THE STORY:

My name is Josh. My fiancee, Rachel, has suffered from extremely horrible cramps, periods, intestinal issues, and migraines for many years now. We believe she has what is called Endometriosis, which is a disorder in which tissue that normally lines the uterus grows outside the uterus. It is extremely painful and debilitating. Most birth control pills give her horrible side effects, and the one she's using now, NorQD, which, in conjuction with hormone shots, had provided some relief over the past year, has stopped working. We have spent more money than I can count on OBGYN visits, frustratingly receiving the same clear ultrasound results and declarations of "I don't know what's wrong", and the only thing that anyone can suggest anymore is a laparoscopy. If the endometriosis is present, it is cheaper and more efficient to do the excision at the same time. Now that we know what we're dealing with, as the disease fits her symptoms to a "T", we're trying to get it done as soon as possible, as the longer it goes untreated, the higher chance it has of affecting her fertility. We would love to have children, and she will be such a wonderful mother. I have a full time job, and she is a part time dog trainer, but it is once again stopping her from being able to work. She wants to start her own business training dogs, and I want nothing more than to see her pain-free and successful, living her dreams. I can't watch her hurt anymore. We're trying to find a specialist to do the surgery, but we are not well-off at all. I'm working and saving as much as I can, but anything at all would help. Even $1 would help a long way. Thank you so much for reading this, and if you'd like more detailed information before giving a donation, my email is japarker000@yahoo.com. Please share this with everyone you can!! God bless :)
