Michelle, is a loving, compassionate, friendly, funny and happy person and she also happens to have MS...Multiple Sclerosis. Sadly, now she is facing another challenge in her life.
Michelle is being involuntarily vacated from the home she has lived in for the past 10+ years. She is on a waiting list for an assisted living facility and will be moving on her own into her new accommodations in hopefully less then a month. It's been a very stressful situation, but she is taking it in stride.

We have the opportunity to help her. The purpose of this fundraiser is to help Michelle get a fresh start and to be as self-sufficient as possible.
Regardless of this loving woman's hardship with MS, she has a beautiful smile most of the time and wonderful laugh. Her humor is sharp and loving. She does not wallow in her struggles, but finds delight in moments with friends and with her children.
As you think about your own problems...can you imagine being so young and being unable to walk without assistance? Or vision impairment, hip surgeries, food allergies and the lack of freedom to be self-sufficient! These are challenges that Michelle faces every day.
Diagnosed at 19, Michelle has been battling MS for over 20 years, she used to drive, work and take care of her children. Her sons, now teenagers will continue to live with their father, but are excited for their mother to find the opportunity to feel secure and cared for in the assisted living situation. They anticipate great visits that will focus on laughs and love and not hardship or turmoil as Michelle will be in a loving and healthy environment.

Due to Michelle's lack of funds, not to mention her disabilities, we are asking for your help. We are seeking monetary and donated items, ie; furniture, cleaning products, paper products, etc... a detailed list is being created to be posted at a future date.
We all have our challenges; lack of employment, difficult mortgage debt, car loans...but these are problems Michelle would dream to have as it would mean she was capable of employment, own a home, or have the privilege to drive a car. We take so much for granted, but you can help make this a new beautiful beginning for her full of blessings.
Please donate to help Michelle get on her feet, give her a chance to start a new chapter in her life.
