Toms Ehlers-Danlos fund

Since 2009 my health has become an issue for our family. I lost my great paying job because I became Ill and the hospital I worked for fired me when I was unable to come back to work. Since then I have had surgery on my left shoulder, left ankle, right shoulder, and am about to have bilateral hip surgery. After the second surgery I was finally diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. Previous to the diagnosis, the doctors kept telling me it was all in my head. Since I continue to get worse, the diagnosis finally made  me feel like I wasn't crazy.
my wife, Valerie,  works full time but we actually took about a 70k pay cut when I lost my job. This disease is genetic and my 10 yr old daughter was also diagnosed. The bills are out of control, my family hasn't had a vacation in a very long time. All the hobbies that I had are gone.
we just need some help.
