Panhandling is bad, and you're only embarrassing yourself. I didn't ask for money when my dad had a $300,000 glioblastoma (brain cancer) hospital bill.

Well, that's because of the old saying, "I owe you $3000, I have a problem... I owe you $300,000,  you have a problem."

I hope they try a fecal transplant before they lose any more colon.

Surgeons only know how to do one thing.

Are you jealous you don't have an awesome friend like that?

She looks like a solid 6; hardly smoking hot. Also, call me when she's down to 10cm. That's all I need.

Not giving is a choice. Being an insufferable dick while not giving is also a choice.

Shee-it. I'm really cashstrapped right now. But I pray for Lauren to receive the best care possible, as soon as she can. Subby, I am sure some awesome folks on FARK will help out a little bit.

If only there was some kind of a system where everyone puts in a little bit of their money in the form of taxes and then the unlucky few didn't get hit with unaffordable medical bills.

Hey subby, sorry bout your friend but there are many other options that will benefit her in the long run.
She needs a new docotr.

You probably should have. People have benefits for these sorts of things all the time, and many people are willing to buy a ticket or donate items for a raffle even if they don't know the person it's for. Unless $300k is no big deal to your family, it would have likely helped lessen the burden you all faced.

If I had the $5k to pay for her operation, I would in a heartbeat. As I won't even have any money to spare for this until I get paid next Friday, I'm happily doing anything I can to try and improve her life. You may see this as shameful, but I would abase myself far worse than this if it meant she could get better.

My sincere thanks to anyone who has donated, and anyone who will!

This.


She's been having these problems for well over a decade, and has seen countless doctors. Surgeons may only know how to do one thing, but her gastroenterologists have known how to do several. If fecal transplant would work, I'd poop in her myself, but unfortunately this is an auto-immune issue with her body eating itself from the inside out. If not for the prior surgeries, I have no doubt should would have succumbed to internal hemorrhaging or sepsis before I even met her.

My mother has ulceractive colitis. Had it her entire life. Got an idea of what your friend is going through. My mother was supposed to have a bowel resection done, but didn't want to live her life with a colostomy bag.

The transplant is showing good signs. Crohns and Colitis are auto-immune issues and that is what the transplant is for.

I wish I could help, but I am broke right now. Good luck.

She has my sympathy. My sis had UC and I am a Crohn's patient. Miserable farking ailments. My sis had the resection surgery and has taken nearly 15 years to have some semblance of recovery. I've been considerably more fortunate.

I'll see if I can get some scratch together.

You sound like a communist. Comrade.

 When's the last time you or someone you know found yourself/himself in an unfortunate situation and got hit with a big police department or fire department bill?  I'm guessing never, since in most places in the world, those are paid for with taxes.  I think at least the lifesaving parts of healthcare should be considered a similar service, and I am fortunate enough to live somewhere that agrees.  You can call it communist if you like, but I'd wager that particular cultural decision is more in line with socialism.

Colons are for wimps. I wasn't born with one, and it never stopped me from winning life.

i was being sarcastic.  i thought the ridiculousness of the statement was enough.

My Mom has Crohn's.  It sucks.
Maybe I can donate something on payday.
