I need help please

Thursday, May 31st, 2007

My name is Lota Porter and I need help with my prescriptions that i take everyday for multiple health problems. I cant afford them and all my medical bills both. My insurance is Medicare and it don't pay for all my medical bills or all my medicine. I am 82 years old and just had my left breast taking off due to cancer. I go to radiation everyday and my insurance doesn't even pay for all of that. I have a set limit each year for medicine, hospital, doctor visits etc. I have been in the Obici hospital ER twice this month and my medicine i came home on i couldn't afford so i had to get new medicine. Today i went to pick up my new high blood pressure medicine an it cost one hundred and thirty dollars and i couldnt get it. I get a check each month but it is only nine hundred and eighteen dollars and i roughly pay out twelve hundred dollars a month not including food, doctor bills, medicine, or hospital bills. I owe over fourteen thousand dollars in medical bills just for this year. The insurance has pay on each of these bills that is the amount i have to pay and this year still has seven months left an my Medicare money is about to run out. Once it runs out i have to pay for all my medicine and doctor visits. Please help me if you cant i would be so thankful if you could.

Weight Loss

Wednesday, May 30th, 2007

I grew up as a fat kid. Even after trying to watch my weight through out my teen years I found myself still on the chunky side. Then I joined Weight Watchers. In a little over a year I went from a size 14 to a size 4. It is a miracle. I no longer have to squeeze into my clothes. I actually look and feel great.

I had a toothache this entire Memorial Day Weekend. A friend referred me to see the county dentist to have the tooth extracted on Tuesday after Memorial Day. I went to the county dentist at 1500 C Street at 7:30am. They opened at 7:40am. The receptionist took a copy of my birth certificate and social security card. At 11:40am, they asked my girlfriend my exact age, she told them 18, then they told me that I needed to be 21 in order to receive help. So…my girlfriend contacted her mom and she told her to take me to Western Dental. In the interim, her mom was making calls to see who can serve me. Mind you, my face is swollen, my right eye was closing. So…I went to Western Dental. They wanted $94 for x rays. Fortunately my girlfriend's mom had the funds to pay for it. Then, later they told me all of the bad news and either I had the money to get the dental work done or go home. So, my girlfriend's mom paid an additional $100 for them to take the down payment for me to get one tooth extracted. It is now 2:52 pm and I am still waiting to have the dental work done. They also stated I needed to have another tooth extracted, cavities filled, a root canal, and braces, because I needed to make space for my wisdom teeth that I have presently in my mouth. I asked if they could put the prescription in my girlfriend's moms name because I DON'T have money. I am 18, in high school, my mom receives medi cal, and I don't. They said NO they can not do it. So….I am a high school student, 18 going on 19, without funds to even purchase the penicillin that I require for this infection in my mouth.

Car Wreck

Monday, May 28th, 2007

I suffered a car wreck in February. As a result from that car wreck, I have been suffering some pretty bad back pain. The combination of medicines that I have been put on are quite costly. I have this recommended by friends who say this will save quite a bit of money.
