I am a 65 year old single woman with NO FAMILY who has been crippled/bedridden for 26 years due to an accident to my hips. I have Arteriosclerosis, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, Neural Muscular Degeneration, Fibromyalgia, Parkinson's disease, hypoglycemia, allergies, and Crohn's Disease to name a few of my medical conditions. I can no longer walk without a walker or wall bar. I have no balance.  Sometimes a walker is hard for me to use. I have little control of any of my muscles. My apartment is too small for me to use an electric wheelchair.

Please take a few moments and watch my video as you’ll than understand the progression of the diseases on my body and where I am today.

Because of the severity of my condition I must rely on caregivers for even my most basic needs such as bathing, cooking, errands, and general health care.  I have nowhere to turn, so I'm reaching out for help. My body is deteriorating rapidly and everyday I encounter a new health problem I have to deal with. Because of my frailty there’s only so much the doctors feel comfortable doing for me at this time.

For 3 decades I have been a speaker, lecturer, teacher, and holistic practitioner who has helped many people over the years to have clarity and find their joy. Despite My physical limitations over the past years I have never stopped helping others. No matter what I’m going through I do my best to help someone else. 

 Every day I post inspirational messages throughout the Internet that have inspired and helped many people.  I reach an estimated 20,000 people a day with my messages, so I know that I have some value while I’m here and I’m happy to help others.  So many people write me and tell me what a difference I have made in their life.  I have learned that being grateful no matter what my circumstances are makes a big difference in my life and in those that I touch. 

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 95 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 until my time to pass comes.

No donation is too small! I appreciate your love and prayers.

God bless you, 
Billie

Urgent Need. I’m not able to walk at this time and need 24 hour caregivers. I cannot afford to pay them without your help. Also my computer has a virus and needs to get to a technician immediately so everything can be wiped out and reinstalled clean. If there’s any possibility that you can donate I would appreciate it. Could you share my donation page with your friends. Sending love, Billie https://www.gofundme.com/6kn7r6b8

I want to take a moment to thank those of you who have expressed their prayers and well wishes for recovery from my near fatal accident since it occurred when I was alone.

I am forever grateful to those of you who have sent donations as even the smallest amount makes a huge difference. Your donations have made it possible to have evening and over-night care for at least two days.

Often a picture (or two) is worth a thousand words...As you can see and it is very depressing to admit, my quickly diminishing physical health and strength no longer affords me the strength to move from my bed. My arms give out do the best they can hold me up. Unfortunately my real problem is my left knee which no longer supports me and my right foot which has been damaged several times over the past four years from falling.

Here is a photograph showing the damage to my right foot and ankle. You can see the color change from the hematoma. You can also see the incredible swelling on the left leg at the knee and below which is causing me to collapse

I thank you for your emotional and financial support. Remember to please share my donation page wherever you can. God bless you, Billie

Accident and damage to my body. I was walking with my walker when my left knee started to collapse and I caught myself on the walker with my hands and my right foot to keep from falling on the floor. This did incredible damage to my right foot and I have hematoma accumulating in the right foot. I am always scared when I walk because of the muscle at the left knee wanting to collapse. This is not new. Right now walking is almost completely impossible because of the pain and the weakness in the muscles. I desperately need extra help at this time. Without donations I cannot afford any extra help. 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 want to give a great big THANK YOU to Kenneth for helping me get my air conditioner repaired. You have helped make this hot humidity bearable. For that I am grateful. I still need help paying for my cat Tigre’s medicine and any donation would be appreciated. Many blessings, Billie

I have known Billie for quite a few years now and I am her friend as she is mine!! I’m proud to say we are even more than friends I look at her as a big sister! We have talked and talked about how she has to live her life. It’s so hard to watch her go through her life daily, the pain the struggle... for food for medications and for health care. It’s so much that she can’t handle it anymore by her self. She is working as much as she can ... she isn't sitting on her butt looking for a hand out! She truly needs us now its time we pay it forward! If you could look deep into your pockets and find a little something to pay it forward no donation is to small... and all donations are so appreciated! Billie is a kind loving woman going through a rough life and needs all the love and support we can give... I thank you so much for donating and may God Bless you...

