Payment for Patrick's Procedure

First off I initially felt very uncomfortable in doing this. In my Outreach Ministry I have no problem at all posting about the needs of the Homeless and securing assistance for our Neighbors in Need. But when it comes to myself I feel undeserving. A friend at church the other night told me how could I serve others unless I saw to my own needs first? So here is my story. Since 2014 I have been battling a cancer called Squamous Cell Carcinoma in my left ear. In 2015 a doctor cut the cancer out. It grew back. In 2016 the doctor cut it out again. It grew back. In early 2017 the doctor tried a different tactic and used acid. It never healed and in fact the cancer grew back even more aggressively. I was referred to a specialist and I am scheduled for the very expensive Mohs surgery on February 8th. I received my paper work last week and I am expected to have the $1250.00 copay up front before the surgery. I have exhausted all my options to raise this payment but it is just not in my budget. So that same friend suggested a Go Fund Me account. I told her I was not comfortable with this but would pray over this suggestion. God has given me a peace to post this request to my brothers and sisters in Christ. If you can help it would be greatly appreciated. If you are in the same boat as me financially then your prayers are very much coveted. HIS will be done. Thanks and God Bless!!
