Let Liz Live

My mother Elizabeth is 47 years old. She has spent now more than half her life in chronic pain and fighting battles we cannot win without more money, unfortunately.  She has always put me and my other three siblings first, and now that i am old enough to see that she is in some life or death situations, I need to try everything i know, and when to admit its time to ask for help. I know that time is now.
The doctors only realized she had Ehlers Danlos Syndrome earlier this year, explaining the agonizing joint pain and problems, why she developed Epilepsy after a Head Trauma incident many years back, and why her back is deteriorating so quickly. There are really significant surgeries she needs which have been put off for too long,  
She has had  crippling Neuroma in her foot that must be operated on, 
she needs mouth reconstruction, expensive joint braces, she has an adhesion in her abdomen, she also is in major need of a breast reduction because of her scoliosis. 

My mother has fought harder than anyone i know to hang on and keep fighting for a good life, despite the endless pain that is coded into her genes and bones. I myself am only 22 and my teeth have started to fall from my own head, yet i dont have time to worry about my EDS because all i can see and think about is how its hurting and taking away more of my mother everyday.
She needs these operations so she can live a long life. Please, if you have anything to spare, it would mean the world to my family.
