In a world filled with uncertainty, we often find solace in the belief that certain hardships will never touch us. But life has a way of teaching us otherwise. Today, I stand before you as living proof that the unexpected can happen to anyone. My name is Kimberly Lueck, and I am a Medical First Responder. I am reaching out to you, with a vulnerable heart, to seek your support in my uphill battle with healthcare.
The Harsh Reality:
In 2018, my life changed in an instant. A multi-level lumbar spinal fusion, a procedure meant to heal, left me disabled and stripped away everything I held dear. I lost my vehicle, housing, and property – my entire world turned upside down. Suddenly, I found myself reliant on Medicare, Medicaid, and low-income SSDI, causing a drastic drop in my income and further amplifying my struggles.
Complications and Negligence:
To add to my already dire situation, a series of medical malpractice and negligence incidents ensued. These devastating events led me on a path of unimaginable suffering, including a rare complex neurological disorder known as IIH (idiopathic intracranial hypertension), POTS dysautonomia, fibromyalgia, and a multitude of other debilitating conditions. My life has become an unrelenting cycle of chronic pain, visual disturbances, fatigue, and numerous other symptoms that rob me of even the simplest joys of life.
The Ongoing Battle:
My days are consumed by doctor appointments, tests, scans, and endless treatments. It’s a full-time job in itself, leaving me with zero quality of life. The weight of this burden is too heavy for one person to bear alone. Patient Care Advocates could provide the support I desperately need, handling calls, appointments, medical records, and referrals for top doctors and providers. However, their services require a down payment of $5,000.
The Dental Crisis:
Recently, I faced yet another blow to my already fragile existence. I underwent emergency root canals due to abscessed teeth, a result of medication side effects. Unfortunately, my insurance coverage has been exhausted, and I now face mounting dental expenses of around $5,000 to save my teeth. The financial strain is overwhelming, and I am at my wits’ end trying to find a way forward.
The Power of Compassion:
In this terrifying place, I find myself, I have come to realize that vulnerability is not a sign of weakness, but an opportunity to open our hearts to the kindness of others. Today, I am humbly asking for your help. Even if you cannot contribute financially, sharing this plea with others can make an incredible difference. Your support has the power to restore hope, not only in my life but also in the lives of countless others who suffer silently.
A Lifelong Caregiver in Need:
For over 18 years, I have dedicated my life to being a Medical First Responder, tirelessly caring for others. Now, I find myself on the other side of the equation, in desperate need of assistance. It goes against every fiber of my being to ask for help, as I have always been the giver, not the taker. But sometimes, life’s twists and turns leave us with no choice but to seek aid from the collective kindness of humanity.
The Value of Health:
They say that if you have your health, you have everything. Today, I can testify to the truth of those words. For nearly five years, I have fought and advocated for my well-being, facing insurmountable challenges along the way. It is an unacceptable reality that millions continue to suffer and lose their lives due to denied treatments, negligence, and deviations from
