As most of you know, I suffered a stroke in Feb of 2016. The stroke left me incapacitated on my left side but my mental state is still very strong. I have been staying at an assisted living facility in Alpharetta, Ga ( Tapestry House) where I get physical therapy to hopefully be able to walk again.

It has been a rough road but I am working hard everyday. My love for the lord and my grandsons as well as my passion for photography is what is giving me strength to get back on my feet. I was hopeful that I could be back walking by now because I am  paying for the assisted living facility and rehab out of savings from my mothers inheritance, social security as well as help from son.

I am now  running out of savings and need alittle help in order to stay a bit longer and get rehabilitation. My expenses are roughly $4000 a month! 

Once my money runs out, the next step would be to enter the Medicare system, which would mean a nursing home. I am not ready to go off to a pace like that but if I still cant walk than I dont have any other choice. I am close to being able to walk with some assistance but need a few more months of focus in the current facility. I am asking my wide network of friends, artists, customers and family if they could help out with any donations possible.  This money will only be used to pay for my stay at the Tapestry House  in Alpharetta. 

Thank you and god bless
