A fund to help cover medical expenses not covered by insurance.

I suppose the best way to start is by introducing myself. I'm Jennie. I'm 29 years old, and I live in South Dakota with my husband. I have a condition that results in painful abscesses forming near or on my tailbone. They're called "pilonidal cysts", and they flare up every few months. I have had antibiotics and minor surgeries to relieve some of the excruciating pain, but they are only small solutions to a very large problem. The only option left to me now is major surgery to remove the offending area. Unfortunately, because of our current financial circumstances, my husband and I cannot afford all of the costs involved in this process, including medication and surgeon's fees. I am coming to you, asking that you help me overcome this painful condition by helping me afford the medical costs involved.
I do not believe in begging, I feel that it lowers both the begger and the person helping. But I am at the end of my rope here, and don't have any other options available. So I am coming to you for help. Any help. Even just a hug.
