My names is Dana Dawson. I've never made one of these so I'm not sure what to say...Im 27 years old. I had my daughter hayden at a young age, and her father and I have been together almost 12 years! I found out a while back that I had a congenital heart defect Pulmonary atresia, in which blood can't flow from the right ventricle into the pulmonary artery. I also have pulmonary regurgitation that is basically a leaky valve and causes blood flow to flow backwards. I basically need surgery. With our insurance the remaining cost will be $32,000 give or take a few grand! I need basically $5,000 down, unless I go into a state where my life is in jeopardy I have to pay the five thousand before surgery. My daughter is nine. She is my absolute best friend, my baby, my heart and soul all wrapped into one. My daughter is everything to me! I want to be around to protect and live her for as long as I can!.
Quick back story.... I was a heroin addict for about 4 years. Thank god I have an amazing partner who stayed by my side and helped me through it. I managed to get clean and stay clean im current almost 5 years sober now! The reason I'm saying this is because I cannot get a personal loan my credit is shot. As I'm sure you could probably imagine. I know dark and I know stress and fear, but let me tell you the stress and fear of knowing you need a surgery not knowing if you'll get it in time is beyond anything I've ever been through before. If you wouldn't mind donating anything even as small as a $1 and passing this on to someone you know it would mean the world to me! I appreciate everyone who read this and who donates
Thankyou and God bless
