Yes, I am a chronic pain/illness survivor. Thanks to those of you that donate to me I am able to continue my battle to survive. Until you have been struck down by chronic pain or illness you can never fully appreciate what a person goes through on a daily level living like this. I have enclosed my video to try to give you a bit of an understanding of what it takes for me to do the simplest of things. The rest is done by my caregivers. I am grateful to have a good staff of caregivers at this time. They do everything for me, cooking, shopping, bathing me, shampooing my hair, Helping me to move, and a million other things. It is not easy to find good people to work for you and I am blessed. I am so happy that my main caregiver Rene is recovering slowly from his surgery and is able to help me on a limited basis. Thank you for donating and please continue to share this link wherever you can. Many blessings, Billie
A big Thank you to those of you who have donated recently. Without you I would not be here. One of my main caregivers had an emergency appendectomy last week and it’s thrown everything out of balance for me because he does so much. He’s the one who transports me, lifts me up, and does hundreds of other things for me. I have three different caregivers that work for me at different times. He is the one who takes care of my personal business and that I trust the most. Of course he’s not happy about it either. I know we will get through this but it makes life more challenging. Then it already is. Any Donation is received with gratitude because I know it’s given with love. Many blessings, Billie
I want to give a special shout out to those of you that donate monthly Kenneth, Jay, Clydeen, Linda, Gypsy, and Pete. Because of you I am still here. I appreciate everyone who donates no matter how small. I am fighting for my life and I appreciate your joining me in this fight. Many of you are having a difficult time financially and I appreciate your sacrifice on my behalf. Words seen inadequate when I think of all the love I have received from each one of you. With love, Billie
This morning I came very close to falling on the floor again. I twisted my foot, the one that is already severely damaged, and am in a great deal of pain. I do walk with the walker, but the weakness in my legs is so severe it’s hard for me to support myself anymore. It’s difficult watching your body deteriorate. I know that many of you care and want to know what’s going on with me. So I thought I would give another health update. Any donations would be greatly appreciated. With love, Billie
A Health Update. The foot that was injured in September once again has hematoma accumulating and is completely black. I have not been able to walk since that accident, but at least I could stand, Now the pain is so bad that I cannot do that. I am receiving treatment, but once again the doctors have no clue as to when this will get better. Ever since the September accident my health problems go from one thing to another. I have become totally incontinent and that just adds to the misery. At this time I just cannot post a very uplifting message because I’m going through so much physically. I do thank all of you that continue to donate and especially those of you that are making monthly donations. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. With love, Billie
I am so grateful to those of you that continue to support my efforts to remain in my apartment and be as independent as possible. It’s not an easy road, But I desire have as much life as possible no matter what the circumstances. Thanks to those of you that support me with your donations-because of that I’m Still Here. With gratitude, Billie
My sincere thanks goes out to those of you who recently donated. There are those of you who understand what I’m saying about being without family, bedridden, and trying to survive. Thanks to the donations I have received over the past fifteen months I am still here. Thousands of people a day read the inspirational messages that I post throughout the Internet. Your helping me is helping so many others as well. We need to be a light in this world that is filled with so much darkness. Your donations are humbly received with gratitude. Many blessings, Billie
There is no duty more important than expressing your gratitude to those who through their gestures have changed your life and touched your heart. I sincerely thank each and every one of you, who through your charitable donations have made it possible for me to meet some of my repairs needed due to vandalism, More importantly, you have allowed me to reach out, through my free public work, to help those who are in more desperate need than me for the gesture of a helping hand in their greatest time of need. I’m enclosing a link where you can read about what has been going on in my life lately. Many blessings, Billie

For those of you that do not know me please scroll down this page and you will read comments by those who personally know me. One is from a friend I have known for 50 years. I have posted a video that shows how I live in lieu of a picture of myself. The video shows with clarity the dilemma of my situation of having to be taken care of by caregivers and not having a family to fall back on. Your donation, in any amount, is greatly appreciated. Many blessings, Billie
A sincere Thank You to those of you that reached into your hearts and donated to me over the past week. Without you I would not be here now. You are keeping me alive and I am grateful. My life is far from perfect, but I still want to live as long as possible. With sincere gratitude, Billie
I would like to say THANK YOU my Dear Friends who have helped me out, this past week, and supported me when I needed it the most. You heard my desperate call and responded. You give me reasons to hope! It's easy to be thankful when you are being blessed; the challenge is to be thankful when times are tough. It is difficult to live having to be taken care of by others. Without you I would not be able to be taken care of and have a roof over my head, as this is a constant need. I know that everyone who donated will be blessed many times over. I Love You All Very Much, Billie
My deep appreciation goes out to those of you that have been so kind and generous to me. I really appreciate all that you’ve done for me over the past thirteen months. I’ve seen several medical specialists and the consensus is that I will not be able completely walk again after the accident in September. This is devastating for me and is raising the cost of caregiving. It’s what I already knew because I live inside of this body. Would you consider a donation? I am willing to do spiritual work for the donation or else send you a copy of my book. No matter what I am thankful to those of you that have been a part of my journey.
With your help I could remain in my apartment and be taken care of and not homeless. So please help a woman, who is physically equivalent to someone 85 years old, have a bit of comfort and remove the worry and stress from her life. I have been a strong independent woman all of my life and I want to remain independent as much as possible. Please watch my video to understand how I have been living for several decades.
No donation is too small! I thank you in advance for your help.
