Help Susie See
My name is Jeska Savage and I am asking for everyone to pitch in a bit each so we can help my dear friend Susie (The Viking Goddess of Jones Hall) pay for the surgery she needs to remove her cataracts. Susie has been gallantly struggling along for quite awhile now but the cataracts in both eyes have progressed to the point that she is mostly blind now and things are just getting worse. We have found a Doctor and all we need now is the money. Your donation will go directly to pay for Susie's surgery and any medication costs. This surgery will make sure that Susie will be able to keep working and supporting herself. Susie has no insurance, like so many of us, and she would never ask for herself so I'm asking for her. Please send a bit to help Susie see.
We have met our goal for one eye! Please forgive me for being happy-excited and raising the goal to try to get both of Susie's eyes fixed! She truly deserves to see fully and correctly.
Thank you so much, truly, truly, love and kindness are in our world.
You all get to put that on your life's I did it! board. Susie has had her second surgery and is SEEING out of both eyes for the first time in years! She told me she wakes up every day feeling Blessed and Thankful and that she will always be glad to be surrounded by all the love you share!
Well, there is a few more weeks for all the healing to finish and things to settle out before she can be fitted with new glasses to sharpen things up. We expected that and are looking forward to it. That will put the final done stamp on Project Susie.
Keeping up with the where the money went, here is the second eye totals
Kinda like college, the first class is the most expensive!
Pre op physical 29.00
Surgical suite and lens 1380.00
Anesthesiologist 200.00 (200.00 discount for paying in cash the day before!)
Surgeon's fees (includes three follow up visits) 629.00
Three prescriptions for post surgery were donated! That would have been 325.00
Susie was given Medicare rates by the eye doctor and the surgical center.
So the total for eye 2 is 2238.00
for both it was 4994.00 , we guessed that pretty close! Now, one more doctor visit and new glasses!
