Greetings and salutations!

Now, normally, I am not a person to ask for help like this but I have discovered that money does not grow on trees and I have tried to find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow but unfortunately have had no success.

A couple of months ago I  found out that I  have four ovarian cysts, three on my left side and one on my right side that is close to ten centimeters.  I have been to the ER twice in horrible pain and many, many doctor visits.  The last time I went to the doctor she told me that I would need to have surgery because they are not going away.  I have cried, been angry, been in denial and finally I am able to say, ‘yes, I need surgery.’

Surgery was originally scheduled for June 19th but they moved the appointment to June 3rd, last Tuesday because the pain had gotten worse.  During surgery they discovered that I have Endometriosis stage 4, which was a shock because I have never been in pain other than once a month.  My doctor said she had to remove a piece of me about the size of a grapefruit including my right ovary. 

At the moment, I am resting and recovery will be about a month so I will get time to catch up on my reading, shows and much needed sleep. 

The problem is that I don’t have enough money to cover all the doctor appointments nor do I have enough to cover the ER visits.  In addition I will need to be on a medication for the next year or more that will cost around $300 a month.  In total, at the moment, it equals to about $5000.  It was a shock to learn that I owe that much in such a short amount of time.

So I am asking for your help…whatever you can give would be greatly appreciated, even if it is only $5.00. 

Please pass this message onto your friends and to their friends.  And thank you for taking the time to read this.