My deep gratitude goes out to those of you who have recently donated. You are literally keeping me alive. The debilitation of my body has drastically increased after the fall I took in September, 2014. I simply don’t have the strength to keep myself up right even with a walker. After this fall my body has changed tremendously and I now have other complications going on that further hinder my life. So far I can only walk a few steps. I have become more dependent than ever on my caregivers. Remember every donation counts no matter what the size and it is received with appreciation. Many blessings, Billie
An update on my cat Tigre. She came home yesterday and the doctor was able to get her liver levels stabilized. It was touch and go for a while. She is weak, but happy to be back home. I’m glad she’s back too, she’s a constant troublemaker, but I love her dearly. I want to say thanks to those of you who did give a donation. You helped out more than you know. All donations are received with deep gratitude. Many blessings, Billie
Need your help. My cat, Tigre, had to go into the hospital two days ago because of complications with inflammatory bowel disease. She’s on IV’s to balance out her liver levels. Right now they are so bad the gastro intestinal specialist has told me that she may not make it. I have enclosed a picture of her taken in the hospital and you can see the IV line in her body. This is the second time she has been hospitalized over this in the past three years. I would appreciate if you could help with a donation so that I can keep her hospitalized until she is stable. She will need specialized medicine and food afterwards. She is my daughter and I love her dearly. All donations are appreciated. Please continue to share this link everywhere that you can as I am having a difficult time surviving. Thank you. Many blessings, Billie
At this time I have a multitude of repairs that are urgently needed and I cannot pay for. I realize that I’m only one elderly person and that does not amount to much in the scheme of things, but I struggle to hang onto my life.
• My computer is crashing and it needs to be repaired.
• My ceiling fan stopped working and with the humidity and being bedridden I need the circulation of air.
• My washing machine is barely working and needs repair to keep going.
• I am late on paying my rent and close to being homeless.
I have no money to purchase over the counter items that are needed to:
• Ben Gay
• Liquid body soap
• Body lotion
• Facial Cleanser
• And more
If you can donate $5.00, which is less than a cup of coffee, it would help and add up if enough people could donate $5.00. Please share this link and make a comment to as many people as possible. Thank you from the bottom on my heart, Billie
My Gratitude to all that made a donation as an expression of Gratitude to Helping “Me Not be Homeless.” Connecting at a heart level and sending Compassion is the greatest expression of the Law of Love. When we help another, we Heal ourselves. Thank you for participating in my campaign. Your helping me is helping to relight the candle of Hope in the hearts of those who feel that no one cares. Love, Billie
Tonight's the night to begin anew,
and look at all that you want to do,
Get ready for an amazing path this year,
and make sure you walk it with no fear,
for you are loved and supported more than you know,
keep faith and let the love in your heart grow,
To 2014 we must now say goodbye,
Let 2015 be the year that you realize you can fly.
Happy New Year!!!
It has been one year since I started this campaign and thanks to those of you that have generously donated I still have a roof over my head. Without the donations I have received here there’s no way I could have made it this far. It’s extremely difficult to be in a destitute situation and bedridden. If I had my health I would work any type of job to provide a living. The money that is being donated does go for my caregivers, rent, electric, and gas. I am not giving out any Christmas presents this year as I have no spare money. There are so many people that I am indebted to for their help and I wish I could do something for them. I am glad that my spiritual messages help so many. Thank you from the bottom on my heart for your generosity throughout this past year. Wishing you a wonderful Christmas. Many blessings, Billie
There is no duty more important than expressing your gratitude to those who through their gestures have changed your life and touched your heart. I sincerely thank each and every one of you, who through your charitable donations have made it possible for me to meet some of my own personal financial health obligations. Perhaps, more importantly, you have allowed me to reach out to help those who are in more desperate need than me for the gesture of a helping hand in their greatest time of need.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy said: “One person can make a difference, and everyone should try.” I reach out to you during this season of love and gratitude for our family, our friends, our lives and all that God has bestowed upon us; humbly beseeching your heartfelt charity and generosity through any monetary donation you are able to offer. With a heavy heart, I again seek your selfless and philanthropic donation, as I find myself in an abysmal situation where I cannot afford the cost of my need for ongoing caregivers, while continuing to offer assistance to those who are in even more dire circumstances than my own.
Although we live our life with what we make, our happiness and self-worth in life is ultimately truly measured by what we share and give to others.
I thank you in advance for your thoughtfulness, generosity and support in my time of need. I wish you and yours the healthiest and happiest of the holiday season!
