I am a nurse and as a nurse, everyone knows that we have to be as healthy as we can to be able to protect ourselves from all the bacteria and viruses that we are surrounded with. And we also know that nurses in some countries are not paid very well. Read the story below:
This is my friend Russell. My friend and colleague here in Singapore.
Last week she just had the cold and fever. It was a virus, she knows. She asked for sick leave and rested. Two days after, her hands and feet started to get numb. So she asked for an extension of her sick leave. The next day, her right eyelid drooped down making her unable to see properly. She went for a check up as she was really feeling so unwell and the doctor admitted her. Who would know that a simple cold will get her something so much more.. and so much worse?
She was diagnosed with Miller Fisher Syndrome, a variant of Guillaine-Barré Syndrome, which involves paralysis of the eye muscles, problems with muscle coordination and muscle weakness. It is so rare that it only happens to 9 out of a million people. And she has to undergo treatment or she will be in a worse condition. She has undergone blood tests, CT scans, MRIs, and the most expensive treatment: Intravenous Immunoglobulin.
Unfortunately, she is not paid very well. And her medical bills are too high that she can’t even pay five percent of it. Her insurance will only cover a few thousand dollars and she doesn’t know where to get the rest. So I set up a fundraising campaign with Kenny to help her out.
I am knocking at your doors to please donate any amount to be able to help her pay her medical bills. We need your support and I hope you would share this to spread the word.
Any amount will be a big help. Sharing it means a lot to us. Please help us in any way you could and we appreciate you taking your time to read this. Thank you very much! Please click on the link below, or here.
