I am Morgan, 30 years old, living in New Jersey and working for a non-profit as their IT Manager.
Back in November of 2017, my right leg had developed severe swelling and blistery rashes. I had gone to urgent care at the time since my regular doctor’s office hours were closed and they were unable to assist me due to the severity of it and the doctor had me admitted to a local hospital. After a four day stay, the blistery rash had subsided but the swelling and discoloration continued. I was told to go see a vascular surgeon to get examined.
About a week later, once I managed to make an appointment, the surgeon determined that I had chronic lymphedema. He prescribed some medication, told me to purchase compression stockings and do my best to always keep it elevated. While the overall problem doesn’t affect me from working, which I have been able to since January, that one month of time off has unfortunately caught up to me in regards to medical bills and other bills.
Through my organization, I was able to apply for and was granted an emergency assistance grant of $2,000 which has helped. I’ve been able to scrounge around a little bit from friends and family as well, but I am still behind. I’ve been doing what I can to save each month, such as terminating my TV service, cutting off my gas and selling a lot of my personal belongings.
I am asking for help with $5,000, which will allow me to catch up on my bills and give me a little breathing room to get stable once more. I appreciate any help that could be given and I will definitely provide supporting evidence to show my current situation if asked (I didn’t feel comfortable posting it here).
