Keeping Myrna Howe's Eyesight & Mobility

Myrna is an aspiring author who had taught Latin to grade school and high schoolers for over a decade. She has a strong passion for helping those in need, and has a long history of demonstrating this to those in need. Well now is her time of need.


Over the past couple of decades she has been diagnosed with multiple different health issues that have kept her from living her fullest life. Her husband was a software engineer, who made decent money - but passed away in 2018. When he did, her son moved home to help her with their property and taking care of her.

The medical bills are piling up however, and medicare does not cover everything she needs.

Without these bills being paid she will go blind, and be confined to her bed, unable to walk as well.

Her diagnosed medical history is long.

Type 2 Diabetes
Diabetic Macular Edema
Peripheral Neuropathy
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Lichen Planopilaris
Clinical Depression & Anxiety Disorders
Chemical Sensitivities to Formaldehyde

We are asking for $15,000 to cover her medical expenses for 1 year. Hopefully by the end of that time, we'll have figured something else out.


Cost breakdown (roughly) is
$200/mo for Blue Cross
$100/mo for United Healthcare
$145/mo for Part B medicare
$200/mo Medication Copays
$100/mo Specialist Copays
$500/mo Medicare out-of-pocket ($6,000 a year)
