MS, Cancer, Kidney Failure & Hauler


Since December 2015, my life has been in a constatant motion, sometimes like a roller coaster, othre times like a whirly gig, and at others a constant stop and start motion!
I fell one evening in late November and by December it was determined it was no longer safe for me to work in the kitchen I was working in and was let go. For almost a month, I went to interview after interview but was finding nothing. On December 31, I filed online for Disability and finished that application by phone after the 1st of the year. I moved in with my son and eventually my parents helped me get into the Pana Towers until the Senior/Disabled Homes opened in Nokomis, which is where I now reside, in my hometown.

Tomorrow, I will be a vehicle owner for the first time in about 6 years when I go in the morning and sign on the dotted line for a 2008 Dodge Dakota SXT. But with this GO FUND ME, I hope to accomplish somethings to make my life easier!

In July, it was determined that I need to use a motorized wheelchair when going any distance of more than a half block. So goal one, is to purchase a Recievable Hitch Mount for the truck and to have it installed. The Second goal is then to purchase a Wheelchair Hauler to go on the back end in order to take my chair everywhere!

The third part of this is Straps & Wheechair Cover in order to secure the chair and protect it from weather.
In getting a new chair there are things that are add ons that I would like to add in order to improve it's usefulness and visability so that is accounted for as well.

Finally I am about 10 months away from being elgible for Medicare and could use some extra funds in meeting my extremely high spend down amounts.

With having MS, Cancer on the backside of my Right Kidney, along with Kidneys that are failing in Stage IV Kidney Disease (Failure).

I am looking forward to a Partial Nephrectomy when they remove the Cancer and affected part of my Kidney and then will undergo indefinate length or Dialysis until my kidneys can function on their own or I recieve a Kidney Transplant!
