Help Lauren get a bed she deserves

Hi everyone, my name is Anthony. My wife Lauren suffers from a very rare disease called Gastroparesis, a condition in which your stomach is paralyzed and cannot digest food. Gastroparesis, otherwise known as GP, can come alongside many other ailments including chronic joint pain, anxiety, sleep disorders, and many more. The sad reality of this disease is that there is no cure, and very little treatment. Lauren can rarely find relief with this disease, and sleeping is one of the only things that can bring her actual “relief”. Lauren currently struggles with her sleep, not only because of her disease, but also because of our uncomfortable mattress. I am starting this campaign to fund for a comfortable mattress for Lauren, along with an adjustable base. This would bring her much needed relief in her life. Also, having an adjustment base would help assist her getting in and out of bed, which is something that she has had difficulty with. Helping fund this campaign would bring much needed relief to Laurens life, and as her husband I would be so grateful to have the help to do so. This past month I left my full time job so I could be home more to help with Lauren and her disability. This has been a blessing in many ways, however financially it’s been challenging to get by. This gift of gratitude would be given to Lauren for Christmas. Thank you all for taking the time to read through this and if you are able to support this campaign, thank you so very much.
