Recently my son called and told me my daughter was in the hospital. She is a strong woman and seldom is sick, though a couple of years ago she was in an automobile accident and it slowed her down quite a bit.
Bridgett put herself through chiropractic school and was doing quite well until 2012 when she lost her beloved husband Fred to ALS. It was truly a hard time for her.
Now she is faced with the diagnosis of MS ( Multiple Sclerosis) a disease with no cure the cause of MS is still unknown – scientists believe the disease is triggered by as-yet-unidentified environmental factor in a person who is genetically predisposed to respond.
The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease.
She had begun to dance and give dancing lessons this is really hard for her. She now has to make plans on moving as where she lives in on the second floor of a boarding house. She is down really to just a bed and dresser everything else has been sold.
Not only is going to need monies for her rent but also furnishings and the apartment has too big enough to enable her to get around in a wheel chair.
She will be in the rehab for a couple of more weeks trying to build up her strength. I would like to help her but we are just getting by ourselves so I am reaching out to her friends and mine and asking if you can give what ever you are lead to enabling her to find a suitable apartment she will be able to get in and out of.
