This person has left the following thank you note:
feeling down and out I never thought I would find help constantly getting turned down by state and government agencies left me feeling helpless and hopeless. Thanks to modest needs and to all the caring donors I am able to have the medical test that desperately need. I hope to be able to pay it forward by helping others one day thanks for your love and support Teresa.
Medical Scan Needed For Treatment But No Extra Funds For Healthcare
I am a single female with limited income and not enough insurance to get the medical assistance I need from specialists. I live off of my retirement income and social security. I have reached out to state agency's with no luck and have exhausted what I know of all my efforts to get help.
The health issues I have prevent me from working and unfortunately the type of treatment I need is not covered by my limited insurance. I was always independent and took care of myself my entire life. I now am just barely living check to check. Doctors no longer bill you they expect payment before you are even seen. I am asking for assistance to cover the cost of a medical scan I desperately need.
If I do not get help, I do not know where else to turn as my condition continues to get increasingly worse. It comes down to eating and paying rent or getting medical attention. I have no immediate family and no one else to turn to for help. This assistance will allow me to get back on track with getting healthy and remaining self-sufficient. I want to be able to help others that are suffering too in the future.
