Please, help me keep her. A birthday to remember.

in #love6 years ago (edited)

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." -

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.

Thanks for your support, we are both looking forward to many more years of steeming with you all.


Thank you very much

God bless him

it's really great sir :)
If you are free, plz visit my blog once sir @r2cornell. ☺

@Jakir007 you have been flagged twice. Stay off my feed or you'll be receiving a lot more of them.

what is wrong with you!!

Thank you all for the support we really appreciate it. Since he wrote this without telling me he didn't have all the specific details surrounding my case. I had surgery when i was 2.5yrs old and while it was considered a complete repair I began having difficulties when I entered university.
I was fortunate to have the surgery covered by the Gift Of Life Foundation when I was a child, however at age 18 when I began having serious palpitations and random fainting spells I was over the age limit to qualify for any further aid. They did however offer some assistance in attempting to find me help elsewhere, but without the means to pay for the tests we are back to square one.
I have spent years going to the local hospitals and clinics, in addition to paying for innumerable tests that have not been able to discern the actual cause of my black outs. They do however suspect that it is an electrical issue.
I wrote this reply really for everyone who reads this post and think its a scam. My husband went out on a limb to put our story out there and since we truly have nothing to hide I am supplementing his post with the medical documentation required to verify its authenticity. thank you all again for your kind words and well wishes. Peace! :)

Don't donate any money to @crystalhuman he will scam you. He's playing on love and passion card talking how his wife is sick etc. , but he's completely liar and a fraud.

Do not trust him and downvote his posts.

Maybe someone neutral could call, that hospital, or in some other way verify that @crystalhuman & @ascendedmonkey's case is real, just to stop this trolling, I resteem some of these personal charity posts and upvote.

But many times I am still in doubt, are the papers real? People take pictures in a hospital with a big bandage, (in the back of my head I can hear some doubt, maybe it's a fake bandage, I want to see under the bandage, etc)... I would personally gladly send some SBD's and more actively push this campaign if I was a bit more convinced, but that might just be me I guess I also have some trust issues I guess...

Not that i think you're a hater. Just trying to rectify, and considering it is REAL I'm a bit touchy about it. There's obviously a reason why @steempromos has a rep of 1, while @crystalhuman is currently a 46. Just saying

Im not a "hater"?
Just think that it could be of value to figure out a way for you and your husband to prove that the condition was real to us and also verify that the money collected would go towards medical treatment. Exact amount and clearly stated goal. We would also like to see the receipt afterwards and maybe even pictures of the scars if there is an operation. I know it sounds frustrating, but credibility leads to bigger investments and engagement.

Show you her scars? receipts? For all of the $67 they made on their posts?
And what did you do to contribute? Click keys on the keyboard? Let me ask you? Did it hurt?
Seriously, go away, you’re an idiot!

Thank you for your input @crystalandbones.

This is certainly a better cause than 99% of the crap I see making it to the trending page.
Obviously, it’s real! Get the fuck out of here with this worthless comment!

I am sorry you feel this way @crystalandbones.
I was only trying to give some helpful hints on how to obtain more money fundraising, many people here have both health and financial issues, what makes people want to contribute to a certain cause is credibility and a clearly stated goal/goals and also some promise of a follow up. I also did contribute a little to @crystalhuman & @ascendedmonkey's case... I would really appreciate if you could leave me alone with insults and such, you are barking up the wrong tree here, only trying to help.

I wish more people would upvote this comment and help push it to the top, it's clearly more important than the current top comment.

Namasté my dear fighters <3
I am very touched by your story and I wish I could do so much more for you! It's so wonderful how much love you feel for each other! And I would also do anything for my loved husband, so it's so touching to see how you fight for your wife <3
Unfortunately I only have 4 SBD at the moment :(
But they will be sent to you right after commenting! And of course you get a resteem and an upvote!
I wish you the very, very best and so much love, light, peace and health! Sending you lots of good vibes! <3

Together we can reach so much Steemians, let's help!!! <3

You are too kind, and I deeply appreciate it. Namaste beautiful soul. <3

If you look, you can see the scar on my chest in the picture above as well.


Upvoted. Best of luck!

You just planted 0.25 tree(s)!
