Mingo's Med. Assistance Fundraiser

Ok so I am going to tell you whats going on inside my body.. It all started when I was a baby, being born prematurely I was in need of a blood transfusion, and in that blood there was a virus called Hep C, (no I do not use drugs, especially with needles). I did not find out about it until I was 16 because I attempted to donate blood and to be honest as a teenager I really did not take it seriously. So now we are now in current time, letting the virus brew for 32 years has now affected me in several ways. It started with Psoriasis 2 years ago, I decided to just live with it until it got really bad to the point where I was very uncomfortable with people staring and how my skin looked, that my wife finally convinced me to go to a Dr. After running numerous blood panels it turns out its not Psoriasis its an autoimmune disorder caused by the liver where my platelets and white blood cells are dangerously low (wont stop bleeding). One Dr believes its early stages of Leukemia in which I have to wait until I get rid of the virus in order to pursue that route. Back to the virus, I have had it so long that it damaged my liver making it cirrhotic and so I am in need of a liver transplant as well. With that cat out of the bag it comes down to this fundraiser, out of pocket dues are expensive and it has quickly hurt our finances, luckily I have an understanding wife that it has not caused any problems at home, however I stress greatly that I will not be able to get better because of the lack of funds. In advance I want to thank everyone who has helped me, not only on this, but accepting the fact that I should accept the help from others. Those who know me well I am not a person to ask for anything so its difficult for me to fund-raise for my health.. Writing this is very hard, it might not seem it but its kicking my butt emotionally.

Where will the money be going?? To medications Harvoni being the most expensive $1001 per pill , who knows how many I will need (estimated $31,000), Clobetasol is a steroidal lotion to get the scales under control $60 every two weeks, weekly Liver Fibrosis Panels at $390 its to see how I am reacting to the Harvoni and determines when I stop that treatment.. Those are just for the now, I am going on the liver transplant list and that bill is going to be HUGEEE (POTUS Trump's voice).
