If this was not enough, in 2016 Michelle was diagnosed with uterine fibroids. These three uterine fibroids are so large that they are causing several issues and excruciating pain. Most of the time her episodes are so bad that she is in bed for weeks trying to recover, only to become bedridden again shortly after recovering. The uterine fibroids have decreased the effectiveness of her Lyme disease treatment because the bacteria associated with Lyme is thriving on the fibroids. Due to the size of the fibroids Michelle will need to undergo a very difficult and complicated surgery. Because of how the Lyme disease has attacked her body, Michelle has been advised to prepare to take off at least three months for recovery and will need consistent care over those three months.
On behalf of Michelle, together with some of her friends, I've created a GoFundMe. We are asking for help to raise money to pay hospital bills, food, utilities, rent for both her apartment and her business space. Michelle is desperately trying to keep her business open so that when she is fully recovered she can return to work and continue to do what she loves.
Michelle has postponed her necessary surgery as she has no family to help her with expenses and care that is required post surgery. Please support Michelle's GoFundMe because it is imperative that she schedule her surgery ASAP. Our goal is to get Michelle the funds she needs to recover properly and hold on to her livelihood, her business. I understand money can be tight, so please know that any amount you can donate would be greatly appreciated. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll be happy to answer them.
