Medical Money for Mark Sr.

My name is Mark and I am doing this fundraiser for my dad Mark Quinton Sr. For the last few years he has struggled with Diverticulitis. In June of 2020 an abscess in his abdomen burst, rupturing part of his intestines. He was rushed to the ER and taken into immediate surgery. It almost killed him but thankfully he made it. He has had a colostomy bag ever since. He does not have any health insurance. He has been unable to work since this happened. We have been trying to get help with his bills and apply for medicaid but that isn't going anywhere. The doctor's office that did the surgery said the surgery to put him back together is an optional surgery, meaning they don't have to do it without payment up front. Last week he noticed a knot in his abdomen and went to the doctor and found out it is a hernia. The doctor said he can fix it when he goes in to put everything back together, but he will not do the surgery until he has a colonoscopy. He needs $1500 to get that done. This isn't something that is easy to do. We do not want to ask for help but we have no choice. All he wants is to get put back together so he can get back to his life. As it is right now he can't do anything, no bending over, no lifting, no comfort. He has fallen into a dark place and depression so anything you can do to help is very much appreciated.
