After a Complicated Pregnancy, We Need Help Covering Some Past Due Medical Bills Please!
My wife and I are a newly wedded couple, and we welcomed our first son in April this year. He is a very active guy, and we feel so blessed to have received the gift that is parenthood. My wife and I work very hard to provide for our family, and I work full-time as a packaging technician at a small warehouse company in Georgia. Currently, my wife is out of work while recovering from childbirth, but she should be able to return fairly soon.
Due to the complications of my wife's pregnancy, and since our baby was diagnosed with asymmetric intrauterine growth retardation, we were referred to a maternal fetal specialist for a regularly weekly check-up. These check-ups were accompanied by many lab tests, and they continued even after our baby was born to make sure his health was okay. Unfortunately, those lab tests weren't covered by our insurance, so we have to pay for them out of pocket. Considering the amount of expenses we incur on a monthly basis from rent, health and car insurance, and light and phone bills it became almost impossible to take care of these medical expenses, which is why I am seeking assistance with the medical bills that we owe for these lab tests that my wife needed.
I'm afraid that without assistance, these bills will be sent to collections, causing us irreparable damage to our credit and our overall financial situation. However, if we can get assistance with handling these medical bills, then we'll be able to stabilize our financial situation until my wife can return to work. My family would be eternally grateful for this assistance, and I know that we will never forget the support that we receive. I know that a lot of people out there are struggling right now, so with that in mind, we will do our best to pay this hand-up forward to another family in need.
