US$475.00raised of $2,500.00 goal
My name is NeddaJoy, but many address me as NJ. I’m a bit nervous, but more predominantly so grateful for this site! I will try to tell a long story expediently.
I am a cancer survivor whose survival involved multiple surgeries. While hospitalized 4 post surgical drains remained down into each surgery site. These are absolutely pertinent to recovery, but unbelievably uncomfortable, and can be painful and perilous. They are generally dangling or safety pinned to the patient’s gown. While laying in bed two solutions came to me! (the lightbulb ). I invented a hospital gown and waterproof belt to hold the post surgical drains securely. And could actually be used at home should the patient have to leave with any remaining drains.
The designing and patenting process has taken years. I am now pursuing retirement (though I will continue parts of my work. I’m currently attaining a safe car, and preparing for a financial shift with these changes.
I have financed every penny to bring this dream to fruition. There are Government fees, attorney fees, supplies, time, studies, etc. involved..years of these requirements. I am now on my FINAL MAINTENANCE FEE to complete my patent ownership for the next five years, giving me a final opportunity to sell the intellectual properties to folks who develop medical inventions.
The issue is, this last fee is MORE THAN DOUBLED the prior payments required’. It’s so hard and humbling to say….. I NEED YOUR HELP. I am on a time budget so all financing could help me SO MUCH! If I can sell these beautiful patient support inventions. not only will my retired life be so much less worrisome. BUT I CAN COME BACK TO GOGETFUNDING and help others. Thank you for considering my plea. Sincerely, N

This again, is a photo of my son and I. The reason I feel inspired to bring these inventions and patents to fruition is not only the dire need for post surgical help, though that is completely valid.It is my family. I want to bring these inventions through to completion. . . . .
