I don’t normally ask for help, but I am today. I am in a bind. I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, stage 3A. I was officially told this last Wednesday, January 2nd, 2019. A cat scan found it in December 2018. Yes, it’s imperative that I receive treatment as soon as possible and the oncologist is working on a treatment plan.
I slipped outside on some ice and had wrist surgery November 21st, 2018. My wrist surgeon took me out of work until further notice and keeps evaluating it every two weeks.
I have gone through what little savings I had and have almost used up any credit limits I have. My credit rating is too low to get any new lines of credit unfortunately. I was not covered for medical insurance when I fell. I was self-pay until recently. On January 1st, 2019 I have healthcare insurance I pay a premium on and hope I can get them the required financial information by March to continue receiving coverage. They want proof of my anticipated annual income for the year 2019. How do I prove what my fate could be? Not sure, but will try to figure something out.
I had so many medical appointments, radiology appointments, physical therapy appointments, and pharmacy prescriptions, plus gas driving back and forth that I am almost broke, literally. I had to cough up $100 deposits on medical appointments and pay prescriptions in full, besides paying my normal monthly expenses for my mortgage, car, etc.
I am hoping to go back to work within the next month or two hopefully. My wrist, hand and fingers are slowly healing. I am trying so hard to regain normal use of my left hand so I can work. My oncologist wants me to start an aggressive chemotherapy soon. He has me doing all the pre-prep requirements before it begins. I know it will not be easy, but I do want to work even under those circumstances. Praying all goes well.
I am tapped out. Please only donate if you can. I don’t want to put any burdens on any one. I’m just asking, to help me get by for a little while until I can get back on my feet.
Keep me in your prayers, because tbh I’ve never been so fearful in all my life.
Thank you so much! Blessings .. Trish
