I have medical symptoms that have been ongoing for almost two years and my family GP and a gastroenterologist here in British Columbia seem to be unable to diagnose. Apparently it is beyond the scope of their expertise and they have exhausted all diagnostic procedures. Consequently, it has been recommended that I should be seen at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona for further investigation.

They have agreed to look at my case. Unfortunately, I had to cancel the appointment because I cannot afford the travel and medical expenses as I have been off work due to my medical condition.

I am appealing to anyone who is willing to help me raise enough money to go to the Mayo Clinic. To have this medical situation resolved will greatly impact my life and allow me to return to work in the health care field. I will be able to do the simple things that one often takes for granted, such as going for walks, exercise again (which was a big part of my life) go to the mall and walk for long periods of time, do my own grocery shopping, go out to lunch and dinner with my family and friends, and just to again have a social life.

The quality of my life has deteriorated over the last year and a half. I am feeling unwell most of the time and suffer from fatigue, nausea and experience discomfort and pain in my abdomen (where something unknown is there and appears to be growing larger).  I also have ongoing pain, pressure and discomfort in my upper back, chest, and organs areas.  

I simply want my independence back so I can do the normal activities of daily living that I once enjoyed.

Thank you so much for reading this and for your help.

Dale
