As a result of all of this, I have been unable to work; therefore, I have no income, other than my disability check, which funds are used to travel back and forth to the hospital. To make matters worse, I got a serious infection in my foot, which led to two toes being amputated. I can no longer stand for prolonged periods of time. Neuropathy also affects my thighs and legs, as I suffer from Arthritis in the hands and fingers, making work impossible for me.
On June 23, 2015, I was informed that I had to start dialysis because my kidneys were failing. This caused my pancreas to start failing, as well. Staying positive, I was put on two waiting lists and thought I would have an opportunity to get new organs. However, I was removed from the list due to heart failure, which means my heart is only functioning at 20%. I've had two heart attacks since then. I go to dialysis Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I spend the other days recuperating from the pain of dialysis. To sum this all up the cost of travel and the medicine has got me stuck. I can't afford it what it has come to.
To think... I might not be able to afford what I need to live!
I need to fight for my life. Please help me fight to live.
If you can find in your heart to help I would greatly appreciate it.