I appreciate those of you that have donated so much. There are never enough words to express my gratitude. I’m going through a difficult time as I’m being targeted by the caregiver I had to let go that was stealing. It was obvious she hung out with gangs because of her drug usage. There’s no question that the vandalism occurring outside of my apartment is being done on purpose. I cannot call the police because it happens in the middle of the night and I don’t video surveillance. I have lived in this apartment ten years and never have I had so much happen every day. They’re trying to destroy my air conditioner compressor, steal my propane tanks and my water pump. Frequently they’re cutting the chains and the locks on the wrought iron cages that I have surrounding these. I have to keep buying these things and any donation would be greatly appreciated. Many blessings, Billie
I believe that telling my story of how I live is a source of inspiration for others that are struggling with being bedridden, having a chronic illness, and feeling alone. Without your help I cannot make it. Please watch my video, donate, and share this link. Many blessings, Billie http://www.gofundme.com/Help-Paying-Caregivers
If I have touched your life in a positive way I would appreciate if you could donate to support my spiritual work. It does take time, money, and energy to do all that I do on a daily basis. It does cost for electricity, Internet service, computer maintenance, and website for me to help others. No donation is too small. Many blessings, Billie
Bless those of you that donated for the repairs and So that I could pay Rene! This picture and message goes out to anyone who suffers from chronic debilitating pain such as myself. There are so many things that I want to do and I have to stop myself because it’s going to push me over the limit. I would like to see everyone have a wonderful holiday with minimal pain! I truly wish there was a way to heal the world from all suffering. Many blessings, Billie
I want to thank those of you who have donated recently. As you know I had to have 24 hour a day caregivers after my accident. The nighttime caregiver ended up being a thief and I had to let her go over a month ago, even though I still could not walk. I’ve been having problems with my toilet ever since she was here and today my dear friend Rene found the problem. She had put washcloths down the toilet and clogged it completely. It takes a real friend to go in and do that messy job he did today to help me out. If you can donate to pay for the materials and for me to be able to pay Rene for the work he did,it would be greatly appreciated. Many blessings, Billie
Let our lives be full of thanks and giving. Without You I Would Not Be Here Today. Bless each one of you who have donated from your heart over this past year. I am struggling to find my way out of the black money hole, but grateful for your continued donations. Until you have been completely down on your luck it’s difficult to understand the desperate situation I am faced with, as I cannot take care of myself and have to pay people to do that. I’m grateful that some of you understand it. Never take anything for granted. Many blessings, Billie
I want to thank those of you who have followed me over the past year and donated to keep me here. It has been a year of great turmoil for many of you and myself included. Here is a video that I have made to express my gratitude for all that has happened good and bad this past year. Many blessings, Cherokee Billie
Thanks to the donation I received yesterday I’m able to buy food next week. I’ve used up the allotted money I had and I cannot use food pantries as I’m allergic to any chemicals. I have really hit rock bottom and if you can donate any amount it would be received with great gratitude. Thank you for considering me. Many blessings, Billie
The cost of being taken care of is never ending. I’m having a difficult time recovering from my accident as it goes from one problem to the next. I have been able to walk a bit with my walker, but now it causes rib cage pain pushing the walker. The frustration is enormous. Any amount donated would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Billie
My messages have reached hundreds of thousands over the years and because I have touched so many lives I have been shown great kindness and generosity over the past year. I spend countless hours every day on the computer working to generate business, but alas it seems to be of no avail. The cost of being taken care of will continue as long as I live. It costs less to be taken care of in my apartment then it would in a care facility. I ask for your help. If I have helped you in any way please find it in your heart to donate, No Amount Is Too Small. Thank you. Many blessings, Cherokee Billie
I want to thank those of you who have heard my plea and donated over the past week. You are definitely earth angels and I’m grateful that you are there. Health update: I’m not recovering well from the accident two months ago. Because of my muscles being so debilitated, when one group of muscles starts working better, it throws off another group. I cannot seem to get back to where I was before. I would be extremely grateful to be back and not be in so much horrific pain every day. Please continue to donate when possible and share the link to this page to all of your friends. Many blessings, Billie http://www.gofundme.com/Help-Paying-Caregivers
My dear friend Jay Brown, who wrote a personal testimony on this page earlier this year, sent me this picture a little while ago that was taken when I was 30 years old. Less than four years later I was diagnosed with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. He said to be sure and show the people what I looked like before all of these diseases took me down. He did not know how to post it here on this donation page. I was not always a bedridden invalid. I appreciate those of you who have stepped up today and donated as it is needed. Many blessings, Billie
I want to thank everyone who has donated to me. If you can donate any amount I will send you a download copy of my book, “Heavenly Seduction.” I want to do something in return for the donations that I receive. Please continue to share this link as the need for me to be taking care of is continual. If you’ve ever had to pay for an elderly loved one to be taken care of you understand that it is an ongoing overhead. Thank you and many blessings, Billie http://www.gofundme.com/Help-Paying-Caregivers

I wanted to take a moment to express my deepest gratitude to those of you who some how found a way to send me financial assistance throughout the past week. I thank God for putting YOU in my life at a time of great need.
When I speak to you about mindset, you know that in order to be a wonderful spiritual leader, I must not just talk the talk, but walk the walk. Your generosity and outpouring of emotional and financial support bolstered me at a very low moment in my life. If you can give so much and ask for nothing in return, I too must push myself past this time. Your support has bolstered me to do just that by attempting more physical tasks on my own. So, what could have been complete chaos for me, with your help, has only served to strengthen my spiritual connections and teachings to heights I did not know were even possible.
Please continue to keep me in your thoughts and prayers over the next several weeks until I can find replacement care for the evenings. If you, or you know anybody who could either donate and/or pay for my services, I would be eternally grateful. Every amount, no matter how small, helps a lot until things fall beck into place in my life.
