I'm Suffering From a Condition that Could Leave Me Blind & Need Help Treating It Please!

My Story:

I'm raising my 16-year-old son on my own as a single mother. He's my entire world, and when I'm not working, I spend as much time with him as I possibly can. We love to go bike riding and for walks in the local park. I work full-time for an insurance company in order to provide for my son and I.

Recently, I noticed my vision getting worse and worse, and I went to the doctor and discovered I had a condition known as keratoconus. They recommended a cross-linking procedure to correct my vision before it worsens and potentially leaves me blind. Getting this procedure done is extremely important to my health, but I really can't afford it, especially not lately. The recent snowstorms have really made money tight, and also, I'm used to receiving child support from my son's father, but those haven't been coming in lately either. I don't have health insurance through my job, and I can't afford these treatments up front, so I'm asking for help with covering the costs of them.

With this assistance, I'll be able to get my vision corrected and will avoid having my condition progress to a point where it will make me blind. Effectively, your help would keep me from going blind by allowing me to afford these costly procedures. I can't even begin to tell you all how much getting this help would mean to me. I'll be able to continue to live my life without the fear of going blind, and I can continue to watch my son grow up. For that, I want to thank all of you who help me with this procedure in advance for your compassion and kindness.
