When there's a bad accident and emergency healthcare comes into play, the patient and close relatives only want to be thinking about healing, not about their healthcare costs. I used YouCaring because more of every dollar goes to the actual patient than the other funding websites and that's what's important right now as we fundraise.
When my family was once again faced with surmounting medical costs for my sister's treatments, we felt hopeless.
Due to my sister's rare neurologic condition called RSD (reflex sympathetic dystrophy), the only place where she can receive her treatments is in Monterrey, Mexico and none of her medical bills are covered by insurance here.
A few months ago, she was told by her doctors, that in order to save her life, her right leg needed to be amputated.
Not knowing how my family was going to pay for these treatments, we started this YouCaring page. And so many amazing and generous people have supported Jessica and have enabled her to keep fighting once again.
To all the people that have donated, thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you for going on this journey with us. We are eternally grateful for all of your unending support.
And to the YouCaring company, thank you for creating an interactive and easy to use platform that is allowing my family to raise the money that we need.
We have been so grateful for the success of our page and we hope to reach our goal so that my sister can continue to get the necessary treatments she needs. Thank you so much YouCaring!
"We wanted to thank YouCaring for having this wonderful page! It was so easy for friends, family, and even people who we didn't even know to come and donate to help us with our fundraiser. YouCaring didn't charge us any fees. Thank you to everyone who donated and thank you to everyone at YouCaring. We are so grateful. Thanks again."
YouCaring was so helpful for my grandchildren when their father died young from cancer. His son was only 14 and his daughter 12. We are so grateful for the outpouring of support for these two very deserving young people. They are both excellent students, well-rounded, and will make the most of whatever educational opportunities are available to them. Our supporters are providing their link to a successful life. Thank you, YouCaring.
YouCaring has been amazing. I never imagined we would get the response we have gotten, and are still getting from donors. We are 1/2 way to our goal in less than a month. YouCaring has provided great service. Everything is set up perfectly, very user friendly and very reasonable percentage fees. They check in with you regularly, make sure all is going well, are available to answer questions and help. Never having done this before, I would highly recommend their services. Thank you, YouCaring.
YouCaring has been the perfect tool to blog and fundraise for our adoption. It's been part of our journey and will always have a place in our story! I love that I can post updates whenever I want to and post it directly on my Facebook page. It's been very easy to use and we highly recommend it! Thank you!
YouCaring literally saved my patient's life! I am a lung specialist who has been treating someone with a deadly and progressive lung disease. She was turned down for a lung transplant by two major medical centers in our state. There was only one center on the east coast that would consider her for transplant and she needed the funds not only to get her and her husband to Pittsburgh, but also to pay for more than $40,000 in expenses that are not covered by her medical insurance. Within days of posting the video we had thousands of dollars. In the end we surpassed our goal by raising over $66,000! In this case I can say without hesitation or exaggeration that YouCaring quite literally saved my patients life! If I have another patient who is in her situation I won't hesitate to make a page for them as well on YouCaring.
Being a small non-profit organization, every dollar truly helps. YouCaring makes fundraising easy, is completely free, with no strings attached, and even offers support when you have a question. The fundraising is quick, simple, and easy to keep track of, share, and manage. Thank you for what you do!!
When we started our adoption process, there were times when we felt like we were running this long, grueling race alone.
We are so grateful for YouCaring. It is such a powerful tool that brings people with the same heart together. We are encouraged to have received so much love, blessing, and financial support through this site, and that we are no longer running this adoption race alone!
The experience of having a loved one battle an illness can be a roller coaster of emotions and is stressful and draining. Friends, family, and loved ones have come together with this YouCaring fundraiser to make contributions and send love and support. It has been so inspiring and encouraging, and I know my friend and his family will have an easier time thanks to this fundraiser. YouCaring's interface was very easy to use, and I was able to set up the fundraiser and designate a family member as the beneficiary of the fundraiser. I also needed help at one point and had a great online chat with customer support. I highly recommend YouCaring for fundraising.