I truly cannot believe the things that happen to me. My main caregiver who has been with me for three years ended up in the hospital Sunday night with severe anemia. As you know I have had to have 24 hour a day care. The woman who was working nights came in loaded on alcohol and cocaine Sunday night. My best friend Rene came and got her out of here and I was left alone as he could not stay. We had to have her come back this week because she knows the basic job and my other caregiver was in the hospital until Thursday. We let this woman go on Wednesday because we found somebody else to help out for the day. Well, she ended up stealing everything possible. She stole all of the food out of my freezer and refrigerator, my blender, my toaster, and Rene’s Drill which he had here to install more safety rails so I can try and walk. Now I am forced to be alone at night and I’m so extremely debilitated I do not know how I’m going to make it over the weekend being alone at night. If you can possibly donate anything it would be greatly appreciated as I have suffered a severe financial loss due to theft. My life is crazier than any novel. Thank you, Billie
The outpouring of love from people that know me from Facebook has been enormous. For the past six years I have been running a spiritual community page and it has been a labor of love as well as trying to promote my services. Obviously I have touched on things that move people and I am grateful for that. Without the donations I have received this past month I would not be able to continue. My health is spiraling downward every day, but it is a blessing to know that people truly care. So many people want to say that the hearts of people have gone cold, but I believe that there is a lot of kindness in this world and all of you have proven it. Please share the link to my donation page on your facebook page and through e-mail, as the need is continual. Sending all of you love and light, Billie http://www.gofundme.com/Help-Paying-Caregivers
The 24 hour caregiver cost and all the modifications that had to be done for me to survive has absolutely wiped out everything that I have received in donations and what I have made. At this time my situation is desperate. I have tapped out every resource available and I urgently need donations. If anybody can get my story out to the media and help me get massive exposure I would be grateful. If you can please donate and share this everywhere possible. Thank you, Billie
A big Thank You to everyone who has donated recently. Considering I’ve had two falls in the past nine months I’m doing pretty well. I am walking about 10ft. twice daily with assistance. That is nowhere near what I was walking prior to September 2. I am grateful to be able to do this as I did not know if I would ever walk again. I still have to have 24 hour a day care because I cannot do what I did previously and I need physical therapy several times a day, which I am receiving. The need for 24 hour care does continue until I can get back to semi normal. Please donate or share this page everywhere that you can as the cost for in home caregiving is expensive. Anyone who’s had to pay for caregiving or had a loved one that had to be taking care of knows that it is a huge overhead. I depend upon your help. Once again thank you, Billie http://www.gofundme.com/Help-Paying-Caregivers
Gratitude is stored in the heart and not in the mind. Each one of you that donated has a special Place in my heart. After being bedridden for decades it’s going to take many months to recover after my latest fall. I am still not able to walk and that is my main concern. I have physical therapy three times a week and that is helping the pain and inflammation to go down. I still have to have 24 hour care compared to normal daytime help. Please continue to share this link everywhere possible. If anybody has connections to get this story out to the media please let me know. Many blessings, Billie http://www.gofundme.com/Help-Paying-Caregivers
Those of you who continue to donate touch my heart with your love. It’s a slow and I mean painfully slow recovery from the accident I had September 2. I’m still not able to walk and have to have 24 hour a day care. With your donations I am able to pay to be taking care of. My wings may be tethered, but I still know how to fly. Bless each one of you. With love, Billie
Once again I want to thank those of you that have generously donated. After the latest accident I am in far worse condition then the accident in December. That accident made me weaker than I already was announces one on top of that is just overwhelming to me. I could not believe it was happening, but it did. I ask if you can please to continue Tell me pay for caregivers. Thank you. Many blessings, Billie
My health has taken a new turn-Tuesday Sept. 02 at 6:30 AM my cat ran in front of me as I was going to the bathroom and knocked me down. I had to crawl to my telephone to call my best friend to get me off the floor. The fall damaged both of my feet, the tendons are pulled, and my rib muscles are pulled from having to crawl using my hands and arms. I have to have 24 hour a day care NOW. I need emergency donations to pay for 24 hour day caregivers. I am greatly concerned that I will never walk again because this time it’s both feet, not like my accident last December where I only damaged one foot.
I appreciate the prayers and I ask if you could please SHARE THIS LINK ON YOUR PAGE as I desperately need donations. I understand that many of you are struggling as well. By sharing this you never know who might be able to help. So that’s my life for now. Many blessings, Cherokee Billie http://www.gofundme.com/Help-Paying-Caregivers
A great big thank you to everyone who donated this past week. Social media can be used for the good and it is clearly demonstrated here on my donation page. My need to pay for caregivers is ongoing as long as I live. I am grateful that the work that I have done over the years is appreciated and that appreciation is demonstrated by the love of sharing this page and donations. Many blessings, Billie
I'm grateful for those who came and left footprints on my heart. Each one of you that has donated has made an impression on my heart that will never leave. All I can say is Thank You! Many blessings, Billie
I understand that it gets tedious to hear me ask for donations, but my need is real and I really do need immediate help. Please donate whatever you can and share this link throughout the Internet. I am extremely grateful for the donations I have received over the past nine months. Thank you. Bless you, Billie http://www.gofundme.com/Help-Paying-Caregivers
I want to thank those of you that have donated and those of you that have shared the link to this page throughout the Internet. I’m reaching a level where it’s getting almost impossible to walk. This is the most frightening aspect of what I deal with daily. As long as I can walk a bit just to the bathroom and back I feel semi independent. If I lose the ability to walk I have no way to pay for full time caregivers. It’s enough to have to pay for daily caregivers, but 24 hours a day caregivers is an enormous cost. It’s cheaper to take care of myself at home then to go into a nursing facility. Knowing myself as well as I do, I would not last one week in a nursing facility. As I stated in my last post everything I own is breaking down because it’s old. Even my bed has indentations of my body and it causes more pain because I am lying in holes. Once again I ask if you can to please donate and share this line where were you can. Thank you and God bless you, Billie http://www.gofundme.com/Help-Paying-Caregivers
I have just created a new video on my life as a bedridden person. I would appreciate your taking a few moments to watch the video on my life. I dislike that I have to keep asking for donations, but I am not receiving any business, no matter how hard I work on the Internet. Having physical disabilities/limitations and never knowing if I will have money to pay for food, rent, caregivers, or anything else that I might need leaves me severely depressed. My computer is slowly going as it’s over eight years old and I desperately need a new computer, so I can continue my spiritual work. My washing machine is also old and barely functioning. Everything I own is old and becoming unfixable – Gosh It Sounds Like Me! I do my best to be uplifting to people every day. What I go through daily I would not wish on anyone. I appreciate your donation and sharing this link to everyone that you can. Many blessings, Billie http://www.gofundme.com/Help-Paying-Caregivers
The response to my latest post has left me humbled by the love people have shown in donations and sharing the link to this page. This is an ongoing situation and I want to shout out praises to every one of you. Many of you have known me for years and thoroughly understand my situation. Remember the dollar amount you see donated to me has been over the past nine months. No Donation Is Too Small! If you are unable to make a donation please share this page on Facebook, email, or anywhere else that you can. I thank you in advance for your help. Many blessings, Billie http://www.gofundme.com/Help-Paying-Caregivers
Whenever I look at photographs it amazes me at how frail and skinny I am. My dresses are large because I can’t stand anything touching my body. With your help I could remain in my apartment and be taken care of and not homeless. Remember the dollar amount you see donated to me has been over the past nine months. This has not been received in one day. No Donation Is Too Small! If you are unable to make a donation please share this page on Facebook, email, or anywhere else that you can. I thank you in advance for your help. Many blessings, Billie http://www.gofundme.com/Help-Paying-Caregivers
Thank you to everyone who has donated recently. I realize many people are going through difficulties financially and I’m grateful that you felt compelled to help. I did not get enough to pay my electricity bill, so I’m still hoping for further donations. Please share this link everywhere that you can as you never know who may help. Thank you. Many blessings, Billie http://www.gofundme.com/Help-Paying-Caregivers
This is an SOS! I cannot afford to pay my Electric bill and I have to have air conditioning or I cannot exist in this heat. I need your help. Any size donation would be a blessing. It does not have to be large, because small donations add up. I Truly wish my business would come back so I did not have to ask for help. I thank you in advance. Many blessings, Billie
The needs for someone who is bed bound is many and without your love and support I would not have a roof over my head. Your donations not only provide caregiver support, but also support for living expenses, physical therapy, and other incidentals along the way.
