WE NEED YOUR HELP

Good Morning every one.   My name is Narciso J. Brucelo Jr., 43 years old, married with four kids (one is autistic and one is special child).  Our postal address is: Barangay Rizal, Sorsogon City, Philippines.  I tried to write this email to seek assistance from all over the world.  Here is my story:

Last December 20, 2008, I was diagnosed with Colon Cancer stage 4.  On December 27, 2008 I was operated on my transverse colon to remove the tumor at Makati Medical Center here in the Philippines. After the operation, i was undergoing a chemotehrapy at  the same hospital.  Good that I have a health insurance, but we all know that treating cancer is very expensive and the health insurance is not enough for my medication.  It is in this regard that I am appealing to the benevolent hearts to help me cross this battle.  Please help us pray that we may overcome this trials.  If you have excess money please help us financially.  We really need your help now.

Thank you very much and may God Bless us all

Single Mom Losing Everything - Can You Help?

I desperately need help right now. I have always found a way to "pull myself up by my bootstraps", but right now I have reached a place that I can describe as standing at the edge of a great abyss, wanting and hoping to be able make the leap across, but knowing that I cannot make it on my own this time. As I have read in some of the postings of your site, I too have always tried to help others whenever and however I can. I have tought my two children to always acknowledge the humanity in everyone, especially those who are having a hard time; to not only give what you can to the homeless man you see on the street; but to stop for a minute and look him in the eye and let him know even for that one moment there is someone who cares, is not repulsed by him;who acknowledges his humanity. And I have always gained something from the things that I have been able to do for others...it always makes me feel good. I recently read a quote from the Talmud, "Kindness is the highest from of wisdom." I do believe this is true.

I am a single mother of two children, my 11 year old son has been suffering with severe depression for months now. I just lost my job due to the fact that I missed considerable days dealing with Max's illness.
Today is the 3rd of the month and my landlords are calling threatening to begin eviction measures if I do not have their rent now! My car is a 1987 model and has no heat or defroster, it's registration and tags have been expired since August 2008 and I have received two tickets for driving without current registration and tags, Both my daughter and I seriously need an appointment with the eye doctor and new prescriptions for our glasses and we are both months overdue for our annual gynecological appointments, I no longer have a home phone and my kids' cell is currently disconnected...mine will be any moment, perhaps today...my internet may be turned off at any moment also-my kids need it for homework..and I feel so afraid that any moment I will be "cut off" from means to help my kids and myself. My auto insurance is due. I lost our health insurance last August, retroactively after my son underwent hand surgery in October;I could not pay premiums for Sept and Oct and subsequently I now owe thousands in medical bills. We have literally been living on bread and peanut butter. All of my utility bills are serously overdue. I know this all sounds so pitiful, I am scared and feel alone. My parents were killed in an airplane crash when I was 8 years old and I really have no family...my childrens' fathers do not participate in their lives..no grandparents either.

I currently owe for two months of my son's counselling and at his appointment yesterday was informed that we cannot return until we have paid at least half of what I owe. He really needs this help every week. The stress of all of this is weighing so heavily on me, I am having a hard time staying focussed.I have made it through a lot in my life...even 3 spinal surgeries from 2000-2005.

Right now I really, really need to know that someone out there cares and wants to help me get back on my feet. I know that I CAN find a new job,continue on and not only care for my family, but also again be able to help others...I just need to get across this abyss and hit the ground running on the other side.

Thank you so very much for establishing this site. Thank you to any and every one who cares enough to take the time to read this. If you can help us, it will be so greatly appreciated. Thank you all.

Sarah had an aneurysm

I live in Kemp Mill, in Silver Spring, Maryland. In mid-November of 2008 a young woman in our community suffered a cerebral aneurysm. This lovely woman, Sarah, is a beautiful and kind 36 year old physician, divorced with 2 young daughters.

Sarah's former husband lives in a nearby community with his second wife and infant son. Fortunately, the girls, shared by their parents and as such, have remained in their father's familiar, loving, and nurturing care since Sarah fell ill.

Of course we all constantly pray that Sarah rehabilitate herself so that she can resume her normal life and be able to again mother her daughters. Sarah  is an surgical phonologies  and has worked in a practice in her county of residence.

I must admit that I am not certain of her insurance benefits or the level to which she insured herself in the rare event  of catastrophic illness. Also, Sarah parents, have - understandably - chosen to remain private about Sarah's diagnosis and her day-to-day condition. No visitors are allowed and details of her progress are largely unknown.

I am however, very close to one of Sarah's closest friends, who happens to spend her days with Sarah's in the hospital. This friend has earned the Angel of the years award by me, but that is another story. This friend tells me that the doctors have no expectation of Sarah's recovery process, because it is an anomaly to have someone of this age survive such cerebral hemorrhage. The extent of the brain damage is still unknown and there is no expected schedule of recovery. That is, however, not to say that recovery is not possible or expected. Sarah is capable of knowing who enters her hospital room, yet she is unaware of how she knows the person. Is it her nurse or friend or relative? Sarah's brain then works on the connection until she exhausts herself and knocks herself out for hours as a result of the mental exhaustion. Sarah knows she has 2 daughters, but is unaware of their ages and is unable, at this time, to relate to them as she normally did  as a mother. Sarah now brushes her teeth, but works so hard at it until her gums bleed. She then needs a long nap.

Sarah is currently in D.C.'s National Rehabilitation Hospital and receives a whole host of therapy all day long.  Of course she has made great progress from when the event first occurred and all remain optimistic. The urgent issue we have encountered is that the hospital wanted to discharge Sarah this week. Her parents were successful at having that extended until March 1, due to the fact that Sarah is not insured for home or out-patient therapy. Even March 1 simply buys some time for securing a way to either remain in the facility, or to arrange for the coverage needed to resume her therapies.

Sarah's parents were told that if she became a ward of the state and went on Medicaid, that she would be entitled to continue treatment. However, Beth is currently ineligible for Medicaid as she owns the home that she lives in. Her parents fear Sarah losing her home and are seeking help in finding ways to get her the therapy without losing her only main asset.

Without coverage her therapies would be prohibitively expensive and un-affordable as an out-of-pocket expense. Sarah's mother, approached one neighbor of ours who is an attorney, and she in turn approached me, as another attorney with some experience in the medical industry. This is clearly a special case and I do not know who has experience in matters such as these.

My long-winded question to you is can you please direct us to someone who could help?

Thank you so much in advance for your time and attention to this case, and in general, for all the kindness and empathy you flourish on so many others in need. Thank you and looking forward to hearing from you.
All the best
