In the last year, I have faced many hurdles with my health. But they were not the first. My medical issues started back in 2005 when I was diagnosed with Bladder Cancer. After surgery and chemo, I was given a good bill of health. Things were going well medically but the medical bills pilled up. In 2008, I went back to get a checkup and the cancer was back. We decided to do a round of Chemo. After this round, it appears that I am back in remission. Beat another scare. Then in November of 2009, I was diagnosed with Acute Aortic Stenosis. This required me to have a heart valve replacement. I had the surgery on December 1, 2009. After my initial healing time, I went back to work. Then in June of 2010 I had a heart attack and stroke and was back in the hospital. Trying to cope with the setbacks have been very difficult but I am a strong person. Move forward to August and a trip to NYC where I contract Bacterial Menengitis which almost killed me. I was on life support and multiple antibiotics to bring me back to normal. I spent 10 weeks with a PICC line and now I am on disability until the end of the year. I need to pay for medicines, my daily bills, food, living and I am just getting in a hole. I am usually the one who gives for everyone. But right now I am in need. And this hurts me to have to ask for any assistance, but anything can help.
