I am aiming to get your attention and your sympathy, my wife's life is literally at stake. Her birthday is on March 22nd, less than a week away.
We live in a country where it is very hard to make a living (Trinidad & Tobago).
I seem to have a hard time setting up a #GoFundMe campaign, I don't know if it's because I feel bad asking for handouts or what. Steemit on the other hand, I have no problem opening up to a bunch of complete strangers, and asking you all for a little help. I feel like this is the better option for my crowdfunding endeavor since I don't actually have to ask for money, only your upvotes and resteems.
The reason I am here writing this post right now is because I would like to be able to pay our bills as well as cover our travel expenses to get to the hospitals in the USA. I want to be able to feed my wife healthy, organic, real food. Most importantly, I absolutely need to be able to afford her doctor's visits that she needs for her heart, because my beautiful wife was born as one of the unlucky infants who ended up with Tetralogy of Fallot.
Tetralogy of Fallot (teh-TRAL-uh-jee of fuh-LOW) is a rare condition caused by a combination of four heart defects that are present at birth (congenital).
These defects, which affect the structure of the heart, cause oxygen-poor blood to flow out of the heart and to the rest of the body. Infants and children with tetralogy of Fallot usually have blue-tinged skin because their blood doesn't carry enough oxygen.
Tetralogy of Fallot is often diagnosed during infancy or soon after. However, tetralogy of Fallot might not be detected until later in life in some adults, depending on the severity of the defects and symptoms
With early diagnosis followed by appropriate surgical treatment, most children and adults who have tetralogy of Fallot live relatively normal lives, though they'll need regular medical care throughout life and might have restrictions on exercise." -https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/tetralogy-of-fallot/symptoms-causes/syc-20353477
We have not been able to afford to see her doctors for years and we desperately need to get her in for a check-up. It doesn't cost anything to upvote and resteem this post. I think that's why I am able to ask for your help. You have nothing to lose. But I do, and I will do whatever I have to do to protect the most precious love of my life.
Our names are Simone and Eddie. We are 26 and 33 years old. We met in a group on Facebook called Namasté, almost exactly 2 years ago. A very long story cut really really short, we immediately fell in love and I flew from the USA to Trinidad to be with the woman I am now proud to call my wife.
Simone is an artist and she can be found at @ascendedmonkey - She is amazing and I love her to pieces, she deserves all the best things in life but would humbly settle for much less. I am going to make sure she doesn't have to. With your help it would be a lot easier. I just need help from you, together we are powerful people, we could easily be on our way to getting my wife some much needed medical care. All I ask is for your upvotes and resteems, and if you're feeling altruistic, a donation.
We are both entrepreneurs, in today's economy you know how stressful that can be. I work full time and so does she. Even if we made 5 times what we make it still wouldn't cover the hospital costs, it's sickening that people have to resort to virtually begging for handouts online to get any kind of assistance. At the least, in countries without free medical. (I've heard Socialist healthcare isn't always that great)
Eventually having the funds to grow our own sustenance on a piece of land somewhere in Peru is our aim, it's been a bumpy road but we are fighters and we will succeed no matter what.
