Mercy Relief Fund

$2,425 of $35,000 goal

Raised by 18 people in 5 months
Created February 26, 2019
Mercy, who is 14 years old,  was treated in UVA emergency room and by the Eye Clinic but, I am told,  the hospital has declined to admit her.  Being an immigrant who is temporarily here without her mother (US Embassy declined the Mother’s VISA request), she does not qualify for financial assistance. Yvonne and I have monthly supported her family since about 2011.  Her father is deceased. 

                I am told the doctors at the Eye Clinic will operate on her right eye to remove the fast growing tumor behind her eye if the hospital gives permission to admit her.  UVA hospital has refused because of payment, which I understand.  I’m trying to raise the funds now, but Mercy’s health concerns me greatly.  She has severe headaches and other symptoms from the tumor.  She needs an operation as soon as possible.  I am told that Mercy’s test results show no cancer but the tumor, if not removed, may cause her to lose that eye and will cause other health problems.  I believe time is of the essence.

                I understand her operation/care may cost up to $250,000.00 (by a UVA Eye Surgeon). I am working on raising that and believe I can over time.  I don’t think Mercy has that time without severe health damage from that tumor.  I have been told that it must be removed asap. In addition to this, an additional $50,000 would be needed after the surgery for follow up appointments and medications.

                And, my heart is really heavy for Mercy right now. 

                If you or anyone you know, have any connections at UVA Hospital please ask them to make contact with UVA and ask UVA to  help Mercy.  Her UVA reference information is in the “Subject” line.      

                If your Church, or any Church you can think of, would take up a one-time love offering that would really help.

(Please reference on the check memo line “Relief Fund”)

Please pray for Mercy.  There is a $10,000.00 matching offer on the table.

Thanks for your consideration.

Upon reviewing Mercy's case once again, UVA has decided to do the required surgery and followup appointments for a reduced price of $35,000 instead of the needed $300,000! This is a HUGE answer to prayer!!!
