Munchkin's Health Expenses

I am starting this page to help with my daughter's Medical Expenses. Her journey has already been a long one. Unfortunately, to give a little background she grew up watching Mommy be sick (Cancer and MS) but I have been doing much better the last couple years with a small setback of a new Lupus diagnosis. Now my daughter has sadly been dealing with and facing her own health problems that started roughly 2 years ago and have non stop since. In the last year alone she has had 3 Surgeries. She has been diagnosed with C-Diff twice in the last 6 months and Treatment was not helping so she had to endure a Fecal Transplant this past May 2017. She has had to undergo multiple testing since then also as she is still struggling with GI Issues and we have a few more tests scheduled over the next month. She had a Colonoscopy and Upoer Endoscopy which showed she suffers from having a "lazy digestion track" which can cause severe pain and other health issues. General outline right now she has Stage 4 Endometriosis and has already had 2 Surgeries for that. In the last month she has had 2 LARGE Ovarian Cysts that they have recently had to go in and remove. They sadly are discussing a Hysterectomy already. She just this week started Treatment that will send her into Menapause to hopefully help suppress the Endometriosis and Ovarian Cysts. This Treatment will last about 6 months. During a recent CT Scan they found some alarming stuff that pointed to Lymphoma so now she is undergoing Treatment as they wanted to be aggressive while she continues undergoing more tests, biopsies, and surgeries. Even tonight as I start this we are yet again back at the Hospital as she has been unable to keep even water down, severe stomach and back pain, and extremely High Blood Pressure 183/120. She is scheduled for another Surgery September 18th and MANY more tests over the next few months while she continues Treatment. Many of her Medications and Treatments ARE covered by insurance but sadly some of them are not and I am struggling to pay for them as I myself only have SSDI due to my Health Problems. Unfortunately, her Father my ex husband is not in her life, has not made an attempt to see her in 2 years, and has never paid a dime in Child Support. I have been trying to do everything in my power to handle this on my own and not ask for help but am at the point where I need to ask for help. Please, if you are unable to donate we TOTALLY understand but I do ask for continued prayers and positive thoughts.
