Many people feel that crowdfunding for medical care is questionable.
I got calls and emails about this all the time. Many believe that crowdfunding is being used instead of insurance. For example, instead of having life insurance to pay for funeral and expenses that are created around someone’s death, the people go and crowdfund.
Instead of having health insurance, people crowdfunding for medical care. I want to bring attention to the individuals who have health insurance and still need help. I am talking about individuals who are no longer working because of their health and need help paying the doctor visit co-pay. I am talking about people who are not working and have trouble paying health insurance premiums. There are people whose medications cost hundreds of dollars. They can get well. However, if they do not have enough in their budget, they may eat a lot less. Poor nutrition is the enemy of healing. To get healthy, you need your medicine and good, healthy meals.
I am working with Celebrate Life Cancer Ministry to provide for a few families in Los Angeles facing these exact problems. Rhonda Santifer who founded Celebrate Life Cancer Ministry has identified people in need.
“I get calls every week,” says Santifer. “They ask for help and resources to just get to the doctor for their follow ups or treatments.”
Going to the emergency room is not an option for regular cancer treatment. The emergency room is for sudden illness. Celebrate Life Cancer Ministry is raising money to help people get healthy again by making sure they can get to their doctor’s visits. You can help by giving $2.50 a day for 30 days.
We’ve also got some great goodies for those who give!

Being injured on the job can be a complicated situation. Many of my coaching clients became business owners because they were hurt on their jobs and needed to do something else. I’ve heard a lot of the stories. Having a personal injury lawyer on your side can make all the difference in the world. The system does not work that well. Sometimes you can lose benefits when you don’t know what is going on. One client who started his own business after being hurt as a firefighter told me that having a great lawyer gave him peace of mind. He knew his situation was covered and did not have to second guess the choices that were made.
There is a whole worker’s compensation check list you should be using. It includes things like
__ the accident report and written statements about the accident
__ pictures of your injury, where you were hurt, anything that caused it (puddle on the floor, broken equipment, stairs with no handrail, etc.)
__ records of medical treatment (doctors’ reports, prescriptions, Emergency Room forms, and bills)
You can get the entire list at OSHA
My client had done all these things. He was focused on getting well, not worried about compensation or job loss. The basic Worker’s compensation laws are about the same in every state but getting representation is always best.
If you do get hurt, you have to make sure you tell your supervisor, get medical care , make sure your claim is filed and be clear about how your injury is related to work. This is where your lawyer can make all the difference. He or She will be sure to get those areas covered for you.
