I am here to ask for help for my darling and loving friend Natalie. She has been living with chronic health issues due to Lyme disease for the past 8 years. Chronic Lyme disease has caused her to be in and out of hospitals for the past five years with varying stays lasting from three days to weeks at a time trying to find answers. Unfortunatly, recently she has come to a stand still in her physical progress and it has gotten the best of her. She recently has had to take a leave of absence from work due to a recent severe decline in her health. She has always worked full time as a server and has no PTO, FMLA or medical coverage. The cost of her medications, alone, to maintain her daily health are extremely expensive. It has been a struggle everyday to juggle such a physically demanding job while trying to improve her health issues. It has been counter productive to her health and physical well being to try and continue down this path.

So, with that being said...I am here to ask for help and assistance for Natalie with her daily and monthly financial needs. The severe decline in her physical condition causing her to take a leave of abence from work has brought me here to share her story. The extreme monthly costs alone for her medications to maintain her daily health and her daily living needs cannot be met by her right now. There is a real struggle to decide whether to purchase her expensive medications or maintain her household. I am asking for help so that she does not have to choose between the two while she has to take this time to heal and improve her physical health.

She is very fortunate to be surrounded by a very loving mother, supportive boyfriend and friends that she calls her family in her life right now. So, I am asking you for support in her battle for wellness. I believe that with help from you and the support of her family she can make a positive recovery. We as her friends and family will be eternally grateful for any help in her journey and would appreciate it if you as well could share her story with your friends and family. Any financial assistance you can offer her right now while she is physically unable to be working, will help to keep her on the positive path of battling her illness and improve her declining health and quality of life!

Hi friends!
This is April and I would like to take a monent to thank everyone for their kind words and generous donations to the "Natalie's Needs" campaign over this past year! All of your kind words were emotionally beneficial, more than you will ever know, and your monetary donations were super incredible and went a long way in supporting Natalie's homelife and medical needs this past year...we still can't believe it has been a year already.
This past year has not been easy and definitely an uphill battle for Natalie. She is still unable to work, while thankful that her health has not continued to decline, there have been no improvements. She still requires the same medical needs that are finacially and emotionally draining. Natalie has reached out and is currently working with a few state and federally funded programs. However helpful these programs can be, it is unfortunately a very slow moving process.
With that being said, this is why I am reaching out to all of our friends again. I am reopening the "Natalie's Needs" campaign with hope in my heart of the generosity of last time from our friends, family and community!
