Alright.. I hate having to do this again, but here goes.. Today
is #GivingTuesday. YouCaring, where my fundraiser is hosted, is giving away a $10,000 award to one of their fundraisers. So today, every donation I receive, even a mighty dollar, with “#YouCaringGives2017” in the message box, will give me an entry towards the YouCaring award.
I certainly don't expect mass donations,, but maybe you could share this post? Your help/post/share could get me the donation that puts me over the edge.. $10,000 is 2 CT scans, and would be a dent in the current $55,000 total that I owe Dukw.. this is all pretty much the very worst nightmare imaginable for a self employed person.. . A rare cancer that now needs 15 years of monitoring for new tumors, a new crones diagnosis that is a lifetime of management.. The first trauma.. being off my feet the entire year.. this next surgery now being 3 times as difficult and dangerous as previously expected.. and off my feet again.. Plus all the insurance fears.. the uncertainty of what is to come.. the surgery being so close to the end of the year, will being there over the new year reset my deductible and will it all be out of pocket again.. The yearly cancer monitoring alone being more than I make in a year.. not adding the new crones medication.. will I need to get a “real job” for health care if obamacare disappears?
This fundraiser has been the one thing that saved me multiple times this past year when I needed to buy groceries, pay the electric bill or make a colonoscopy payment..I can't put into words how much it means to me, everyone's support, shares and kind words of healing. Thank you all from the bottom of my soul.
