Default Going to see Dr. Yakes!!!!

I just found that Dr.Yakes will see me, not sure of the date as when I called to set the appt. up Julie was not available.
I am so happy someone is finally willing to help me.
Anyway, where is a good place to stay, and things like that. Also how does sclerotherapy happen....
THanks
Kristie

Kristie,

I am going to see Dr. Yakes on the April 27th.
Let me know how soon you get in to see him. That would be cool if we could get together. If your appointment is at a later date we can still get together. I live in Colorado Springs which is 70 miles south of Denver.

Hank

I have an appt. on May 24th, but since I have no insurance I have to find out where I will get 30,000 dollars.
I am so stressed, and frustrated...here I thought that I would get it fixed expecting to have to put 5,000 or so up front, but 30,000!
Any advice, my primary doc is looking for other options but I am very fearful of other "options"........

Not sure if any of this will be helpful...but maybe worth checking out. I don't know enough about insurance...but does your state have resources?

Possible leads: (some are for children's organizations...but they might have adult leads for you)
Shriner's Hospitals
Grange
Philanthropy Guide
Ronald McDonald House Grants
Kiwanis
FACES: The National Craniofacial Association
Children's Chariities of America
Independent Charities of America
CFE Combined Federal Campaign
United Way
State Employee Campaigns
Operation Smile

another idea: is to contact your local media and see if you can get your story covered via article or tv.... many parents have done this in their areas and it has brought a lot of attention to the subject. Maybe it would be possible to coordinate a fundraiser with the media attention?

wish I could tell you more.

Corinne
