Medical Treatment Fundraiser

I've been battling a diagnosis of a specific type of soft tissue cancer that destroys the blood and lymphatic vessels in the various parts of the body. It has caused severe lymphadema in my legs and torso and made ambulation almost impossible. I was also diagnosis with pulmonary arterial hypertension and a rare disease that affects the lymph nodes throughout the body called castleman's disease. These diagnoses have forced my to end my medical career after 4 years of college, 4 years of medical school and 3 years of an anesthesiology residency. This has left me penny less and unable to pay for mounting medical bills as well as student loan bills and basic living expenses. I have been forced to move back home with my parents after living independently for 24 years. I have no medical insurance and have been using the county resources for doctor appointments, medicines and various treatment modalities. I'm in the process of applying for Medicaid, however, my application has been denied for various unsubsantiated reasons and have been forced to appeal these with the help of legal consult. I was accepted into an clinal trial at the National Institute of Health in Bethesda, Maryland for new treatments targeting my various medical issues. I need a portion of this fund raising money to finance the trip there as well as doctor appointments. This money would greatly help my ability to receive the medical treatment I need to survive and hopefully overcome my various illnesses. I hope to be able to finish my medical training and eventually practice medicine again. Please help me get my life back.
