My name is Nolan Fields. At approximately 11:30 pm on July 18, 2014 I went to sleep and I woke up approximately at 5:00 am on July 19, 2014 and I was paralysed from the waist down. By the time I made it to the hospital, I was paralysed from the chest down and I could barely use either of my arms. Through the grace of God I have been given use of my arms back but I am still paralysed from my chest down. I was in the hospital for 59 days. My diagnosis is acute transverse myelitis. They cannot give me a prognosis because every case is different. My life has changed completely since the acute onset of the disease and now the daily activities that all of us take for granted such as walking, using the bathroom, working, putting on clothes, etc. have become either impossible or laborious. I am asking, begging, and pleading for assistance in order to help me pay for my rehab(it just ran out on the 15th of December), doctor's appointments, and the medical prescriptions until I finally get Medicaid which has been pending since this tragedy befelled me.
