I have a friennd that is like a mother to me! She is having to undergo a stomach removal because of many years of stomach problems. The only other solution would be to have a pacemaker put in to help with her issues but this would cost her $50,000.00 and is not coverd by her medicaid or insurance. I have heard the life expectancy on this kind of surgery is not very long. She has sufferd so much in her life and I think right now in this state of mind dying is probably some sort of relief to her. I personaly think she is way to young to die and I am trying to find some way to help her! If anyone has any advice for me please let me know. There is not much time left and there has got to be something that can be done! I am at my wits end and have no clue where to start!
Thanks, Amy
