Help W/ Medical Expenses Traveling
I have a cancer issue that has been treated locally, but now they want me to go to a clinical testing clinic in Florida where I have been seen and
Once I get there, my expenses are covered, but I don't have the funds to make the trip from Michigan to Florida and (hopefully) back. All I need is traveling funds. My car gets roughly 23 mpg and the trip is about 1600 miles long each way. It works out to roughly $400 for fuel round trip. Having been a long time traveler, I know that it is not wise to leave with a margin of a couple of nickels.
I've managed to collect about $110 between GFM and PayPal donations and I am sincerely grateful for the help.
I have no idea of how long I'll be in this unit, but when they are done with the assessment portion of the research... and this is a research clinic that pays all of my treatments and living expenses while I am here... they will have me go to a different part of the clinic and decide what to do for me.
For those that asked me about it, this is not an open enrollment clinic. You can't just walk into it and get treatment. I had to be referred by a doctor in their system back in 2013 and then not only pass their physical requirements, they wanted to be sure that I was committed to follow through with the program.
Once in the program, I had to sign waiver after waiver after waiver that held them harmless and 100% not responsible for any problems that might crop up. If I grew a monkey tail, it was mine to keep. This was not an easy path the first time, and there were many nights when I wished I was dead, but I made it.
I am back to zero funds again. In fact, I had to pawn my best Nikon camera to get here. If you have $5... $10... whatever you can afford, I would appreciate your support. You can donate via GFM or by visiting this link. Both will end up where I can use them.
