Approximately 20 years ago, Titi Lucy was diagnosed with a rare case of Muscular Dystrophy. It's a very slow degenerating disease. In the last 5 years, it's taken a toll on her muscles and has slowly been debilitating her abilities to function on her own. Her rock, life partner and husband, Tio Chiquin (Enrique) has been caring for her full time.
This past year she's had to make frequent visits to various medical doctors; general medicine, pulmologist, neurologist, etc. Due to the distrophy, Lucy is experiencing weakening of the heart and lungs. There's limited funds to cover the all of her medical needs so we're reaching out to you to help us fund a handful of those needs.
To help with her oxygen levels and breathing, it's recommended she sleeps in a reclinable bed. Also, Tio's van is having mechanical issues, the AC is not working and there a number of other problems with it.
With your support, we're hoping we can get the bed she needs and enough to repair the van or if we're blessed with enough funds, to get him a new "used" van that will be more reliable to take Titi to her appointments.
We'd like to raise these funds by the end of August 2017. We have set up a Wells Fargo account her benefit and medical needs if you feel more comfortable supporting our goal in that way. Please email me and I will pass along the bank account information.
Please know that anything you can assist with will go towards the ultimate goal of making Titi Lucy as comfortable as possible as this horrible disease runs its course.
