Disabled Mother Seeks Grant Money For Medical Expenses And College
by Pam Moore
(Lonedell, MO, USA)
I am 40 years old, mother of three girls and wife of a loving husband. I have had a total of 11 surgeries to date.
The worst has been winning the fight against cancer. I have lost my left kidney to renal cell carcinoma cancer.
I also have had two disks in my lower spine removed and replaced with metal and plastic.
My gall bladder was removed due to polyps. I've had four surgeries in my stomach to try to remove scar tissue.
My family has stood by me for these things and prayed for my recovery. During this nine-year torture, my children have also had a few medical issues, and fortunately, miracles.
My oldest almost died when she cut herself shaving using bar soap as a shaving cream. She had contracted a viral infection. It took us four days to find an antibiotic to fight it.
My middle child was in St Louis Children's Hospital the first 30 days of her life. If it weren't for the hospital staff my baby would have died.
She was born with blockages in her intestines. Since then she has had to have two more surgeries.
My youngest daughter has been air med evacuated to St Louis Children's Hospital for a saliva gland infection that was blocking her windpipe.
Things seemed to be looking up. Then my husband got laid off as journeyman carpenter.
At the same time he learned he had a cyst in his testicles. He needs to have it removed, but he has no insurance. We are praying it goes good.
CAN ANYONE PLEASE HELP ME? I am a good person who has gone through more than my share of hard times. My family does not deserve to suffer because of more than a fair share of bills.
My car is broken down and I have only 16 payments left.
My oldest child is looking into college. How do I tell her it will be hard to pay for all the classes she needs for the criminal justice program she has her heart set on?
Thank you for your time. Mrs. Moore.
