Nora's Medical and Therapy Expenses

Hello everyone! My name is Nora (Pena) Rivera, a wife to a wonderful husband and a mother of two beautiful girls. About a year ago, I was diagnosed with an auto immune disease called Scleroderm, thickening of the skin. Prior to being diagnosed I spent 5 awesome years working as a home health nurse doing what I enjoyed most working with others that were in need of care. But the tides have turned and I have become the one that is now dependent on others for help. My hands are contracated leaving me with just movement in my thumbs so I have lost the ability to do simple daily task such as dressing myself, combing my hair, and bathing on my own. Due to the rapid advancement of the disease I am having to attend both Physical and Occupational Therapy on a daily bases in an effort to perserve my current flexibility and range of motion of my upper and lower extremities. If there is anyone out there that is able to assist with my rising medical bills I would be greatly appreciate it. On behalf of myself and my family I would like to thank you all in advance. May God bless you!
