I had to go on disability several years prior to having a retirment to sustain me and a large penalty for having no choice but to begin drawing my full retirement account since it was a 12 years premature withdrawal.
I can't work as I legally can't drive with my seizures & occasionally have to use a wheelchair to be mobile. I have unpredictabe multiple sclerosis relapses where I have no concept of any thing going on around me--my spouse found me lying in the garden less than 2 weeks after my heart surgery, completely incoherent and slamming my sternum bashing up and down on the hard ground combined with over 15 falls with fractures from my poor balance related to my MS.
I am trying not to worry my husband with these bills, as he is mandatorily had to retire at age 57, so I am going to try to get help with this fundraiser without making him aware of my medical bill problems so he won't have even more worries brought on by me. He has his hands full being my caretaker and can't be away from our house very long to prevent injury to me.
I resorted to this as a last resort to ask my friends, family and church members or anyone else willing to donate to help me. I can honestly say I spent the majority of my life trying to help those in need and with sincere humbleness, I am praying you can help me in my really desperate time in need.
I now have $3,065 donations that I am so thankful for, but my needed amount to pay these medical expenses, travel and lodging expenses, uncovered high cost MS medications, etc. total $25,000 to avoid having to possibly lose our home and other essential items we need.
No matter how small or how large you are able to donate, every donation gets me closer to clearing this terrible situation. If you would kindly share this with your friends, family and churches, you could help me so much and I would be eternally grateful to all.
I would greatly appreciate and thank you from my heart for your donations and it would be very helpful that I can begin receiving them as soon as possible so I can immediately begin paying on my very high medical bills.
I am trying to sell anything that I have to help raise money and am also willing to give them to you if you so desire....and they are not yet sold...about $5,000 in very pretty jewelery and I also have (4) custom framed, beautiful and authentically signed NFL pictures: Peyton Manning and Dan Marino with multiple inscriptions for Peyton's 60,000 yard accomplishment; Peyton Manning for his XLI win and MVP also authentically signed; Peyton Manning and Tom Brady (no signature-but great picture; and Peyton Manning collage with the Colts official emblem; medium pic of Peyton Manning; 2 small pics of Peyton--authentically signed.
I am not trying to beg for your donation, but your donations could quickly pay off my medical bills, travel expenses to Cleveland, specialty meds, i.e. my noncovered MS injections. I am asking you to please consider helping me in my desperate time of need.
Thank you from my heart,
