John is an insulin dependent Type 1 diabetic. He has had diabetes for 46 years. As a result of this, he is also being treated for glaucoma and high blood pressure. During this past year, John noticed that he was experiencing balance issues and having difficulty using his hands. After a series of tests and medical evaluations by a neurologist, it was determined that John has a progressive form of Multiple Sclerosis. He has been fitted with leg braces and is using walking sticks for assistance in walking. His physical limitations make it impossible for him to physically care for his wife Sherie. Currently, family members are taking turns staying with them providing care for both John and Sherie. Sherie is using continuous oxygen and a walker. She has a hospital bed and a wheelchair at home and requires assistance bathing and getting to the bathroom.
They have very limited resources to use towards their mounting medical bills.
