My colon surgery

Campaign Created by: Kent McManigal

The funds from this campaign will be received by Kent McManigal.

Goal: USD $10,000
Raised: USD $ 545

On April 4, 2023 I have to undergo surgery to remove four or five inches of my sigmoid colon. There's a dangerous polyp there that keeps growing back and which has been unable to be removed during a colonoscopy due to its depth and flatness. It has high-grade dysplasia, which means it is at great risk of developing into cancer if not completely removed.

My insurance isn't great. My part-- after the insurance has paid their part-- will be close to $10,000.00 (or probably more, if I'm being realistic). I have to pay $1500 to the surgeon before the surgery, and the facility fees in a couple of weeks. I don't have the money. I am able to borrow part of that, but will need help paying it back. And covering the rest of the expense, whatever that comes to.

I don't want to have this surgery... but I don't want this to turn into colon cancer even more. Your help is greatly appreciated, and please share this with anyone who might want to help and who is able to.

Thank you so much.

First, I want to thank everyone who has helped so far.

One week from today I have to start paying for things related to this surgery. Particularly the "facility fees", which I have no idea what they will be until I get there for my preregistration next Tuesday.

Two weeks from today is the surgery, and I have to pay the surgeon over $1400 before then.

So, if you could help-- by donating or by sharing this-- I would appreciate it so much!
