Help Leah fight!

My name is Leah and I am 27, I live in New Jersey I have multiple chronic illnesses SCD, Lupus SLE & Crohns. Chemo, biological infusions, medical supplies, homecare supplies, health insurance payments, co pays, basic essentials and so much more is needed. In March 2019 I lost my job due to being laid off. I had been with the company for almost two years and despite asking about the security of my job several times months before this happened, I was hit with a surprise that they no longer needed me one week before graduating with my BS in Psychology. In 2017, I was denied disability and with no other choice, have had to work despite my illnesses progressively worsening. I make and sell items to help pay for my medical expenses such as necklaces, shirts, bracelets and keychains. I’m in pain every single day and sometimes can’t even get out of bed. I have an extremely weak immune system due to medications and chemo that I am on and common things like the flu could kill me. Common colds and sinus infections can turn into pneumonia or acute chest syndrome quickly and kill me. I have damage of my nerves and excruciating muscle pain in my shoulders, back and neck from previous procedures that were meant to make it better, but only further debilitate me.




UPDATE December 2021 
This fundraiser stays up for continuous help with general medical expenses.
My other fundraiser, in my link as well is to help with getting the mobility aids and supplies I need as well as hopefully helping towards my bucket list once I get a new oxygen concentrator. I can’t travel without one and I am officially out of emergency small oxygen tanks and have no way to refill them.
