Hi, my name is Sarah Everly and I am a chronic illness survivor, though some days I don't feel much like a survivor. I have been diagnosed with IC, PCOS, PFD, and fibromyalgia. I am asking for your help because I've lost my insurance. More ...

Hi, my name is Sarah Everly and I currently am suffering with a chronic,  incurable disease called interstitial cystitis.  This disease occured when the protective lining of my bladder was eroded away with no explanation. Researchers are still very unsure about what causes my disease and therefore they cannot find a cure. It took doctors 8 years to diagnose me. Early on abuse by uneducated physicians resulted in another disease called Pelvic Floor Dysfunction. This disease can be managed with medication and physical therapy, but my insurance won't cover my therapy until I've reached a $5,000 individual deductible. Both of these diseases result in an indescribable amount of pain. I am often unable to get out of bed, let alone care for myself. I am unable to work which puts a great strain on my family. I have been married almost two years and my husband and I have never had a chance to be a normal young couple.  We lost our car due to our financial woes and we are often choosing medical expenses over other expenses.  My doctors are out of town and I am often unable to travel to and from in the same day so we often have to pay lodging expenses on top of travel, medication, and copays. I am asking for any donations whether it be ten cents or ten dollars. Anything you can spare will help. I realize that we all have harrowing circumstances and because I understand that I do not expect high dollar donations. Again,  anything will help. I have been in bed for months and if you could help give me this chance to see my doctors when I need to and possibly see the new doctors I need to, you would be giving me the greatest gift I could possibly receive. 

Thank you so much for reading my plea,

Sarah Everly
