My name is Sharon Ann and I am a 23 year old that has to live with a rare form of Muscular Dystrophy, coupled with Scoleosis as it often is, I also have COPD, congenital heart disease, a tracheostomy, and a stomach tube.

In May I went into cardiac arrest and had to spend a month up in Chapel Hill, getting five surgeries including a tracheostomy and a stomach tube. I am in and out of the hospital often but our local hospital is extremely under funded and only makes me worse before I have to be transferred to Chapel Hill. I am seemingly constantly sick now. The hospital where I need be seen for emergencies and for appointments is about four hours away. I need to be able to get back and forth to see specialists at that hospital and another hospital hours away to try to see a Muscular Dystrophy doctor. We do not have anywhere near the money to make these trips that I need or for any medical supplies that I'll have to pay for out of pocket. We are having such a difficult time with all of this and need help. We are also so behind on bills, our back fence is broken, our kitchen sink is broken, we cannot afford groceries towards the end of the month usually, I can't afford my medication. Things are getting more and more stressful. I keep getting sent to see different doctors that we have to cancel with constantly because we don't have the gas to make it.

I started taking a new vitamin called CoQ10. It helped another person with Muscular Dystrophy I had been briefly acquainted to gain 30 pounds in a year. He only weighed a little more than I do now.

My birthday is this month!! February 25th! *Pisces pride!* If I make it this next nine days I'll have survived 24 years longer than anyone thought I would.

[People] like us don't die eas[ily].

I am however, in need of a decent food processor. While I do not expect to be able to purchase a top-of-the-line device, I would like to purchase an appliance that will last. I am also in need of a room humidifier. There are other items I am in need of, unfortunately I am very tired and not able to remember everything. I also do not know how I am going to pay for my next few prescriptions. I also may not have money for gas for upcoming appointments. I had to cancel a very important medical appointment with a new type of cardiologist to try to get more information on a new type of tachycardia that I have been diagnosed with and hospitalized for two, maybe three times last month. I need help.
