Family and friends of Michelle Bosquette are raising money to pay for uninsured medical expenses associated with transplantation.

Well, I’ve been terrible at keeping up!
I’ve been approved for Medicare coverage based on my ESRD finally! Insurance panic is over and I’m still actively listed for transplant!
What a horrible feeling of panic that was. Due to no fault of my own to be threatened with being removed from a transplant list because my own government changed the rules mid game.
The weather is getting colder and the costs of keeping warm go up here in Maine. I love the seasons but, this one puts the pinch on the pocketbook!
I Might have a DONOR!!!!
We haven’t gotten the go ahead yet but, waiting for initial blood work results! fingers crossed (and toes).
Cold morning today 11/12/18. they’re talking about snow coming in for Friday. Brrr!
Please remember to share my page with everyone you know. Every penny helps.
The fact is, even with Medicare, my medical expenses don’t stop. There are many things Medicare won’t cover 100% and some things they won’t cover at all.
My reality is that I may end up having to cover those costs which, over the lifetime of a kidney amount to tens of thousands. *My 1997 Transplant hospital bill was over $57,000. That was in 1997! My costs have never stopped since then. I really don’t know how my parents did it with us three kids. They didn’t, they had to declare bankruptcy twice and never recovered. I’ve not yet had to declare it but, without help I will.
Thank you again for your time and help. Please share.

Well, got bad news today. Due to the changes in Medicaid here in my state this year I’m losing my Mainecare (Medicaid).
I don’t qualify for Medicare B until I either start dialysis or have a transplant before the end of August.
Without insurance, they deactivate my listing on the transplant list.
This means my next step is to find insurance I can afford on disability.
Thank all of you who have given already or just shared my fundraiser on social media.
I hate asking for help because I’m a bit proud of my ability to overcome. This is something I have no power over.
Thank you for your help and altruism. #hopeis #DonateLife
