In Need Of Medical Funding

Organized by: Rhonda Stevens

I'm not one to ask for charity but at this point I don't know what to do. I have been fighting this battle since the age of 37 and I am now 57. My dear Dr who managed to keep my illness under control left his practice 3 years ago and I am now struggling to get new Dr's to help me. Because they have never encountered my illness they are really not equipped to help me. My medical debt to date is well over $7000.00 and I fear I am loosing the battle. I have been intabated 4 times over the past 20 years. The first time I was sitting at home relaxing when I suddenly experienced severe cramping in my stomach followed by respiratory distress. An hour later I was in ICU on life support fighting for my life. The second attack occurred the day before my sisters wedding, same symptoms same result. The third, I was at work. I left immediately and tried to drive myself to the hospital. If not for the kindness of a complete stranger who saw me on the side of the road and called the emergency squad, I would not have made it. Same symptoms, same result. My husband and 3 children had no idea I was fighting for my life in a hospital ICU. The fourth hit while driving downtown with my daughter, she quickly took me to the nearest hospital. Upon arriving they wouldn't listen to my urgent plea resulting in me collapsing on the floor and defecating on myself. Same symptoms, same results. My former Pulmonary Specialist Dr. Michael Corriveau believes my only hope at this point is to go to a research hospital, my only problem is I need to pay the mounting hospital debt I already have. Although I have been intabated 4 times there have been many times I have been able to fight this deadly illness off by using epinephrine and calling the emergency squad. Over the years the attacks have hit no more than once or twice a year, but for some unknown reason the attacks have now become more frequent, occurring several times a month. Although we have some insurance it's just not enough to cover all of my medical expenses. Won't you please consider donating to my cause? I have complete trust that God will lead me to a cure. Thank you
