The Story (via crowdfunding site)
“Hospitals are scary.
Especially when you are in another country and 9 times out of 10 no one speaks your language.
Now imagine you are in this type of scenario, when you find out from your routine medical check up that you have a tumor and they want to schedule surgery immediately.
On top of the fear and the stress from language barriers and being in a foreign place, you now need to come up with the cash to have the procedure.
No more need to imagine, because this is what our friend Nati is going through. Right now.
Nati was recently accepted into the Peace Corp. After completing her contract in Korea, she was eager to start this new journey, excitedly looking forward to using her language skills to give back to a community in Panama. As part of her volunteering for the Peace Corp, she had to undergo a rigorous physical, which is when a tumor was discovered.
For the last few weeks, she has had to travel back and forth to a hospital almost 2 hours away for additional testing and second opinions and the expenses of the visits as well as the travel are starting to pile up.
She is tired. She is stressed. She is scared.
She needs our help.
If you can help her ease some of the financial burden, please contribute to this fundraiser.
Her current job contract is finished within a month, which will leave her without any medical insurance or a place to live. She has already gone through all of the money she had saved to return home and she doesn’t know where the money for the next procedure is going to come from.
Let’s take action. Let’s show Nati she isn’t alone in this.”