So far there has been an outpouring of generosity from friends and those that I do not even know. This donation page is here to continue a celebration of that love, support, and help bring peace of mind to me during this long unfortunately endless journey through being crippled, chronic illness, bedridden, and dependent upon others for my daily needs. With love, Billie
Thank you to everyone who has donated over the past week. There are many homeless elderly people in America and I’m fighting hard not to be one of them. People talk about government benefits, if the government gave out so much there would not be any homeless people! No one talks about the elderly-we are the forgotten people. Yes, I get disability, but it does not cover the cost of living and paying for caregivers. I am asking to please help out with whatever you can as the money that I had donated to me last week was spent for electricity, food, water, just basic things. I have to use the air conditioner because I cannot tolerate the heat; therefore my electric bill is sky high. Please share this donation page with as many people as possible. Thank you. Many blessings, Billie http://www.gofundme.com/Help-Paying-Caregivers
The outpouring of love from people that know me from Facebook has been enormous. For the past six years I have been running a community page and it has been a labor of love. I have no idea how many people really like what I’m doing, but obviously I have touched on things that move people and I am grateful for that. Without the donations I have received this week I would not be able to continue. My health is spiraling downward every day, but it is a blessing to know that people truly care. So many people want to say that the hearts of people have gone cold, but I believe that there is a lot of kindness in this world and all of you have proven it. Please share the link to my donation page on your facebook page and through e-mail, as the need is continual. Sending all of you love and light, Billie
I am grateful for the donations I have received in the past week. The total dollar amount that you see that I have received is over the last eight months. I have pleurisy in my lungs and it’s difficult to breathe at this time. It’s been impossible to do any type of work. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Billie
Just a quick reminder the total that you see that I have received is over the last eight months. If there was this month I would be totally elated. I’m grateful for any size donation. I just want people to understand that this has been a slow process and that I have not received all this money recently. Remember any size donation is a blessing. Many blessings, Billie
Once again a big thank you to everyone who donated last week. I am trying feverishly to get clients by writing and keeping my name out all over the Internet. Being bedridden has not stopped me from working-Only lack of business. My vacuum cleaner has died and has to be repaired. Due to my delicate health I have to have the carpeting cleaned daily. It’s the first of the month and after paying my rent and utilities I am back to zero balance. I have to start paying back to my caregivers who have donated their time. I want to show appreciation to my donators by sending a downloaded version of my memoir, “Heavenly Seduction” this way I feel I’m giving back to those who have generously given. If you can only donate $5.00 it would be a blessing at this point. It is definitely a humbling experience to have to keep asking for donations. Many blessings, Billie
This week I have received answers on some of my other electronics and I need further repairs. Not as major as the television, but each one of them is important in my life. I do constantly need help on paying caregivers, but even my caregivers have been generous with their time and helping me by not charging as much as normal or holding off for me to pay them at a later date. Sooner or later the day comes due. I realize that it’s a difficult time for everyone with money and I ask for any amount that you can donate. If everyone donated $5.00 it would certainly add up. The degradation that I feel each time I have to ask for donations are beyond words. I always feel like a beggar on the street corner. I would prefer that my phone be ringing with clients, as I would prefer working. Work is healing for my mind and soul. I thank all of you that are supportive financially and emotionally. Sending all of you love and light, Billie
I have been truly blessed by the donations made this past week. The kindness in people’s hearts is truly moving. I thanked everybody privately; I want to thank you publicly as well. Most of my electronics have been repaired. I’m waiting for some more answers this week on the electronics. Some people ask me why I cannot get help from the government, organizations or churches. What they offer is extremely limited and if they were able to help everyone in need there would be no homeless people or poverty. This is why I have to reach out publicly. I have been working being bedridden for many decades, but unfortunately my business is going under. I would rather be working and making a living instead of having to turn to the generosity of kindhearted people. May you be rewarded for your generosity. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Billie
This has been a devastating week for me as a power surge went through my apartment and blew up practically all of my electronics. I want to give a special thanks to Lucy and Sharon for their generous donations to help me get my television and computer repaired. I want to thank Susan for posting on my Facebook Fan Page so that I continue being inspirational to others as well as trying desperately to market my services as a spiritual advisor, which is not getting any business. My arms are not working correctly at this time and it’s very difficult for me to be on the computer at all, but I do it even when the pain is so bad that I’m crying. I still need donations because I’m one step from being homeless and would appreciate any that I can receive. Please donate whatever you can and share this page with as many as possible. Thank you. Many blessings, Billie http://www.gofundme.com/Help-Paying-Caregivers
My heart is filled with gratitude for those who have generously donated over the past two weeks. You have no idea how much you are helping me stay alive. As long as I live I have to pay people to take care of me because I am unable physically to take care of myself. I’m able to help people spiritually, but when it comes to physical I am crippled and bedridden. Some think that I have received a lot of money quickly, but everything that I’ve received here has been over the past seven months. Obviously I have been of help for people to give from their pocketbook and heart. I ask that you please share this donation page with others. God bless each one of you, Billie
Thank you to everyone who has donated over the past two weeks. As long as I live I will have to pay to be taken care of. That is an enormous cost and anyone who has had to pay for a loved one to be taken care of knows what I’m talking about. They have to give me a bath, shampoo my hair, feed me, cook, clean, shop, run any errands and basically do everything a mother does. I continue putting out messages throughout the Internet seeking clients, but I am not getting any business. Therefore I am dependent upon you helping me with donations and Sharing The Link To This Page on Facebook as well as sending out e-mails with this link. Please do what you can to help me as my situation is always a desperate one. Many blessings, Billie http://www.gofundme.com/Help-Paying-Caregivers
