Help Joy pay for $8000.00 copays

I was born with a degenerative eye disease that ultimately causes blindness. I have been fighting the painful scarring cornea erosions since I was a small child. There is no cure, only temporary patches with cornea transplants, since the disease is programmed to take over the new cornea. In addition to the disease, I have had had several accidents, one with a power washer and one with a chemical burn. Currently, I am fighting to save my eye. My sight is gone in my right eye. If the eye can be saved and it heals from my current corneal ulcer and infection, I pray to have a transplant in the next few months.  The process for healing is slow and expensive.  
The gofundme was a last resort when I lost my job while seeking medical care. I have to see a cornea specialist every other day and my  eye drops are a special compound made at UAB. In one week, my out-of-pocket expenses have been over $600.00; the three compounded drops have to be inserted every hour and will have to be refilled.
I appreciate your prayers and your contributions.
Someone recently said, "If I had to put up a gofundme, I would kill myself."
That's sad and selfish, God has called me to live and I have been blessed by strangers with generous hearts.
One lady wrote to say that God had called her to help me, and that it blesses her. What a blessing!

I'm blown away by the kindness and generosity of you all. I pray that God blesses each of you with more than you can imagine.

Please take the time to share this post, so those who love to help others may be aware of my needs. 

Thank you in advance.

Joy Willow
