In my early twenties, my world was shattered when my father was diagnosed with a chronic liver disease. He endured unimaginable pain and medical treatments for over seven long years. Our family was plunged into a never-ending nightmare of hospital stays, mounting medical bills, and crushing debts. Fresh out of college, I took on any odd job I could find to support my family while juggling my studies and hospital shifts. It was a relentless struggle.
We lost my father in December 2017, but the dark cloud of debt continued to loom over us. I worked tirelessly, picking up extra shifts and freelancing to keep our household afloat. Then came the lockdown, and our world crumbled even further.
Life post-lockdown has been a relentless rollercoaster of emotions, physical agony, and mental anguish. In the latter half of 2021, my body betrayed me. A paralytic attack struck the left side of my body, caused by a sinister infection in my cerebro-spinal fluid, resulting in debilitating vertigo attacks. Months of treatment left me anxiously pondering my job security while the debt continued to spiral, reaching a staggering $6,000.
After a year of battling the paralysis and infection, I sensed that something was still amiss. I relied on public transport for my daily commute, and one fateful day, my leg felt strange. Ignoring the discomfort for a few weeks, I finally sought medical help.
The diagnosis was a devastating blow. More than 70% of my right hip bone had deteriorated, rendering my body incapable of bearing my own weight. An emergency surgery was imperative, though only partly covered by my insurance. My world crumbled again, and I underwent the surgery, followed by months of bedridden recovery. No employer had the patience to wait for my extended absence, and I lost my job.
Since June 2023, I’ve been grappling with the overwhelming challenge of making ends meet at home, let alone tackling the mountain of debt, which has now soared to an insurmountable $15,000. All I fervently ask for is a chance to reclaim my life—a sum of $25,000-30,000 to help me recuperate from my medical ordeal and sustain myself until I can secure a job and rebuild my life.