I want to thank everybody who donated over the past two days. Thankfully I was able to buy the food that I need for this week. I am glad that I have touched so many of you with my inspirational work. I continue doing it every day even though I’m getting no clients. If I was getting clients I would not have to reach out and beg for donations. Believe me this is humiliating. I have been called a scam artist and so many horrible things just trying to survive. If I could get out of bed I would do any type of labor to make money. Unfortunately I am bedridden and that is not going to change. Those of you that know me know that I have never taken advantage of anyone. It’s just not in me. I’m hanging on by a thread financially and physically. I had a major setback in my health yesterday. I’m doing the best that I can to continue to uplift people’s spirits. Thank you for being there for me. Sending all of you love and light, Billie
Urgent Message. I have absolutely no money for groceries. I will not receive any money until next month. If you can donate any amount I would be extremely grateful. I know I can go without food for short time, but as weak as I am not eating would land me in the hospital. And I certainly cannot cover the co pay on a hospital. I appreciate everyone who has donated in the past. Thank you. Many blessings, Billie
I want to thank all of you that have made donations this past week. It has been six months since my accident and my posting this donation page. Many people mistakenly think that I have made all of this money recently and do not realize that it has taken six months to achieve this amount. I really do need your help so please share this page as much as you can and if you are able to donate it would be a blessing for me. I struggle every day to survive and to pay the cost of being bedridden without family help. Many blessings, Billie
Once again I am touched profoundly by those of you who have donated. I know that everyone is facing challenges in this economy and I'm glad that my spiritual work over the years has helped so many. My Birthday is on May 26 and you can make it the best birthday for me ever with your continued donations and sharing this page everywhere you can. With Deep Gratitude, Billie
Thank you to everyone who has donated over the past week. I know this is a sacrifice and I am grateful to each one of you. Please share this donation page anywhere you can as I really need help financially. My business has slowed down to nothing and I'm at the point of not having enough money to buy food throughout the rest of the month. The caregiver situation is permanent and I have to pay them because I cannot take care of myself at all. So once again I'm asking for you to put the word out about my situation. Any donation no matter how small is greatly appreciated. Many blessings, Billie
Many of you have expressed how much you appreciate my daily spiritual messages, which is my gift to the world. If I have been of value in any way to you, please consider a donation so that I can continue to be taken care of by caregivers. Remember the amount is not what is important, but the acknowledgement that my work is of value is of great importance to me. Many blessings, Cherokee Billie
I want to send a big thank you to everyone who has donated recently. I have updated my profile stating that I need help paying for caregivers. As long as I live I will have to be taken care of and anyone who has had to pay for in home care giving knows how expensive it can be. I am grateful that because of the loving donations I have received it is helping me to live as comfortably as possible in my apartment. I am able to walk a bit better than I was a few weeks ago and much better then December 2013 after the accident. I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful it is to be able to walk with the assistance of my walker to the bathroom and back. That's a major thing for me. So here is a big cyber hug to all of you that have helped and continue to share my donation page and contribute. Many blessings, Billie
I want to say thank you to those who have recently donated. You will never know how truly grateful I am. I have sent thank you letters to everyone who has donated and if you would like please write and let me know about you. So many that have donated to me I don't even know. All I can say is you are helping a very sick woman maintain a bit of quality to her life. Many blessings, Billie
Thanks to the donations I have received over the past two and a half months I have been able to pay for extra caregivers and for necessary modifications in my apartment that help me get around my bedroom and bathroom. I have to have bars attached to the walls because my walker cannot fit every place that I need to move. I appreciate each one of you who have donated and please share this donation page on Facebook and anywhere else you can. God bless you! Billie
I appreciate those who have donated recently. It's been close to three months since I fell and last night I was walking with my walker and my foot got caught on the floor fan and I almost fell again. Thanks to the walker I did not. It did shake me up because I was alone. The donations that I have received have gone to pay for extra nighttime caregivers and medical supplies because I've had to reorganize my room and lifestyle because of barely walking. The necessity of caregivers in my life is not going to end until my life ends. Please share this donation page as much as you can. Wishing you a wonderful week, Billie
I have received many private messages with people offering suggestions. I appreciate your trying to help, but I will try to explain for those who have never had to face taking care of an elderly parent or themselves what services are available and what they do. Hospice care is good for pain management and coping with dying, but they don't take care of you. They help your caregiver or family to assist you through the process. Hospice workers do not give you a bath, shampoo your hair, cook for you, clean, go shopping, take care of your pets, and run errands. I have to pay people to be here daily to take care of me and that will not stop no matter what other assistance I get. So please keep posting my donation page wherever you can, so that I can have quality of life until I go. Please remember no donation is too small. Thank you. Many blessings, Billie
"I'm much too young to be this old." That's exactly what I thought when I saw this picture my caregiver took of me the other day. Two years ago I could no longer stand up straight because I have lost all muscle strength in my back. I use a back support, but I cannot take the stiff back supports because they cause neural muscular pain. My clothing is extra large because I cannot even tolerate my clothing touching me. Anyone who has invisible illnesses knows what I'm talking about. I have listed some of my illnesses in my initial introduction. I have been living this way for so long and having to be taken care of is not easy or cheap. Now I have a parasite infection in my intestines and I am really going through a rough time. I do not want to eat and have less energy than ever. I'm taking medication, but it takes a good week before you feel different with this type of infection. I thank all of you who have made recent donations. Please continue to share this donation page to as many places as you can. Bless of all of you that help. With gratitude, Billie
I have been slowly gaining back some of my mobility. Sunday was the first day that I did not have help in the evening. My caregiver left at noon and I was on my own. I thought I did quite well heating up my food, getting it to my bed, and going to the bathroom. Unfortunately it was way too much and Monday I could barely walk on the foot that was injured. So it is a slight set back and that's always hard because I want to be back to where I was before this injury. Those that suffer from hidden illnesses understand what I am saying. I appreciate the support that so many of you have given me. Please keep sharing my page to others. Many blessings, Billie
I greatly appreciate those who have donated recently. It's difficult to keep posting that I need help, but it is the truth. Anyone who has paid for in home care knows that I am not exaggerating about it being costly. My situation will not change and I am fighting for survival. My life may not be the greatest, but I cherish it. Thank you for thinking of me.
