Danas' better quality of LIFE

Hello, my name is Dana Maschino, 
 I was diagnosedwith Charcot Marie Tooth Muscular Dystrophy at 18 months, Muscular Dystrophy is one of a group of genetic diseases characterized by progressive weakness and degeneration of the skeletal or voluntary muscles which control movement.   I've had 7 surgeries so far in my life, and am about to face my 8th one, which is the most drastic surgery thus far. Despite my hardships, I always keeps a positive attitude, growing up with this disease I faced many challenges.  

About 9 years ago I started developing Lymph edma in my lower legs which has caused them to swell so much that there is no control left.

 I come to the public today for help, I'm about to go into surgery for bilateral amputation and I don't want to leave such a struggle on my sister who is currently fighting her own medical battles, to pay for my living quarters while I'm in rehab, along with my utilities, and I need to have my wheel chair repaired, which is something I have not been able to afford to do and I have no assistance to help me, sometimes the system truly works against you.

 My doctor stated that my time frame to return to my home could be anywhere for 3-6 months.   This money will help me with my living expense while recovering, and be able to fix to chair, I asking for everyone help as soon as possible because my surgery is scheduled for Feb 11, 2016.

 I’m so grateful to all of you for any help that I receive, prayers included. Thank you all SO MUCH..
