Help Mark get back on his feet

Donation protected
Hello everyone. My name is Mark.  As some of you know, I got the Moderna covid vaccine back in April and had a horrible reaction to it. I was hospitalized for almost a week and in the hospital on my birthday. They called in an infectious disease doctor while I was in the hospital and that's when they determined I had vasculitis. It's a terrible disorder that causes inflammation of the blood vessles. I literally had holes in my legs. It's been a terrible experience. 

(These pictures are from April- August, early September). My legs have gotten much better but now it's moving down into my foot.

They are putting me on methotrexate to try and treat this. I get severe joint pain sometimes, it's awful. The next step is a shot called dupixant which my insurance does not cover. My legs have healed mostly but now it's moved into my foot. I cant wear regular shoes without extreme pain and because of all of this, I haven't been able to work. I'm not one to ask for help but I'm really in need of it right now and prayers they're always welcomed.  If you can help at all, I'd greatly appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. If you can't maybe just send me some prayers and share my story. What happened to me is very rare, and I just want to get back on my feet. God bless you all.
