This is the Misty McManus Endometriosis/Adenomyosis Hysterectomy fund. The funds will be used for Misty's medical costs and related expenses

Hello. I am a wife and mom of two children, two dogs, two fish and a rabbit! My whole family depends on me, day in and day out. Unfortunately, I have endured a lot of havoc to my body. Oct of 2009, after countless medical interventions by several specialized doctors, I was dx with Deep Infritrating Endometriosis and Ademyosis. By definition, Endo is a disease process where the inside of the uterus, the endometruim, flows back up inside of the body around the ovaries, bowel, bladder, where it implants and begins to grow. Quite frankly, a lot of this medical stuff can be quite boring and dry and does not convey what it is like for a woman to have this disease and how it truly impacts her life, her family, her career, her sex life, and her ability to live her life in very basic ways. My husband is a self employed General Contractor and I am a pt secretary for an Asphalt paving company. My position is seasonal, which ends in two weeks. My childern and my husband are my life. It has been an emotional, and physical roller coaster for quite some time. My son has recently been dx with ADHD and ODD, so doctors, school meetings, assessments are etched in our every day lives. My #1 priority was to ensure that my children have health insurance, which they do. My husband and I have gone with out. I have been fighting this disease, refusing to let it completely take over my life, but the last few months have been rather difficult. You would most likely pass right by me in public and have no idea of the devastation that I am dealing with. Most of the time I get up, put on a brave face and do my best to live a normal life. I am effectively held prisoner and tortured by my own body in broad daylight with no one to fully understand my situation or who can effectively help me. Untill now!! I have found a Doctor who can remove the Endometriosis as well as remove the uterus (Ademyosis). I am in need a medically necessary surgery in which I can not afford, even with the doctor discount. I am still waiting to hear from a financial counselor at Northside hospital in Atlanta GA. Even with discounts and help, the surgery will be quite pricey. My surgery as of right now is scheduled for March 28, 2012. The money donated will help with surgery costs, travel, and accomadations.
