Marisa - Urgent help Needed! I am requesting the contributions of my friends, it is very humbling and embarrassing to do but my friends have become my family so I am writing to ask for some assistance. For those of you that have been along in my journey to fight MS and to keep my immune system alive are aware that over the past two years I've been hospitalized most of the time and now I have been diagnosed with lupus on top of the MS. Chris and I are facing several challenges now but we are unable to handle all of this by ourselves. At the advice of my team of doctors we were advised to move me closer to more Progressive Healthcare because Western medication was creating grand mal seizures as well as affecting my kidney and liver functions ( I posted a pic when I am turning yellow) and they did not feel that I would make it much longer unless we made these changes. So we left everything changed everything and moved to New England. It was the most difficult thing I've ever had to do but when we arrived I was able to begin walking without the assistance of a wheelchair however, now I have new challenges that I am struggling with. I am determined to fight even harder ! Within the next 6 months I am going to be faced with several Financial challenges all at once that Chris and I are unable to Handle by ourselves. There are several different reasons why I am trying to do my first GoFundMe account because things have become extremely urgent and life-threatening for me if I can't find a way to make these changes. These donations would help me in the following ways :
1- it would help me with my co-pays for the seven new specialist I need to go to. Even though I am on Medicare each one does have a copay and because their specialist each one consist of $150 copay for each visit .
Physical Therapy 3 times a week
Cannabis physician for my seizure oils
2- we have to find a new apartment that is on the first floor to move into so that I am not stuck housebound most apartments in Connecticut are all on the third floor because we don't have large apartment complexes and due to the fact of my poor credit with multiple medical bills I'm struggling to find a place that will accept me on a rental basis they will need first, last and Security and generally the cheapest one bedroom you can find in my community runs 950 - 1000 without utilities. This is the biggest need of all that I have because there is no way that I'm able to go to all the specialist that I have to go to along with trying to come up with the financial resources to move (doc feels I will be back in wheelchair w/n 6 mos)I am terrified of being housebound unable to get up and down stairs this is the most difficult and humbling thing I've ever had to do and I appreciate everyone taking the time to even read my struggles but if anyone has any small ability to make a donation for me the way that I live my life is through Karma and I will definitely pass it on God bless and thank you!
