Stage 4 ENDOMETRIOSIS causes severe pain, long bleeding and infertility, loss of employment and high medical bills. Please help!

It is with a heavy heart that I am reaching out to your heart for help

My beautiful daughter, Casey was diagnosed with ENDOMETRIOSIS when she was 15 years old. She is now 27.

ENDOMETRIOSIS is an extremely painful condition where the cells lining the uterus are not shed with monthly periods. Instead they attach themselves to other places as in Casey's situation, they attached to her ureters, bowels, bladder and ovaries causing painful scar tissue.

Casey's Endometriosis has progressed to stage IV which is the worst case scenario. This means she has long, painful bleeding that lasts as long as 6 months at a time! Can you imagine how awful that must be with severe back and abdominal pain to boot? This causes her to become weak with anemia due to loss of blood and feeling depressed because she is unable to enjoy life.

There is no cure for ENDOMETRIOSIS , only temporary releif through surgery, and my beautiful daughter just learned that she will never be able to have children. That news was more painful than the disease to her even though she knew in her heart that she would be barren. My heart cries for Casey!

Casey works a temporay job as a data entry specialist and hopes to be able to stay working as she has lost other jobs, which she enjoyed, due to the pain and having to miss work. Of course, this means there are no insurance benefits with a temporary job.

Several surgeries to try to remove the endometriosis is only temporary as it grows back and the pain is intense. Even a hysterectomy will not make it go away. This has left Casey with medical bills that she cannot pay and the worry of how long before the next surgery which has been every 2 years up to now.

As a mom, I do what I can to help ease her worries and lighten the load of her bills but have run out of resources which is why I am humbled and reach out to you for help. It kills me that I cannot make her pain go away like kissing her boo-boo away when she was a little girl.

Please help Casey ease the pain of these current medical bills before the next batch comes around. I want to see Casey smile again and have some happiness in her life.

Please help in any way you can with prayers and donations. I THANK YOU for Casey <3
