Save a business
Organized by: Orienthia Somers
Four months ago I became ill, I didn't appear sickly in appearance but I was unaware of the severity of the situation. I have a condition called PCOS and it is severe. I had a cycle for two months with no break and repetitively went to the hospital because I knew something was wrong. Upon an ultrasound they found a few Cysts; they were said to be benign. The doctors said it would shrink on its own. IT DID NOT! Instead it grew and exploded, causing me to lose an ovary and Fallopian tube on my left side. My Fallopian tube also ruptured. I was also given blood due to them having to drain my abdomen and pelvis because they were filled with internal bleeding. I could have died. I was told my extremely long cycles would stop. THEY DID NOT! I have bled for a month and a half straight since my surgery. Before this I was a salon owner and published author. I have not been able to work in months and have only had energy in spurts. My salon is struggling due to the fact that I have not been able to run it and am struggling with bills because I have been unable to work. My goal is to save my salon. My medical bills are over $70,000 in just a few visits over a few months and I still have yet to find the source of the issue. I am trying diligently to work with the hospital to lower the charges but I have not been successful with it. I have always been a diligent giver, but along with prayer, I also need assistance.
