Hello! My name is Joyce and I am currently a freelance artist. I was recently diagnosed with arteriovenous (AV) malformation (Abnormalities in the veins) somewhere on my left collar bone. Sometime in 2019, I started having short episodes of pain in my left armpit and neck area which I thought was due to stress. The episodes grew more painful and more frequent so we decided to seek medical advice last year. I underwent several diagnostic procedures including lab tests, xray, ecg, 2ded, and mri that costs us a lot of money. My MRI showed small malformations on my collarbone area. After initial consultation with my vascular doctor, she studied my mri results and after a few weeks, called me for another check up. She said that our short term option is for rehab but would need to undergo surgery to remove the said malformation and to prevent it from growing further. This is essential to prevent the pain from getting worse and to prevent the malformation from further occupying the space for my healthy veins, arteries, and nerves (a permanent damage and numbness to my left arm).

Unfortunately, the malformation occurred in my left thoracic inlet so aside from my vascular and neuro doctors, we would need a thoracic surgeon for the operation. The surgery was quoted at USD 6.5k excluding the pre-op procedures, take home meds, and other miscellaneous expenses.

My freelance activities cannot build the said fee and I can't get more work because of the pain so I am asking for your financial help for me to overcome this affliction.
