women who do it. 

Problem? It costs a fortune. $30K. And that is if the worst case scenario ( that the endometriosis has actually made it all the way through my bowel wall) doesn't happen. 

So, here I am, asking my friends for help.  If you have any ideas on hustles I can do on the side or any way I can thank you for helping me out, let me know. 

I'll even tell your mom they cancelled Facebook cuz terrorism.
