Shawn Asked: Please Help Financial Aid Appeal?

This is my 3rd appeal, 1st time bad student, 2nd: ruptured my spleen, 3rd: Hemolytic Anemia blood problems. I also will have Medical documents as well as a written recommendation by my nurse and doctor

Hello. I am writing to appeal my financial aid. During the spring semester of 2011, I was just previously recovering from a ruptured spleen although my surgery was successful my body was severely struggling produce enough red blood cells for my blood. Causing me to be diagnosed with Hemolytic Anemia. In which case during the Spring Semester I was forced to spend much of my days in the hospital I accumulated nineteen on and off overnight stays in the hospital over a three month period not counting the days when I was present just for check ups and treatment.

I take full responsibility for not being able to handle my academics and I do not blame my illness in any way. Regardless of my health conditions I should have prepared myself, I should have been able to overcome any obstacle that threatened my education. I regret not being able to do so. I believe a great education is the core in which the foundation of a successful life is built upon. There are many things in life people take for granted and after going through these tough times I feel that I will never take anything for granted again. I just hope its not too late to be what I might have been. I have fully recovered and since I am a new person I've learned in life that If I want to succeed I must have an unrelenting diligence for the goals I crave to achieve. No longer will my conditions or any obstacle ever stop me from becoming who I want to be. It will only enable me to show that I am even stronger than I thought I was by overcoming the obstacle and accomplishing my goals.

Through these times I've learned that my education means the world to me and that when something is important to you, you protect it, you give your time, and hard work, you don't allow anything to ever come between you and it. Not even your health. These are the steps that I am going to take to become the best student I can be. I will be setting up a meeting with my academic adviser making a detailed plan on how I will succeed in school. We will make detailed studying schedules and arrange for meetings throughout the semester. Next I will go to a counselor to help with stability and focus. I want to take every action that will help me prepare and take my education as seriously as possible. I will also learn to have a great communication with my professors receiving feedback on how I can become a better student. I will be visiting the tutor centers located on campus to help maximize my learning experience. I will also be using the library to study in a area that is free from all distractions when I study I want my attention to be fully on my work allowing me to be as productive as possible.

A great education is so essential in this world and I know it holds the key to many doors I want opened in my life. The University is where my heart is and I would love nothing more than to continue my education here. When I look back on my life I want it to be something I am proud of, I wanna know I gave it everything I had and that I was strong enough overcome everything that life through at me. Thank you for your time and consideration.

I have since been healthy the last 3 months and have doctor documentation to prove so thanks for reading and any help you can provide.
