SEEKING HELP FLYING DOWN to attend the Annual Meeting of the AUA and presenting a poster on Bacterial Prostatitis

I have been suffering from chronic bacterial prostatitis for over 3 years now. Mine is a particularly bad, complex case comprising of several bacteria that could kill me any day if spread over to other organs.

Today I am a student at Hood College in Maryland, and may have the option to attend the Annual Meeting of the AUA in Florida this May.

I thought I could prepare a poster outlining my very own data as a case study for the moderated poster session. This data would prove two things: the importance of testing, culturing from semen, as well as the under-diagnosed nature of BACTERIAL prostatitis.

Being a poor student as I am, I would like to ask for anyone's support who can afford to part with 10-20 dollars in order for me to travel there and present my opinion.

The conference is a week long, and I would estimate that I would need between 1000-1500 dollars to attend, including flying there. If anyone is interested in my case or needs more details, please let me know.

OK, this is still up. THey wont let me present, but I could look for a doctor to treat me with Zosyn (piperacillin-tazobactam).
