MAYDAY,MAYDAY, This is your Captain speaking...
Now that Christmas and those festivities are over it is now time to begin planning for the New Year and what you want it to bring.
My title to this blog says it all for what I am planning. I need some help.
About a week ago I was told I will need a major artery repair.If I was back in Australia the cost would be covered in a public hospital.Here in Bangkok I am reliant on my health insurance and when they were approached they said they will not help.Classed it as a pre-existing ailment even though I have had no problems with this before.Here insurance companies change the rules to suit their own requirements and it is totally legal apparently.
So I now have the goal of raising approx $12000USD in a short space of time.About 6 weeks to be exact.
A little bit of background.The artery I have to have repaired is one of the major ones that comes off the aorta,that is the big artery that comes off the heart for those of you who dont have any anatomy in your kit. It feeds the blood into the right side of the chest and into the right arm.
Already I have problems with circulation into my hand and it "falls asleep" often and I have less strength than I used to.Makes typing and writing and so many other tasks difficult.If the artery fails completely my hand will die within a few days and then that will move up my arm and my whole body will die.Needless to say this is quite painful and even reduced blood flow is causing angina like pain in my chest.
So I want to have a SALE!!!! A really BIG BIG sale.A SALE for my life so that you guys get the benefits as I do.
What I am offering.
1. I am going to make a standing 20% discount in my Artfire store www.artfire.com/users/Aardvark until Valentines day.
