Help us Fight Stage 4 Lupus

Hello my name is Aurea Pereira and im battling stage 4 lupus. I am constantly in surgery because of Fat Necrosis due to a weak auto immune system. I also have carpal tunnel on both hands and need to do surgery for both of my hands. I just had spinal fusion and I am currently dealing with excessive liquid that has to be removed every week. I’m in a lot of pain daily, it hurts to move. Not only because of my disorder but also due to the many incisions that are still healing. Almost every month and almost every week I have a procedure and testing done. Which is ALWAYS extremely PAINFUL. But I have to KEEP FIGHTING to see my babies grow up to what they dreamed to be and for my grandkids to actually get to know me and not a photograph of what I once was. I wanna be able to hold them again without the constant pain because I can’t afford the medication that week or how to get there being I can’t drive due to my pain. I have a family who NEEDS ME. And I refuse to stop or quit. I am not working and I’ve asked the government for help but since I have a pre-existing condition and the new laws regarding healthcare and SSI requirement are changing, I am fighting to get the proper care I need. I NEVER ask for help but I need HELP please! I am struggling to buy medication, cover cost of procedures/surgeries I’ve already done. I’m a mother and have to pay rent which I am barely doing and juggling with extensive medical bills, and trying to put food on the table for myself let alone my girls. I’m REALLY struggling and drowning in debt. I’m even begging DOCTORS for free experimental treatments to help find a cure and cut cost in seeking more professional help. I’m asking my beautiful Niece TIA CYRUS for help and getting awareness out there about Lupus and in hopes my story is heard and understood that I have been going through this secretly alone and asking the government which I pay taxes for and am a citizen for a little help. I get the door shut on my face over and over again. And I feel like I’m loosing a battle to be heard or even helped. Thank you for taking the time to read this and to everyone who has helped me out. I have all of you in my prayers. God bless and thank you for your donation.
