Me & my wife wants to thanks all the generous donors for helping us with this unexpected medical bill. Please accept our sincere thanks for this generous donation. Your generosity will be very helpful. Last Tuesday I had a full knee replacement surgery. Once again we like to thank all the respectable donors & all the staff at modest needs for helping us out. Thank you & God bless.

I Need Help Affording an Unexpected Medical Bill Please!

My Story:

My wife and I are both retired, and we're doing our best to enjoy our retirement. That's been more difficult for us than we had anticipated though because the rising cost of living and inflation have forced us to stretch our fixed income very thin. We live entirely on our retirement benefits, and anything unexpected is really hard for us to deal with, especially right now.

I've been having problems with both of my knees, and I had to go get injections done to reduce the swelling in my knees. I was originally under the impression that this would be covered by Medicare, but my doctors were wrong about that, and now my wife and I have to cover the cost of my knee injections on my own. On top of that, I'm also looking at having to get a total knee replacement, and if we're going to afford that and my injections, then we need help.

My wife and I are very humbly seeking assistance with the medical bill that we unexpectedly incurred from the knee injections I had to get. This assistance would keep us from having to sacrifice our other bills to cover the cost of this medical bill, but it would also keep our balance current as I look towards getting the knee replacement surgery I need. We would be very grateful for this assistance and would like to thank everyone who helps us in advance.
