As many of you know I've been facing increasingly serious health problems these past few years. These issues began as a young adult resulting in the loss of one of my kidneys.
More recently I've had my gallbladder removed and pancreatitis affecting my liver. I also have mass inflammation in my body causing severe and constant pain, loss of mobility to my shoulders, and allergic reactions to medications used for treatment. My doctors have been unsuccessful in finding a diagnosis and their concern is my other organs, affected by whatever is going on, will become so damaged that they may also fail.
They are sending me to The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, in June for a week of evaluation and testing.
My insurance covers very little (40% of some of the expenses) and on my own I cannot afford the travel and medical costs.
If you're accepted by The Mayo Clinic it means you're very sick which has been a difficult thing for me to accept since I spend a lot of time pretending I'm not.
I have a very hard time asking people for things but it is vital for my life that I go. So if you can donate a bit to help me get there that would be amazing and if you can pray or send happy thoughts or do whatever it is you do I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks for reading and I love you all,
