This person has left the following thank you note:
This is my first time trying to get assistance in this manner, so I was not sure what the outcome would be. I am however, glad that I did. Being able to pay off this one bill all at once will extend my ability to keep the total debt manageable. I would like to extend my highest gratitude to every single person that contributed! I am constantly getting stronger on my path to recovery and am currently seeking full time employment opportunities. Once I am financially stable, I will make it a point to become a regular donor to the modest needs website to ensure more people can get assistance as I have! Thank you!
I Had Emergency Heart Surgery After Finding An Aortic Aneurysm. Now I am Drowning in Medical Bills!
I'm a computer support assistant who has a passion for helping people learn about technology. This past February, I had open heart surgery after a diagnostic test found I had a 6.7cm aortic aneurysm and a genetically faulty aortic valve. This came as a huge surprise, as I was completely asymptomatic. The surgery was successful, but unfortunately, I don't have insurance. Between time in the hospital and post recovery, I lost three and a half months of work.
Now that I'm back working, I've been able to make some payments on various bills from my surgery, however, I am running out of money to pay both my monthly and medical bills. I have been trying to find ways to get discounts on my bills or lower the amount, but this kindness would be so appreciated after such a scary situation with my heart.
Thankfully, I have some family that allowed me a place to stay during my physical and financial recovery. Just this small, one-time assistance would go so far for me. It will give me the necessary buffer I need to keep me from defaulting before the end of the year. I can complete my cardiology rehab and get back to full strength.
