Fighting Lupus Living Life

Dear friends,

I've known this dear friend for 30+ years. She is still the same genuine soul that I first met in 7th grade. Life threw a curve ball her way with the diagnosis of Lupus and it has set her back physically, emotionally, and financially. As many of you know, Liz is a person that puts others first always. Well now it's her time to put herself first. As much as you know that she does not like to ask for help, she's reached a point where she is forced. Liz needs help for medical bills, car repairs and just everyday living. She would like to move to Denver where her fiancé, Zulma, will be able to take on Liz's care when she is unable to care for herself much less her beloved fur babies Maxx and Sammie. Please contribute what you can even if it's just $5. That $5 will and can help Liz tremendously. Please continue to keep our Lizzie in your prayers and let's help this amazing gal out. Thank you and God Bless ~ Carrie

Hello! If you’ve had the pleasure to know Elizabeth, you know she is a giver and not a taker. So it is very difficult for her to ask for help. Elizabeth has not been able to work due to chronic pain and fatigue stemming from complications die to having Lupus. She has gone through numerous test and surgeries that haven’t helped her get better or lead to a path of recovery. This hasn’t stopped her from making and delivery food to the homeless and helping out others (if you have suffered from chronic pain, you know it is hard to get out of the house, let alone get out of bed). Elizabeth now needs our help.Elizabeth’s long-term disability is now refusing to pay her what she is owed and are forcing her to apply for social security disability even though they guaranteed to pay her for 35 years! Elizabeth needs money to live and a decision from social security could be several years out. She doesn’t live an extravagant life, but we all know rent and food isn’t cheap. Please contribute to Elizabeth’s GoFundMe account. Your money will help her feed herself and furry friends and to move towards a stable environment where her partner can care for her when needed. Skip the coffee shop or pub for a week and give your savings to Elizabeth.Any amount will help!!!Elizabeth believes in and has t supported our community, now she needs our support.Thank you,Jen Teegarden
