Bill Word's Surgery/Medical Costs

$12,413 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 265 people in 36 months
As many of you know, I had five stents added to my aorta on January 26, 2016 at UCI Medical Center in Orange, Calfornia.  The surgery has saved my life.  I feel blessed that I have received a second chance on life.

My insurance has helped but doesn't recover enough. The bills for my surgery and recovery costs are adding up.  Anything you can give is much appreicated.  Thank you for your help.  God Bless you.

Been a rough couple of weeks. I was Disneyland with my friend Leah. I noticed my left hand was bloated. We went to the Disneyland medical center. My blood pressure was 195/106. An ambulance to took me to a local hospital where I spent the night. I was found to have a blood clot in my jugular vein.

A couple days later my primary care doctor sent me to the ER again. She was concerned that there was blockage or blending from one of my stents in my aorta. Which would have been very serious. Good news - After CT scan, no issues with my stents.

Been off work for two weeks with no income. Please give if you are able.

Thank you and God Bless, Bill Word

Thank you for all your generous donations. I haven't posted an update in awhile. Unfortunately, my back brakes in my car need replacing. Any donations would be much appreciated. Thank you & God Bless, Bill

Got my CT scan results for my annual scan. My aortic stents are "stable." Meaning no other action is needed. I am in good shape. Happy Dance!!!

I made it to another birthday. I feel great. I lost 25 lbs. I am very grateful for all your support and donations. Unfortunately, I have hit with some unforeseen expenses recently. If you are open to donate, think of it as a birthday gift.

Thank you as always and God Bless, Bill
