Please Help: Barbara Bowman's Medical Fund

Organized by: Cotey Bowman

THE STORY:

Hello, my name is Cotey and this fundraiser is for my grandmother Barbara. My grandfather and grandmother raised me since my earliest memories and later went on to adopt me. As of a month ago we lost Jim Bowman, her husband and my grandfather. Not only was this a shock to our lives but grandma(Barbara) has also been quite ill since January and is suffering from three fractures in her back, a fractured sacrum, colitis, anemia and now the prescribed medicine for her colitis has caused cirrhosis (LIVER FAILURE). We are at a loss and now she has been deemed terminally ill as of today and told she can no longer stay at the hospital where she has been off and on since January. I am making this funding site and asking for help out of desperation because Medicare does not cover Long term care and she doesn't qualify for insurance to provide for long term care in a nursing home as she lives out the rest of her time here on Hospice. This means that out of pocket we will owe $4,500 a month for her living and Hospice care as she is bedridden and can no longer do anything for herself. We do not possess the funds to cover this by a long shot and will be in an attempt to sell assets in order to help, but how long that will take no one knows. My mother stopped working in order to take care of grandma full time and I am currently a student planning a wedding and barely getting by. If you can or feel a desire to help in any way please do. I cannot begin to explain how much it means to our family during this time where we have lost one key figure, are now losing another, and alone cannot overcome this unforeseen debt which lies ahead. Thank you again for your time and countless prayers it means more than you'll ever know, God bless! (13,500 is for covering 3 months)
