I am 47 yrs. old and have many different diagnosis. I am currently home bound and on Home health. I had total rotator cuff repair on my right shoulder on Sept. 23rd and have just now started therapy on it. I was able to have the surgery through fundraisers friends and family put together for me. I will be needing the same surgery on the right shoulder when the left one heals. I live off of a disability Check and that is it. I do not qualify for medicaid because I make over $700 a month and I am over 40 yrs. old. I live off of $1041 a month. that is to cover EVERYTHING, I was getting $83 in food stamps per month. I am not sure if I will requalify after this month, due to my boyfriend moving in to help take care of me. I do have Medicare A, B and part D and get the extra help which pays my  Medicare B premium and lowers my cost of medicines. but, I am on 14 different prescriptions a day. some of them I take (2) twice a day some I take (2) 3 times a day. I have degenerative bone disease that had stopped in 1999 when I had a spinal fusion at levels L4/5 L5/S1. now it is active again and is all the way up to my neck. They are wanting to do facet injections to see if they can stop the degeneration and help with the pain. The injections are $190 ea. That is after Medicare pays their 80%. and I need 6 injections (3 on ea. side) of 6 disc. so a total of 18 injections. $3,420. (my part)I have several other health issues, including epilepsy, I have had a total of 5 TIA's (mini strokes), Osteoarthritis, Fibromyalgia. I need to raise the money to have these injections and this shoulder surgery. This is my Christmas wish for this year. I know there are good people out there that help people like me that struggle and fall between the gap of qualifying for the assistance they need to get medical help! God bless each of you that could donate to help me out!
