I Need Help to Pay for Sleep Apnea Medical Treatment

My Story:

I am a single, full-time worker. I live alone, as my roommate moved out earlier in the year. She was my best friend and confidant, so it has been a huge adjustment for to not have her here anymore. I love board games, thinking of puns, and spending time with my friends. I am an avid crafter, and I love knitting, crocheting, and making old items into new things.

I recently have encountered some major medical issues that included a blood clot that sent me to the ER. I have since been tested for sleep apnea, and have been prescribed a CPAP machine for treatment.

I am asking for Modest Needs' help to pay for my apnea treatment costs. In order for me to continue the treatment, I must pay for the out-of-pocket costs not covered by my insurance. I am worried that I will have the CPAP machine taken back if I cannot pay this bill. This machine enables me to breathe normally during sleep, and without this device, a regular night of sleep could be fatal. I am afraid of being refused treatment over the outstanding balance, and I am simply unable to afford this large out-of-pocket expense on top of all the other bills at this time.

Your assistance would lift a huge weight off of my shoulders and allow me to stay on track with my other bills. Having received a number of medical bills in these last few months, to have the biggest and most important one taken care of would drastically lessen the financial strain. I do my best to support my community however I can, and am genuinely appreciative of any help I may receive. Your help will keep me stable, so that I may pay it forward to help others soon.
