Paula's Sarcoidosis Fund

I was diagnosed in September with Sarcoidosis disease.  It is an autoimmune disease in which your body attacks itself.   It requires me to follow a special diet with fresh fruits and veggies daily,  as well as constant lab testing and specialists, which gets expensive.  I also need another spinal fusion surgery , which I am delaying trying to deal with this disease.  Currently,  I am unable to work or drive.  I have depleted all funds & my husband cannot handle our financial expenses alone.  I have been approved for Social Security disability but will not receive any funds until the end of January next year.  Thereafter our financial dificulties will be resolved.   I need these funds immediately to cover current bills and groceries this month.  I appreciate anything you are able to donate at this holiday time of year!!!
