Josephine Arroyo Kogler is organizing this fundraiser.
I am 48 yrs old. As you can see in my profile pic which is 4 years apart, my illness, medication and stress have taken their toll. Medical bills and hospital bills are way over $50,000 just for me. I am only asking enough to cover some OF MY medical, dentures etc . I have different forms of arthritis, need knee replacements, have fibromyalgia which causes over 200 other symptoms. I need a full set of dentures costing a bit over $6,000. I need full dentures because 20+ yrs of pain meds and a yr of oxygen therapy have rotted my teeth, according to the dentist. As you see, 4 yrs ago my teeth were fine. I am having a pain pump implant early next year and both knees hopefully replaced sometime next year. As you can see in my picture within 4 years, I have gained over 100 lbs. I also suffer from absent seizures, diagnose this past January but suffered for at least 10 yrs. Stress brings them on. I get Aura's, confused, dizzy , confused sometimes for minutes, sometimes for days where I need to be hospitialized. The stress of money does not help. We need help and I hate asking for it. We are both on fixed incomes and do not work do to our health conditions. I have had 4 back surgeries. Please help. We have a son in college, who has no spending money, because we have none to give him and his schedule makes it pretty hard for him to pick up steady work. But, he never complains, nor asks for money, but as a Mom, I feel awful. Please, if you can find it in your heart to help me and relieve some of the stress in my life, I would forever be greatful. My children are grown but are unable to help financially.. I need help, please find it in your heart to help. Thank you and God Bless.
