This Saturday, it will be exactly 6 weeks until I go to get my Angio!
Financially, I have a long way to go to afford this, but even if I am paying for the rest of my life, it will be worth it to get my life back.
I don't want this to be a burden to my husband, and I will do all possible to get a job so I can pay for this. I truly thought I would receive more support from people around me, but I guess everyone has priorities and responsibilities elsewhere.
What makes it worse is, my Provincial & Federal Governments won't cover under the Federal Health Plan, nor will my Extended Health Plan through work - get this, because it isn't recognized!! Damned if you do....I mean if only the ministers would acknowledge this as a viable treatment - things would be different!!
Anyway, If anyone wants to, or can help, please go to http://funds.gofundme.com/hnm4

- DX in '01 with MS; in Jan 02, Told it was PPMS "the good kind" whatever that means.... The progression of my MS has been a long and arduous journey, the last 5 years specifically. I went from complete independance (I drove, went to the mall, movies etc) to the point I am at now. I haven't been to a grocery store in about 3 years (I love grocery shopping), Ikea it has been about 5 years, Costco, at least 5 years - SUCKS!! My DL expired last birthday, and I didn't renew right away for two reasons - I didn't want to drive because of my MS (being responsible) and 2, I couldn't afford the renewal fee (cut my wage by $4 per hour due to the economy, which led to apathy on my part) Married since 1994 to my AMAZING husband, Dan; no kids but we have the freedom to travel - and travel we do!
