As you may have heard, I have been suffering from a freakishly strong strain of strep in my throat for over three months. Yep, that’s three months of my throat hurting, pain whenever I swallow, losing my voice almost daily, and pain when I talk or sing for more than 10 minutes. After a trip to urgent care, then the primary doctor, and then the specialist – and five rounds of steroids/antibiotics during the process – they have determined surgery (removal of my tonsils) is my final option for relief. My surgery is scheduled for October 9, 2013.
While I am incredibly lucky to finally have a job that offers insurance, I unfortunately have over $2500 in bills for the co-pays, deductible, and prescriptions. Also unfortunately, paying my own way through grad school, living on my own, and working for nonprofits means I have also been pretty much breaking even each month since moving to Austin. So these bills are putting me into a debt that I don’t see a way out of due to my profession and income. I spend my days – am spending my life – raising money for very worthy charities. Now I’m hoping you will help my personal cause by making a donation towards my medical bills as I try to make ends meet and be healthy.
Thank you for any support you are able to provide. Hugs & Kisses to all of you!!
