Stolen Equipment Funding

I'd never thought I'd write something like this. On on 4/27/17, around 3:30pm-5:15pm at the Beach Chalet in San Francisco, CA my luggage full of photography equipment was stolen from my extended family members suv. Heres why I need this help very much. I had a liver transplant when I was 6months old (I am 25 now), and later developed dermatomyositis. This two alone have owned my life (among the "lesser" conditions I have. I've never been a normal kid, teen, adult. And I'll never be. For me it is very hard to earn a living (physically and mentally) because of my medical conditions. Over the past 4-5years (and when I fell in love with photography in 2009), i've been working myself to the best of my availability to earn money myself (or sell my things) and pay for everything myself. I have specifically selected certain equipment for my physical limits. On top of my actual cameras and lenses, I had a Pelican 5010 so my arms wouldn't hurt and a Holdfast Holster Strap so I can be pain free when photographing, because it has slowly taken a toll on me. On this day, I was on a favor job for my extended family, with finally all the equimpent I ever needed or dreamt of. Whoever stole my equipment also stole my personal information, precious photos of that wedding day, a good amount of personal photos, and my enthusiasm.

All I ask, is what you can help with of course. I am praying for act of kindness or miracle. Thank you ahead of time. Please do share through any social medias or texting. I truly love photography and it breaks my heart that it was taken away from me in a matter of minutes. I don't post a lot of my photography on my personal pages but if you need proof of my love for this career, please visit:
