My aunt told my mother about this site and she passed the site on to me. 

The reason I am asking for donations is that I have been in pain since the beginning of the year and FINALLY after repeated Xrays, CT scans and lastly an MRI.  I found out I have a disease called,

Avascular Necrosis.

I have it in both hips and have to get a full hip replacement on BOTH hips.  They also informed me of some cysts that were around the bone that I will find out Monday why they are there,and severe arthritis in my lower back from this. 

I have been a hairstylist for 15 years and I have become very debilitated by this disease.

I still work but my job has no choice but to cut down my hours to part time.

  I was in a very bad car accident at 16 where I nearly lost my leg. That was the starting cause of the arthritis.  I have always thanked GOD for saving my life that day

  When I was 19 I started having problems with my back and all the way down my leg. 

I have to work but soon I will be unable to due to this disease. 

I have NO financial help from anyone else and am completely on my own. 

My work does not offer insurance, or sick leave pay. 

I work at a very busy salon and there aren't really any breaks in a busy salon. 

I have Rent & utilities just like everyone else and the Dr's anticipate my having to be out of work for a year due to the severity of my condition. 

I lay awake almost every night praying for help financially.

Avcascular necrosis is where there is death of the bone due to lack of blood supply, which in turn leads to distruction of the bone and the joint.  It is basically that I am walking on two broken hips.  Lately I have had issues with my hips buckeling and I end up falling to the ground causing intense pain. 

I have always had a good work ethic that my parents instilled in me, this is hard asking for help from strangers but, I am in dire need of some assistance.

So I'm swallowing my pride & asking for your help. Thank you soooo much.
