About this fundraiser

I have had three endoscopy procedures in 8 weeks due to internal bleeding.  In the first four weeks I had 6 blood transfusions. My  3rd procedure was this past Tuesday June 25th 2024.  I was told by the Gastroenterologist I may be dealing with the rest of my life.  I didn't even get a transfusion after the procedure.  The only thing I can do without experiencing hearing loss, excruciating pain and feeling faint is sitting or lying.  I've been dealing with this since late February.  I have missed work for months.  I'm on the verge of losing my car and my house.  I have exhausted all of my personal funds.  I have had to have someone with me 24/7 in case my hemoglobin gets so low I pass out.  My friend has also helped support me with food and necessities.  She has a life and shouldn't be spending money on me.  

I'm not sure if I can sustain much at this rate. I want to be able to support myself. I pray they find a solution.  This is the most awful thing I've ever had to deal with.  Your body doesn't work the same when you're hemoglobin levels are half as what they normally are.  

I am reaching out for help because I am out of resources.  If you cannot help me monitarly, please don't blood!  We are extremely low in blood donations.  You could save a life, possibly mine!

Thank you to all and may God bless you!
