Dream Home

My name is Jeanna.  I am 44 and I have Spinal Muscular Atrophy,  which is a form of Muscular Dystrophy.  I have been confined to a wheelchair almost my whole life..  I have had a pretty awesome life.  I have amazing parents and one fantastic 19 year old son.  
The only thing missing in my life is an accessible house.  Many people take having a nice relaxing bath or a hot shower for granted.  I have not been able to take a  real bath in  over  20 years.  I have never lived in a home that I can enter every room.
my dream home has been brought to me twice now (yes the same one). I not only REALLY want this home but I NEED it.  I want to be able to take a bath in the nice big accessible bathtub.  The owner has agreed to finance it for an amount I can definitely afford.  My problem is I can no longer work and am on Social Security Disability.  There is no way on this amount of income I could afford any type of savings.  Crazy thing is even if I could the government would stop paying me and all my benefits would stop at $2000.  
I have 45 days to come up with $4000 or I will not be able to buy this home.  This money will be given to the owner of the house as a down payment on my dream home.  This would mean so much to be to take a bath.  Sit in the kitchen to watch and maybe help cook.  To be able to be in a bedroom with a door that I can shut for privacy when I have the nurses checking me over.
i would be for ever grateful and thankful to everyone who can help me achieve this goal.  Every dollar and every prayer helps!  If you are unable to donate I do understand but maybe you could pray for my wish, my hope, my dream!  And please share this story!  
Thank you and God bless!


PS .  For some reason gofundme is using the date that I became a member and not the date I set up the campaign so sorry for the confusion but the $4000 is due on June 1st. 
Thank you!
