Laura needs a home

I am a 61 year old divorced ,disabled woman named Laura Anne Winter- Wasmuth.I suffer from severe Osteoarthrits,disc disease ,scoliosis,and asthma,( borderline c.o.p.d.)and numerous other health problems,including physical and mental depression.In addition I just had foot surgery due to advanced arthritis,which is still in the healing process. I have had to move from place to place for years,because of divorce,financial circumstances,domestic violence,and health.At the end of Dec.of 2016,moved into an old cracker house,from a low rent apt. Complex.I thought this was going to be great for me .it needed cleaning,painting and so forth.Had a yard and was located in what I thought was a good neighborhood.I started to fix it up and as I did,I made a terrible discovery.My new place was full of mold! Green,black and white.The black mold,which is deadly,is in the walls and was under all the carpeting.I can't get rid of it! I've been on a nebulizer and inhalers to begin with because of my asthma.I have now been having chronic bronchial infections,causing extreme difficulty in breathing.I have been getting treated by physicians,however,I need to move from this my current location ,as soon as possible,or the infections will continue to occur. I recently purchased a little pop-up camper as a temporary solution,so I'm not in the house all the time,except to cook,shower,and use o the bathroom.My pulmonary specialist has instructed that I use a ventilation mask every time I enter the house. With the purchase of my camper,and funds that I used to fix up the place,I haven't any money remaining.My credit cards are maxed to the limit. I really don't want to ask for any aid in financial matters,I have always worked for what I have .Now,I can't work and in desperate need of financial assistance.I also am without furniture,since it has all been contaminated.I've waited so long in asking for assistance,due to my beliefs in working and making it by myself.However,now the weather is cold,in the 30's in my area of Florida! My pop-up camper has a small heater,it isn't enough to keep warm,even with assistance of two comforters and a blanket. I am seeking funds to either purchase a recreational vehicle or a little house,(mobile). I wholeheartedly thank anyone and everyone that can contribute to making this happen. I really hate to even ask ,but it has reached a point ,where I must.!! I thank you all in advance for taking the time to read this and possibly contributing. Thank you! Laura Winter
