Colleen's Medical Fund
In 2014 I was in a hospital recovering from a pulmonary embolism. The consequence was not from a bad life style but medications and Chemo gone wrong. I had to face the hurdle of huge medical bills. $15 hundred dollars a week on medications this luckily dropped down but its a hard thing to do. Many treatments or tests are not covered by medicare so the expensese keep going up, the cost of rent and food, while money goes down. Its all be hard but has made me a better person, I at least hope I am a better person.
I have been struggling to make ends meet, to raise my kids pay the bills and stay alive. The cost of medication never lets up. I am still often in and out of hospital because of the brain tumour or the other associated problems with my health. I have tried to work, but can't as I get bad headaches and sometimes cannot see properly.
In 2016 Another tumour was found in my jaw. At the time it was a wait and see scenario. Well now the wait is over. I need surgery on my jaw to remove the tumour before it gets too big. Apart from this I have been prescribed a different medication for my brain tumour, but it costs over $300, I don't know how long I will have to take this medication, infact I don't know how long I will be alive. I am considered terminal. But I want to stay alive to watch my kids grow and to have some grand children.
So plan B is being formulated. Lets hope that it works
