My Sister's Keeper- Help 4 Sandra's Healthcare

My Sister's Keeper- Help 4 Sandra's Healthcare

Imagine that you are in good health, have 2 beautiful intelligent children, have a job that you love…life is good. One day you feel severe, persistent pain and it becomes hard to breathe your next breath. You are rushed to the ER. You find out that you have very large blood clots in each of your lungs, so large that cells are dying in your lungs. Usually, you are told, this condition is fatal… and you haven’t even celebrated your 30th birthday. You have no health insurance and make $19 over the limit to allow you to get prescriptions that would save your life. You spend days in the hospital with pain so bad you can’t even sleep all while thinking about others…your children, your family and friends. After you go home you are told that you need to take off from work for six weeks, but how can you when your prescriptions cost more than you make in one month? One prescription that needs to be taken a total of 6 times costs $1,200.00. The costs for the other medications exceed $250 per month; add to that missed work hours for medical appointments and doctor visit costs…all of course while maintaining a household with 2 children. This is the plight of my [blood] sister who in God’s infinite wisdom reunited us after many years. This is my daddy's baby girl and she is a beautiful, forgiving, caring, sweet girl and I am afraid that she will not receive the treatment that she needs due to healthcare bureaucracy. One of my best friends battled breast cancer and the health care system at the same time. I ultimately lost her due to blood clots in her lungs. In fact, I was thinking of creating a fundraiser for my friend’s very costly journey through breast cancer treatments and did not seize the opportunity while she was alive. Today, I am seizing the opportunity to act on behalf of my sister. I will not sit around and watch another person that I love do the deficit dance with the US healthcare system without asking for help from family and friends. Folks, if you know me you know I don’t like to ask folks for much of anything especially money, but this is urgent! My sister must be treated for quite some time, some of the prescriptions she needs yesterday, and I am asking for your support. Your monetary donation will defray the costs of prescriptions, doctor visits, missed work hours and medical bills and will go directly to the costs associated with these things. Please consider donating anything you can. Inbox me if you want to consider another donation option. Love to you all...
