Help writer and activist Fran Varian survive and obtain life sustaining health care while writing her book about women & the health care system in the US.
In Fran’s own eloquent words:
"I have made peace with the fact that I live with a heart infection that will take my life, even though it will always make me angry that this infection is curable. And that the wealthiest nation on the planet makes certain antibiotics so expensive people cannot afford them even to save their own lives. But I’m not quite ready to go anywhere yet. And a cardiologist can very likely help me manage my heart damage and live a much healthier existence in the present moment… I’m asking for $6500 to live off of for the next year to 15 months. This would enable me to see the specialists I need to see, find and maintain a relationship with a good primary care provider and maybe access some pain relief in the form of bodywork for the first time in many years."
Fran, I am angry, too, and I am with you in this fight. You are asking for so little in the grand scheme of things. You deserve this ten-fold, twenty-fold, FIFTY-fold.
Everyone, PLEASE repost Fran’s request and give what you can.
