Support me while I heal

I was in a high impact car accident four years ago that damaged my liver and then a doctor prescribed a medication that has a side effect of liver damage. I was on that medication for 10 months before any blood work was ordered and now I am in liver failure. The silver lining is that given enough time, enough rest, and with radical diet changes the liver can heal.

My doctors have told me that rest is key and I find it difficult to rest because I need to work. Six weeks ago when I collapsed once again and was in my doctor's office asking why, she asked me what it was that I wasn't understanding. Without resting there is possibility of permanent damage, even death. I have exhausted all of my resources and simply do not know what to do.

I am asking for your help. I am working to raise enough money so that I can work for only 3 or 4 hours a day for six months, and therefore I can heal. I have been trying to do this alone with only the help of my parents but my level of need is simply too big for us.

I am now reaching out to ask for your support so that I can fully lean into my doctor’s prescribed treatment plan of more rest, change in diet and reducing my stress levels. I am asking for $12,000 to support me for the next 6 months. I deeply appreciate your willingness to give. I am asking for you to donate the cost of a bowl of soup, the traditional gift to those who are ill, which is $7.00. Please help me with a bowl or soup, or five bowls of soup whatever you are able to do. Anything is needed and received with deep gratitude.