The outpouring of love through donations has moved me to tears. I know that many of you do not know me and have never heard of me before and yet something I have said touched your soul in such a way that you felt compelled to help me. I am truly honored! I believe that sharing my story can help others that are going through similar situations and feel like there is no one there for them. I have always believed in the kindness of strangers, no matter what I have faced. A lady I worked with several years ago told me I was crazy to believe that people had kindness in their heart and I told her I will never stop believing that there is kindness in this world. Each one of you here has proven that statement that I made to be true. I send out love and ask that blessings be poured out on all of you that have donated and shared my page with others. Many blessings, Cherokee Billie
So many of you are definitely Human Angels who have true compassion and understanding in your hearts. I am deeply touched by the donations I have received this week. It is helping me get through this rough time in my life. Each donation is a blessing that I feel will return back to the person that donated. It is so inspiring to me to read the testimonies that people have shared here about knowing me over the years and how I have helped them. Perhaps the accident occurred so I would see for myself how much I have touched people's lives. Prior to the accident I was feeling like all of my work over the years had been for nothing. Now I am fortunate enough to see the fruits of my labor. Bless all of you who have donated and shared this page with others. I appreciate each one of you. I send up prayers for all of you. Many blessings, Billie
Current update: A friend did a split screen picture of me fifteen years ago and how I look today. It is difficult for me to look at how much I have changed over the years because of the decline in my health. I realize that this is a difficult time after the holidays for people to donate, but I have to have round the clock care because of absolutely no strength. If it's possible that you can donate a small amount it would be a blessing because being taken care of is consuming all of my money. Thank you and please share this with this many people as you can. Many blessings, Billie
I understand how everybody is basically burnt out following the holidays and I have not expected to see donations coming in this past week. I am still struggling to walk and because of the inactivity all of my nerves and muscles have been affected and I'm having trouble functioning more and more. I keep pushing myself on walking as much as possible with assistance, but it is a difficult journey each step that I take. I still cannot get to the bathroom without assistance and even then I'm so weak I cannot often make it. I long to be back to where I was before this accident and able to go to the bathroom and be independent at least at night time. I still have to have assistance at night or I would be in serious trouble. If you can donate it would be greatly appreciated. If you could share this page on your facebook page or share it with friends I would be thankful. Billie
A brief update for those of you that are following my donation page. I realize with Christmas everyone is caught up in the activities and now New Year's is about to happen and people are tired and busy. Right now I have reached seventeen percent of my goal. I would appreciate if you would please share this page with everyone you know. I still need help full time. Starting to move more, but I have atrophy even further and it's causing great pain to move about a bit. Believe me I wish I could move as much as I did three weeks ago. This has been a major setback in my health. Thank you to everyone who has donated and those who will. Many blessings, Billie
I am extremely grateful to everyone who has donated. I realize that with the holidays it's not easy to have extra money for donations. I completely understand. This past year I have seen my spiritual advising business go down to nothing. If it was still profitable there be no reason for me to ask for donations. Even though I've been bedridden all these years I have continued to work, but over the past year my health has plummeted downward, as well as my business. There is such a change occurring in our world and so many people are going without. I pray every day for those that I do not know to be blessed with all of their needs and to have abundance in their life. No matter what I'm going through I continue to pray for others. Many times I weep at all of the suffering worldwide. Please continue to share this page with as many as you can. Bless all of you who read this now and in the future. Many blessings, Billie
Today marks two weeks since I had my accident. All of you that have donated or shared this page have made it possible for me to pay for 24 hour care this past week. During Christmas and the New Year holiday it's not so easy to find people that will work; because of your help with donations I'm able to pay for the desperately needed caregivers. I am starting to be able to use my damaged tendon a bit. I get therapy every day on it with the help of the caregivers. I cannot believe how debilitated I have become in just two weeks of not being able to move as much as I normally did, which was limited before the accident. You have made this a blessed Christmas for me. Please continue to share this page with everyone you can as it takes word of mouth for this message to get out. Thank you so much. You will never know how much you have touched the heart of an old woman who felt forgotten. Many blessings, Cherokee Billie
Thank you for all the kind messages and donations I have received this Christmas day. I really did not expect to see activity and donations because of this being such a busy day for families. It is really moving that so many care about me and have reached into their pockets to help. It does not matter to me the size of the donation, what matters is the love that it is sent with. Helping a person out in need is cultivating love and I know that that will return to you many times over. I pray that you carry the spirit of Christmas within your heart always. Many blessings, Cherokee Billie
I know that I am incredibly blessed by all of the beautiful messages I am receiving from so many here and the donations. You have made this Christmas the best that I have had in years, not only because of the money, but because of the outpouring of love and knowing that I have made a difference in your life. Please continue to share this link with as many people as you can for me to reach my goal. Fill your heart with love today, and send that love forward to all that surround you, embrace the spirit of the season, let the magic of today show you the reason, for it matters not what religion you are, but that you live life with love and light in your heart. All of you have shown me the love that is in your heart. May you be blessed with love, peace, and abundance. Many blessings, Cherokee Billie
