Gail's Birthday & Her Medical Bills

Raised by 42 people in 10 months
Hi All!! 
I am here to celebrate my birthday with you! 
You all remember that a year and a half ago, a large brain tumor (an oligodendroglioma) was found in my head.  A big seizure occurred while I was at work, and my boss took me to the ER!  An MRI there showed us that a surgery was needed right away.  I was then lucky to have a great surgery that removed 90% of the tumor.  The tumor remains were then reduced through radiation and chemo treatment last year. You can find more details at my personal site, The Gail Spot.
I am truly thankful to be able to get back to myself, but I am now overwhelmed with the bills I receive.  My great surgeon wants to look at my brain to ensure it is healing properly -- which means MRIs every 3 months.  While I am happy to have health insurance, I still must meet the deductible and out of pocket maximum before they will cover the bills.  I currently have a payment plan to pay off the last two years of bills at $3200.  There will be a new bill coming up in a couple of months when my MRIs start again at another $3000.
The biggest issue for me is the prescription the doctor has me stay on.  It is great to stop any possible seizures.  But it makes me randomly very nappy.  I have not been able to find a job for which I could work around my weird naps.  I have done some .com jobs to help start an income.
For my birthday, February 3rd, please say "Happy Birthday" through any small or medium or large donations you would be willing to give.
I appreciate any support from my friends and family!
