This fundraiser will help a teacher pay medical bills.

The pain began January 2010. After that, there were endless ER visits and doctor and specialist appointments. You'd think that being able to diagnose a gallbladder problem would be easy, but it wasn't in my case.

Hello, I am Nicole Stiers and I need financial help to cover medical expenses. I am an elementary teacher in a Christian school. Being ill, I had to use all my sick day plus more (resulting in a loss on money on my paycheck) two school years in a row. Every doctor, specialist, and ER visit also resulted in money owed. While I do have insurance, it certainly doesn't cover everything on a very limited budget. Getting sick just doesn't fit in, but it happens.

For over a year, I experienced pain in my abdomen. In April 2011, I finally had my gallbladder removed. While the pain is now gone, the bills still remain. I just can't make ends meet.

Some of the things I experiences: x-rays, HIDA scan, CT scans, ultrasounds of the abdomen, upper endoscopies, colonoscopy, a rude GI doctor (I did get a second opinion and continued with a new GI doctor), blood and other samples, diet changes, and multiple "try this and see me in a month" suggestions. 99% of these had to be done during my work hours.

Are you willing to help me get back on my feet? I would so appreciate it! Thank you!