So many have been generous and opening up their hearts to donate to me whatever they can. I know how difficult it is right now for everyone at Christmas time. That's why the donations I receive have really and truly touched my heart. I cry when I read the beautiful messages people are writing. It's so nice to know that I have helped people on their path. Thank you so much and please share this link as many places as possible, because without word of mouth it will reach a limited amount of people. Kindness Never Becomes Obsolete. One of the main messages I always try to get out is practice kindness daily. The thing I see most lacking in the world is kindness. Bless all of you who have donated and those that are reading this message. Many blessings, Cherokee Billie
I am so grateful for all of the donations I am receiving. It is because of people like you that beauty is added to my world! You have shown you love me without limits, and are here for me in my hour of need. I am deeply blessed. Wishing you and your family the best Christmas ever. Many blessings, Cherokee Billie
My heart is filled with gratitude this morning as I saw some more donations come in during the night. I send a special shout out to my followers at my Facebook Fan page, who have followed me for years. Your donations, prayers, and wonderful wishes warms my soul. May the peace of Christmas fall softly in your world and stay in your heart forever. Many blessings, Cherokee Billie
I am truly grateful for the outpouring of support and donations from so many people. Showing gratitude is one of the simplest yet most powerful things humans can do for each other. And I want to tell you I am grateful for each one of you. Thank you so much! You are making a difference in my life. I'm able to pay the caregivers for this past week and purchase the extra medical supplies that are needed. Thank you to all of you that are standing by me at this time. Many blessings, Cherokee Billie
The donations I have received today have come from people I do not know, but have followed my Spiritual page for years and it's heartwarming to know that what I have done all these years is appreciated. Please continue to share this link to as many places as you possibly can such as Facebook, Twitter, churches and other organizations. Many blessings, Cherokee Billie
I want to thank everyone who has donated today. May the blessings of Christmas overflow in the love that you share. You are showing what the spirit of Christmas is really about. Thank you! Many blessings, Billie
The generosity that is being shown to me moves me to tears. I know that many people are struggling financially and the small donations touch my heart deeply. Bless everyone who is reaching into their pockets to donate. I do know that the more we recognize the blessings we have by showing gratitude the more we'll have to be grateful for. I am grateful to each one of you. Love and light, Billie
The blessings continue with people donating. So many of you have known me for years and followed my spiritual ministry where I have worked diligently for so many years working to enlighten and uplift people. Over the past year I have wondered if what I was doing was of any value and from the response I'm getting of donations it seems that there has been value to my work. Bless all of you for your help. A very grateful Billie
I am deeply touched by those that have contributed today. I know that many of you plan on doing this later and I have appreciated your private messages. I know that I am only one person on this planet and that many others are suffering as well. I do my best every day to uplift people's spirits and help those that are suffering. Now I'm reaching out for help. Thank you for reading this and for those that are contributing bless you. With love, Billie
I have received some more donations and there are not enough words to express the gratitude that I feel for those who have reached in to their wallets and have donated what they can. Thank you from the bottom on my heart. Billie
I am so grateful to those who have responded so quickly to my plea for help. In just a few hours I have gotten enough to pay for one day of caregiving. This is a blessing beyond blessing for me. Thank you to everyone who reads this and those that are contributing. God bless you, Billie
I am quite amazed at getting donations so quickly. There are really some good people out there that care. I have helped many people over the years and now I'm asking for help in return. I appreciate each one of you. Bless all of you for your help. Billie
The PAST 16 MONTHS I have received Generous donations, for which I am extremely grateful. I am a 63 year old single woman with NO FAMILY who has been crippled/bedridden for 25 years due to an accident to my hips. I also have Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, Neural Muscular Degeneration, Fibromyalgia, Parkinson's disease and Crohn's Disease to name a few of my medical conditions. I have very little muscle strength, and I must rely on caregivers for even my most basic needs such as bathing, cooking, and general health care. All of my family is deceased. I have nowhere to turn, so I'm reaching out for help. Due to the rate of my deterioration, I don't have much time left. I want to have as much quality of life as possible before I pass.
16 months ago I fell when no one was here and I have not been able to walk on my own. My apartment is too small for me to use a wheelchair, plus I am not able to operate the controls. Thanks to the loving donations I have received over the past 14 months I have been able to pay for caregivers and physical therapy. I fell again in September, 2014. I simply don’t have the strength to keep myself up right even with a walker. After this fall my body has changed tremendously and so far I still am not able to walk. I have become more dependent than ever on my caregivers.
For 3 decades I have been a speaker, lecturer, teacher, and holistic practitioner who has helped many people over the years to heal and find their joy. Despite My physical limitations over the past years I have never stopped helping others.
With your help I can continue my daily spiritual work and I could remain in my apartment and be taken care by caregivers. I have been a strong independent woman all of my life and I want to remain independent as much as possible until my time to pass comes.
No donation is too small! If you are unable to make a donation please share this page on Facebook, email, or anywhere else that you can. I thank you in advance for your help.
