Living expenses for Ana Fuentes

$26,420 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 472 people in 3 months
My name is Ana Fuentes, and many of you may have seen my story featured in the Netflix Original documentary The Bleeding Edge.

I was implanted with Essure in 2011 and immediately had severe abdominal pain. I then experienced near-nonstop bleeding for three years and lost hair and teeth. I was in and out of the hospital much of the time. When I was no longer able to sustain a job due to my health, we battled homelessness for six years, and I had no choice but to put my children in church foster families, as you see in the film.

I’m happy to share that I have since found a place to live thanks to a homeless assistance program and have been reunited with my daughters! But I still struggle with my health—I had surgery in March and was just in the hospital last week with a kidney infection. This has made it difficult to maintain a job, so I struggle to make ends meet.

Many people have asked how they can help me meet my living expenses, so I created this page. Please note that this is the only official GoFundMe page for my family. Thank you so much for your help and prayers.

My girls and I are extremely grateful with everyone. I pray our story brings hope to many who are ready to give up..

I wanted to give up when we were all split, but God gave me strength to keep fighting. I never did this documentary to get any financial reward. I just wanted all to see how to little could destroyed us and broke us to pieces.

We are rising from the ground like the skyscraper. Thanks to God for His strength and thanks to you all for the love given.

My health is not the same but I pray one day I will be able to work again....

My welfare was conceled because of the donations but I'm happy because God has not forsaken us.

We still have a home and God surely won't leave us homeless again. I believe the worst is over and each day I will live as if it was my last. I will enjoy life as it comes...

Thank you and God bless you❤

Thank you everyone for the love and support given. I was able to pay lots of bills and got my girls shoes that they've been wanting and all their school supplies and uniforms. I have no words to describe how grateful we are.. May God bless all of you and multiply all in many blessings. Because of all of you, our family has hope for a better present and future..