I've known Billie for many years and am proud to call her my friend. This lady has very real problems with her health and it is only with the help of donations that she is able to carry on. Life has dealt her some awful blows. Whereas the majority of us have family that we can rely to help if needed Billie has no-one. Everything has to be done for her by caregivers and these have to be paid for. Billie always continues with her uplifting posts although I don't think many realise how hard this is for her. She has advised me spiritually and her advice is always helpful. I find Billie to be a lovely, kind, truthful lady who really needs as much help as we can give her.

I have known and come to trust Billie over some years. Billie has proved herself consistently honest and truthful, as well as having many other qualities which she incorporates into her vocations. Billie has much to contend with, in terms of her health, and I believe her health problems to be exactly as she describes.

I'm not sure many of you really know Billie. She is a Spiritual Advisor, and she works hard everyday. You see her uplifting posts on Facebook, but do you know she has many helpful videos on You Tube? Billie has written a book, Heavenly Seduction. She does Spiritual phone readings, and more! Billie does all of these things while being crippled for over 25 years. This is the reason she needs caregivers.

I am so grateful that you got out of the other place. I was so unsafe for you. I'm so glad that you have the help to get you there! Billie is a strong lady in a crippled body... She is amazing at what she does, and can use all the help that she can. Hiring health care is such a hard job and not an easy one.... also to keep them it cost money! Moneys' that Billie does not always have that is why helping with donation is such a huge priority so she can continue to work and keep a roof over her head... She works hard at what she does and many I mean Many followers and clients and so called friends see this everyday and she is always here for a reading in a min notice.. We as a great bunch of followers, friends and clients really need to let all our friends about her!! She has a rough life with her disabilities and really need us ...... She wont make it without our help and donations... So Please reach deep and send a donation.... no donation is not too small. I pray that we can continue to give Billie a chance to continue life the only way she can! God Bless you all!

I'm so sorry to hear this..... I know that you are trying hard to survive and couldn't do it without your donations....... I want everyone to know that your condition is getting worse and that you need this help more now than ever ...... Cherokee Billie"s health issues are getting to the point that she is going to need around the clock care and without our ( ya know all those out there that read your inspirational post and leave wonderful messages....) really need to step up and give her a little help .. ya know if everyone who reads her post could donate just 5.00$ it would help so much, her caregivers expenses are overwhelming and then the cost of medicine is just taken away any extra that she had set aside for the months expenses, so now she has to rely on the donations.... Please Please could you reach deep into your pockets and hearts and give a donation.... I talk to Cherokee Billie as much as possible and as of this morning she is really in bad shape and needs great help, no donation is too small everything counts..... This is a real plea without our help I dont think she is going to make it through this time and I really love and need her in my life so pls pls give her a hand.. I know that there has been some scams going on with the "Go fund me" this is not one Cherokee Billie is in dire need of our help.... just 5.00$ (the cost of cigarettes are more than that) would do so much for her to get her through another month of living.... It must be hell living from day to day not knowing what disaster is coming your way, I pray hard for people to respond to the donation page so we can at least give you a piece of mind on a daily basis.... I ask God daily to guide and give you strength to continue your life as pain free as possible... like we talked reality this morning and I know your right God"s Angels may be coming soon and I want to see us all get together to prolong that as long as we can.... I love Cherokee Billie and it hurts to know how bad her condition is becoming and she cant even get a small donation from all that comment and share her work, She has put up her readings at discounted prices along with doing radio work from her bed.... She is trying so hard to survive I'm afraid she will just give up, it's a really sad situation when your future is looking so horrible that you just want to give up and die so your out of all your pain and issues... She is fighting so hard to stay alive and it hurts so bad knowing it... I wish I could swoop her up and bring her home with me to take care of her... and Im like most of the working world always short on money but like I said I give up my pack of smokes for her to have just 5.00 $ to send when I can. We are all Gods children and we need to act like it and help his children when we can,,,, so I'm going to start with the first 5.00 and see if some of you will follow me in hopes that we can give her a piece of mind,,,,, letting her know that she is worth something in the time she has left here on this Earth. God has a reason she is still here with us but it is so hard for her alone so I know he is wanting us to do right and give her a hand..... God does for those who do for others! AMEN

I've known Billie for many years and she's a very nice lady with a big heart, but though she has a big heart and does what she can to help others her medical bills are present up top of the living costs which include in home care. Billie is disabled and relies a great deal on her caregivers which cost a heavy amount. I know walking and running is taken for granted everyday but when you can't do it and count on others to help you, it's a big deal. If you can put yourself in her shoes and give any amount , yes even five dollars adds up, please do! You can even donate anonymous like I did.
