On Monday, March 3rd
I took a terrible fall slipping on ice. By Wednesday morning I was
unable to move and ended up calling 911. Was taken to the emergency
room via ambulance where a cat scan was taken. Was told that I
seriously herniated 2 discs in my lumbar area.
I am being seen by a neurosurgeon and
am in need of an mri. I do not have health insurance and Obamacare is
not helping me at the moment since it hasn't become implemented in my
state yet. When I called about the mri I was told that I would need
to bring in at least 2000 dollars in order to be seen. I am spending
a large amount of money on pain medications, muscle relaxers and
steroids and try as I might, cannot come up with 2000 for the test.
The hospital, ambulance company and
even the neurosurgeon were willing to bill me and accept payments.
The radiologist is not willing to do this, although I have explained
the situation to them.
I am currently on bedrest and am using
a walker. Until this happened, I was a very healthy, active and
production member of society. I have worked most of my life.
My neurosurgeon needs the mri in order
to ascertain how much damage was done and can make a decision about
my treatment, surgery or otherwise.
I am living in limbo right now, in
serious pain, incapacitated and really want to move forward with my
treatment and my life. I have looked into other ways to get this test
done, without any success.
Any help, small or large will help me
move forward. Something I really have a strong desire to do. I am not
the disabled/bedridden type of person.
This is an opportunity for someone to
make a real difference in the life of an individual. It pains me and
embarrasses me to ask for help as I am a firm believer in
I do have all documentation to support
my current condition and the prescription for this test. I thank you
from the bottom of my heart for any type of help you are willing to
If paying each and everyone of you back
is not possible, I will definitely pay it forward in anyway that I
If you are unable to help, I completely understand. But please share my story and link to my gofundme.com page. The url is http://www.gofundme.com/7e15j0
Thank you and God Bless,
