On December 6th Sunday afternoon, I had the unfortunate accident that resulted in a severe injury. I was out riding with my friends on our electric skateboards when I came upon a corner where I fell off the pavement and slammed into the ground. I was groggy when my friend found me laying on the ground but the result of this accident was a dislocated and fractured wrist. My friend took me to the Emergency room where they popped my wrist back in, but then I learned that I needed urgent surgery. Unfortunately due to the horrible coverage my company insurance has, it did not make sense to buy this insurance just to pay to have nothing covered.
For the record I do accept 100% of the responsibility for the accident and choice not to accept the insurance. Both of these are unfortunate costly mistakes which I am now paying for because in order to have the surgery I need, I must put down $7,500 upfront. They hospital will not do my surgery until I can come up with that payment.
I've resorted to selling my personal belongings to help raise the funds. I also applied to over 10 different medical loans, which all have denied me. I felt like I expended every option. I've been doing all this with severe pain radiating from my wrist. Never did I feel that my wellbeing would be at the mercy of finding funds for surgery. I've over come many challenges in my life however during the time of covid and raising my son as a single father, this is a challenge that I can not do on my own. Which is why I am swallowing my pride and reaching out to you for help. I understand 2020 has been hard in everyone and I am asking you to help me in one of three ways please.
1. Donating any amount you can for me.
2. Sharing my gofundme.
3. Sharing any financial advice I can use.
If you can do one of those for me, I would be ever so grateful! Much Love!
