Margot's Big Surgery

Hi everyone! Thank you for taking a look at my fundraiser. I'm currently trying to raise money for a medically necessary procedure that I'm hoping to schedule for early next year--- unfortunately, while it is partially covered by my insurance, I will still need to pay the full amount up front before I am partially reimbursed.

I work full time and have some money in savings for this, but the required amount for the surgery is realistically unattainable for me at any time in the immediate future. So that's where this fundraiser comes in!

For this campaign, I need to raise the initial amount to pay for the procedure and the surrounding expenses up front.  My insurance will cover the hospital stay required by the procedure, but I am required to pay for everything else up front before my surgery date. The money being raised in this fundraiser covers:

- surgery
- travel
- aftercare supplies
- living expenses for whatever time I need to take off of work after my accrued Paid Time Off of work runs out.

I really appreciate any help that you're able to give, both towards the cost and in sharing this fundraiser.
