My name is Marilynn Taylor. Im 38 years old and I have 2 handsome boys that are ages 11 and 7. I have been in and out of the hospital since both of them were really young. I have a debilitating bone disease which caused me to loose both of my legs. I have ESRD..also knowm as End Stage Renal Disease. This requires me to have dialysis treatments 3 days a week to stay alive. I have a fighting sprit and I refuse to allow sickness and or disease difine who I am as a woman. I am here to raise money to put towards a down payment on a house that is wheelchair accessible. My place of residence currently has stairs which is becoming increasingly difficult to leave. It has been suggested that I check imto a rehabilitation facility where they can accommodate my physical needs. This would also mwan that I would be away from my children which is a devastating thought to me. I have already spent months on end away from them due to being hospitalized. I would like to do something as simple as cook for my boys. I have not been able to accomplish that becase of the very narrow space in the apartment. I have a very strong unshakable faith. My parents have always taught me how to be strong even during the most difficult storms. Every single time sickness tries to win.. I dust myself off and continue to fight for my life. I want to see my children grow up and become great men. I maintain and hold everything together so that they also will see examples of strength perseverance and determination.
