Kelly already has medical expenses adding up for his sickness.The funding will be use to pay for the cost and any related expenses.

My name is Kelly O'Donnell and I am a 54 yr. old man with Chronic Hepatitis C. I have underwent treatment for this Disease about 8 years ago, but I was considered a Non-Responder after 6 months of treatment. Since that Treatment the Doctors have been monitoring my Hepatitis with annual testing of Blood work, Scans and Biopsies. They seem to think I am a good Candidate for it since I was a Non- Responder the first time. I will start this treatment in March.I went to the Doctors on the 1st and I found out when I got home that the CO- PAY is $7000.00. The Medicines I will be taking this time are more Intense and the side effects will increase. Some of the Side Effects will include, loss of Appetite and Energy, Mood changes, Depression, Nausea, Headaches and Suicidal thoughts. I never thought I would be asking this for myself. I will need lots of Support and Patience with this Treatment from my Family and Freinds. I always say the Power of Prayer helps. I know from Enduring this Treatment Before, it is not going to be an easy road. I will be 55 in March and it's going to be Hard on my Body. Additionally my Health Insurance unfortunately does not cover some of the costs that I will have while going through this treatment. To help ease the Financial burdens of these expenses, I have set up this Fundraising page.I am Disabled due to problems with my lower Disk in my back, I Broke my neck and suffer with depression due to the fact of not working. I smashed the 3-4-6 vertebrae in a car accident years ago. I always worked hard and up to 8 years ago I would worked 7 days a week. With my last Treatment I had great Insurance. I am a private person and I hate asking for help. But this is the last chance I have so I have to go for it....Peace...Love...Be Happy.. Thank You.....KellyO.....Lets Roll......Peace...
P.S.UP DATE. 3-22-2012 I got so news today and it's very good in away. The Pharmacy got it straight today and I been frighting with them all this time. Finally I can start my treatment March 30th. I will still have to pay the co pay But I don't need the $7000.00 up front. The shot will run about $150 aweek and then the cost of the pills and after 5 weeks they put me on more pills. So yes the Power of Prayer helps out.I still need help if you can, I no times are hard, anything would go far. GOD BLESS..YOU ALL....peace.
