The Story

My older sister Shannon is a teacher and a grad student who has coped with chronic health issues for twelve years. She has been diagnosed with bile reflux disease and, more recently, PCOS. Her health insurance only covers a portion of her medicines and tests, and she needs to go to an endocrinologist for her PCOS, who is only 25% covered by her insurance. While she works full time and is gradually chipping away at her doctoral degree, she currently does not make enough to cover everything she needs. She is hoping that her friends and loved ones will be able to help her get back on her feet, so that she can finally concentrate on feeling better and finishing her degree.

Thank you to those of you who have donated and also shared my fundraiser!

I also deeply appreciate those who have reached out to me. Being in poor health is isolating and embarrassing, and while I have no desire or use for pity, I am really grateful for people's love and understanding.

Paying for a few of my medicines has become more urgent in my list of priorities, so I am clarifying that need in this update. I have been able to afford the bile reflux meds that aren't covered by my insurance with the help of friends. 

Thank you again for your compassion. While it took me the better part of a year to admit that I needed help, I am thankful to have encouraging people in my life, who remind me that it isn't weak or bad to ask for help when you need it.
