Darrell Critzer MS Costs Fundraiser

I am asking for help for my brother Darrell Critzer.

Darrell was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) July 2001 at the age of 31. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disease of the central nervous system (brain, spinal cord). MS is unpredictable and can cause symptoms such as extreme fatigue, lack of coordination, weakness, tingling, impaired sensation, vision problems, cognitive impairment and mood changes. Its effects can be physical, emotional and financial. Currently there is no cure.

Through the past 17 years, Darrell has battled through numerous exacerbations (flair-ups).  With each exacerbation, "side effects" of this disease have "lingered" of which have caused his health to deteriorate dramatically. 

As much as Darrell, myself and our family hate to admit it... the time has come for Darrell to move to a skilled nursing facility.  Darrell now requires full time care which we are currently neither physically or financially able to provide.  We have submitted Medicaid paperwork, and are hopeful the approval will come soon.  The Medicaid approval will open doors for us to get Darrell admitted to a facility that he so desperately needs at this point in his life.

The funds we are able to raise now, will be used to pay for the full time care Darrell requires immediately.  

Thank you in advance for your support and prayers.
