Hello. I'm Matthew Rossi. I recently discovered that I have diabetic retinopathy, and it's damaged my eyes fairly severely. I require aggressive and frankly somewhat horrifying treatments (they put you on your back and inject you in the eyeballs) over the next few months, and most likely even more surgery in the future. I'll also likely have to switch to insulin, and getting on Provincial Health Care and drug insurance (I'm currently not covered) is a must. All of this is expensive and I require assistance. I write for a living, so being able to see is pretty important, and while I wouldn't ask under normal conditions I'm afraid that I'm at a point where I simply have no other recourse. It's either ask for help or potentially go blind. Thank you if you can provide assistance - I and my family appreciate anything you can do.

Hey Matt, sorry to hear about your troubles. I too get eye injections (in my case for macular degeneration) and know how expensive it can be. I've been lucky to come across a foundation called the Chronic Disease Fund which helps with the cost of the medications (they can often provide thousands of dollars to you), and some of the medications, in my case Eyelea, have their own programs which do the same. Please look into them if you haven't already. Best of luck with the treatments!
