I'm a Teacher Who Is Recovering From Many Hardships & I Need Help with My Medical Bills Please!

My Story:

I'm a single mother, and I raised three children on my own. All of them are grown up now, and they live outside of the house. Two years ago, I tragically and suddenly lost one of them, and it's been difficult for me to recover from their loss. A year before that, I was actually hospitalized after I went into anaphylactic shock due to an unknown sunflower seed allergy I have. It was so bad that I was actually pronounced medically dead and had to be resuscitated at the scene. I spent time in the hospital in a medically-induced coma, and I'm still suffering medical issues from that incident.

It goes without saying, but it's been a difficult past few years for me and my family. My children nearly lost me, and then I lost my child, and my children lost their sibling. I'm a high school science teacher, and I work very hard to provide for myself, but there's only so much I can do when faced with the circumstances I'm currently faced with. I live paycheck to paycheck, and I haven't even received a cost of living raise in many years. As my expenses have increased, my wages have not kept up, and that's not even taking into consideration my medical expenses. I'm normally able to make ends meet month to month, but I recently had to have eye surgery to save my eyesight, and the medical bills are going to go to collections soon if I can't pay them. That's why I'm humbly asking for help with my medical bills from this past surgery.

After all of the hardship I've faced over the past three years, there have been times where I've felt like giving up. The only thing that's kept me going through all of that is hope. I have hope that there is a better future out there for me and that someday soon I'll be able to find it. This assistance with my medical bills would be a huge step towards a better future, and it would allow me to rebuild my credit as I eventually look towards retirement. It will also ensure that I don't fall behind on other bills down the line, or worse, that I don't eventually lose my access to care. I want to thank everyone who takes the time to read my story for your generosity, kindness, and support during my hardship.
