Saving Scott

Hello and God Bless,

Scott is my son and he has been diagnosed with diabetes that went untreated by physicians for years. Due to this the battle is long. He continues to be a great man that any mother would be proud of. Scott was recently diagnosed with Hidradenitis Suppurativa, a skin disease, diabetic neuropathy, and a dislocation/Subluxation of left shoulder. Scott is still waiting for more testing on his liver due to his illnesses and he may have permanent damage, and currently going to physical therapy.  He has lost his jobs due to the untreated issues but can not get unemployment due to his job not firing him and putting him as "inactive due to illness". He is working on his disability now but that can take years.   He is waiting for his fertility appointment to check if he is sterile and unable to have children due to infections caused by his untreated illnesses. He is in a catch 22 situation and due to other family crises it is hard to help financially. Scott had to move out of California due to the loss of his job. Scott has no children and is only 32 years old. He is down and I don't want him to feel alone. Mom's always feel they let their child down in some way and this is hard to watch when he has always been a good person, never in trouble and always there to help anyone in need. 


We have been separated by the cost of living and illness yet we have faith that we are not alone. We only found out about his illness after he moved away and was rushed into surgery. He was misdiagnosed several times over several years. He worries about having gas money and rent money as he gets $200 in assistance. The cost for his medical treatments and living expenses is too great.  I pray anyone in this situation will find healing and a helping hand. Thank you very much. It means alot to us that you are here.
