I Can't Work Until I Get Surgery Done. Please Help Me Afford the Medical Bill!

My Story:

I am married woman and mother of four adult children. I was recently diagnosed with fibroids on my uterus and was informed that it needs to be removed as soon as possible before it continues to grow and cause more medical issues. I work full-time and am the primary income for my household. My husband has been disabled since 1999 from a work injury that resulted in him having a morphine pump implanted in his side. My husband has severe back issues from the injury and is unable to work. Our youngest son lives at home with us, and he has ADHD and Asthma. He is currently looking for a job and is trying to figure out what he wants to do with his life. I want to get back to normal and work without experiencing severe cramps and pains the majority of the month, but I can't afford the surgery that I need.

I love the work that I do, so not being able to assist my patients has been very difficult for me, so I'm very humbly asking for assistance with the medical bill that I need to cover for my surgery. I assist people with disabilities and help them live independently in their homes by providing them with durable medical equipment, hearing aids, and vehicle modifications. I have worked here for 3 years and love helping others.

If I'm able to get the surgery that I need, I'll be able to get back to working and assisting my patients again. This surgery will help reduce the severe cramps and pain that I experience almost daily. I have missed days at work, but I try to work as much as possible so that I can help my patients and feed my family. I would be so grateful for assistance with affording my surgery, and I promise that I will pay it forward as soon as possible. Thank you!
