About this fundraiser

I am reaching out with a vulnerable plea for help and support as I navigate the challenging journey of liver disease. The impact of this condition has been devastating, affecting not only my physical health but also my ability to lead a normal life. Your generosity and compassion can make a significant difference in my battle against this illness, offering a glimmer of hope for a brighter future.

For almost a decade, I have grappled with the profound effects of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, a condition that has deeply impacted my life. The daily struggles I face as a result of this illness have been both physically and emotionally overwhelming. The excessive and consistent consumption of OTC medications containing ingredients like calcium carbonate, including sources like Tums, has led to the development of this debilitating condition. The repercussions have been severe, with symptoms like chronic fatigue, nausea, and persistent discomfort plaguing me day in and day out. The excessive fatigue, in particular, has been an ever-present companion, draining me of energy and hindering my ability to engage in even the simplest activities. This overwhelming exhaustion permeates every aspect of my life, making it challenging to perform basic tasks and preventing me from experiencing the joys and opportunities that life has to offer. It is evident that surgical intervention is increasingly necessary to address the underlying causes of this disease and provide me with a chance for recovery. However, the financial strain and the lack of a support structure have prevented me from seeking the essential medical care I urgently require until now. Through this fundraising campaign, I hope to gather the necessary funds to access the crucial surgery and comprehensive treatment that can alleviate the symptoms and reverse the course of this condition. 

Who will benefit? By contributing to this fundraiser, you will directly impact my life and well-being. Your support will enable me to access critical medical treatments, necessary medications, and specialized care that will alleviate the symptoms of liver disease. With your help, I can work towards stabilizing my condition and regaining a sense of normalcy.

What will the funds be used for? The funds raised will primarily be utilized to cover the mounting medical expenses associated with liver disease. These include essential treatments, diagnostic tests, medications, doctor visits, and potential hospitalizations. Additionally, financial support will contribute to transportation costs for medical appointments, as well as enable me to take the time off work that is necessary for treatment and recovery.

How soon do I need the funds? Time is of the essence. The urgency of my situation demands immediate action. Without timely access to proper medical care and treatments, the progression of my liver disease poses a significant threat to my health and overall quality of life. Therefore, your prompt assistance will make a world of difference in my journey towards healing.

What will your support mean to me? Your support will mean the world to me—more than words can express. It will provide a lifeline of hope and relief during this challenging time. Knowing that I have a community rallying behind me, offering their encouragement and financial assistance, will uplift my spirits and give me the strength to persevere. Your generosity will remind me that I am not alone in this fight and that together, we can overcome the obstacles posed by liver disease.

Expressing my gratitude: I want to emphasize my immense gratitude for any contribution you can make towards this fundraiser. Your kindness and belief in my ability to overcome this health challenge will inspire me every step of the way. Each dollar donated, every encouraging message shared, and all the support you provide will be cherished with the deepest gratitude. I will keep you updated on my progress and the positive impact your generosity has on my journey towards recovery.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for considering my cause and for any support you can offer.
