For the last several years I’ve suffered from chronic pain and disability, and this winter I was diagnosed with what is likely endometriosis — an autoimmune disease with no cure affecting my uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, and even my bladder and bowels. Diagnosis is a very difficult process for this disease, and even still it is considered uncertain until proven by laparoscopy, a minor surgical procedure done under anesthesia. To remove my endometriosis and live a life free of pain, I need to go under the knife as soon as this July/August.
My insurance is limited and will only pay so much of the surgical costs, so I’ve started this fund to cover my co-pays and additional costs as to not burden my family, and I am asking for your help.
long story short, i’m getting surgery for my endometriosis soon and I need as much help as i can get, so anyone cares to donate or reblog, it would be very well appreciated!
UPDATE: I missed my chance to snag a second-hand $70 wheelchair, so now that i’ve considered other options, i’ve decided to go with my second choice for a recovery chair, a blue Drive Medical chair that costs around $130 on Amazon, practically the cheapest on the market for its value considering it’s features (flip-back and removable arms, lockable wheels, swing-away foot rest). It’s lightweight and foldable so I’ll be able to move it around easily through the non-accessible parts of campus or up and down stairs when need be.
Sadly though, it’s $60 more than what I had anticipated spending, and costs nearly all of the money I have saved up, plus I’ll soon have medical bills to pay so that my mother who provides for both my sibling and I doesn’t have to foot the bill, as she’s already is behind on bills of her own and my previous medical bills from before we had insurance. Please, if you have the means, think about donating to my campaign to help with my operation bills. Of course I know that alot of people simply don’t have those kinds of means these days though, so any signal boosting is also appreciated greatly.
I’m a chronically ill, mixed-race (white and native), queer person without a job or source of income who is going to a way-too-expensive college in under a month, and I’m ashamed to admit that I need all the help and support I can get so that I don’t wind up even more in-debt than I need to be. Thank you to everyone who’s helped so far, your kindness is astounding and I don’t have words strong enough to show my gratitude.
