On Jan 22, 2022, my sister was in a terrible car accident. She has been in ICU since the accident. Her right hip was dislocated, her pelvic was severely damaged, her right ankle was crushed, and 16 rib fractures and two fractures on her spine. The doctors performed surgery on her hip, pelvic and ankle the following day after the accident. She had been on a ventilator because she could not breathe independently with the fractured ribs. The doctors have started to wean her off of the ventilator. A few days later, while the nurses were attending to her and taking some more x-rays, they discovered that her left arm was broken, so they had to put a cast on it. She will be in a back brace to hopefully correct the fractures on her spine. I’m also helping to care for my nephew during these trying times. She needs all the blessings that anyone can send her way; the help will allow our family to take care of some of her responsibilities while she focuses on recovering.Thanks, You for The Blessin
Good Morning, (Link below)I have had a very stressful weekend with my PPO insurance and my providers. I had requested to have my insurance verified before I started in which they claimed they accepted my insurance. I asked about copays and they said when they bill they’ll let me know. No charges were made to my card from July 2021 to September 20th 20201. Now they’re saying the previous claims that were processed as $0 balances “will possibly get adjusted to the amount of my copay”. How does the billing department miss that for so many months when I asked months ago about this information? It’s my first time using insurance outside of Medicaid in my entire life. Now, my insurance has random claims like $45, $6, etc made by the same provider. When my insurance reached out to them the providers billing department said they don’t take calls on weekends, fine. But you emailed me with this information… on a Sunday. This includes a faulty link they sent me for a Telehealth appointment and l
Hello out there. I just started an account here almost a week ago. At the beginning some of my family were very supportive and I know that views are being made of my posts and shares through Facebook and Instagram. I have “friends” on social media but not too many in real life and I feel that because of my lack of personal relationships it is causing a lack of donations towards my cause. Is there any other ways to reach more interested donors than these traditional methods? I am trying to start a small gelato business and am getting discouraged by the seeming lack of support I have gotten. Can anyone guide me in the right direction please. I happen to be one of those kinds of people that has a lot of talent and skills but no money, no connections and not much support. Is there any other hope or have I just made a dumb decision?
Hello,I made a gofundme for my partner who is going to be going through multiple facial surgeries. Someone who has gender dysphoria and depression. On top of that this is something insurance doesn’t pay for so everything is out of pocket. I post it on a group page and I’m getting backlash because apparently this is only for the sick?!? No from what I’ve read and seen in the drop down menu before making this, this is for anyone who is needing the help. People are so ignorant and don’t care about the details. I made this to help them to be happy. So that there won’t be anymore suicidal attempts nor dysphoria. This is for a medical expense. It’s the cheapest since it’s out of country. In the US this would cost us more.
Hello I'm new to gofund.me. I'm extremely grateful for this opportunity. There's been times when I don't feel so confident about my fundraiser raising but I put it in the hands of my higher power and trust he will handle better than me. Keeping faith and the right attitude will impact the way the universe works for you. Good luck to all of you !Misty
I just want to share my story about my pulling hair disorder. It is unbearable. I can't afford a wig, so I rarely leave my house. I always wear a hat but can't go visit family and friends. It is depressing. The urge to pull my hair is unbearable. Does anyone have any advice?
I am new to this, but managed to create a go fund “majig”. I am not tech savvy, and don’t have social media platforms an what not. But if I don’t try I will never know the results, even if I don’t succeed I won’t live with doubt! I can say or tell anyone who asks me about going this route for help. As the days pass my situation worsens, not to mention many who decided to stay.
I’m really new to all this actually,(≖͞_≖̥)I just wanted to let you know as someone who’s barely grasping the concept of it being okay to ask for help……it is ＼(＾▽＾)／In every way you would know how to live, you did so and now it’s time to be carried by others with their help to get you there. You know who you are and with that, wouldn’t YOU want to help you? Taking that in mind I know you all will reach your goals and feel accomplished knowing you put yourself out there vulnerably in your circumstances to be caressed by the goodness of humanity. (⊃ • ʖ̫ • )⊃
First of all I am grateful for being here! Because of the situation I had, I have any friends to help me, I don't know anyone, I don't even know how to make a conversation, I'm sorry for this.All I want now is a normal life with normal problems, and I hope this time I can finally get one thanks of all of people here
