FIGHT AGAINST CANCER & HOME REPAIRS

$585 of $2,400 goal

Raised by 9 people in 34 months
Thank you for reading my story. I am 77 years old. I AM VERY POOR. I can't work in any traditional way but take in a few dollars by using the Internet. I have MANY HEALTH PROBLEMS like fighting and beating CANCER. I live in deep POVERTY. My house needs many serious REPAIRS, like repairing all the leaking. I LACK many basic things such as a STOVE, a WASHER and a SHOWER also with my BREATHING PROBLEMS, I DO NOT HAVE AIR CONDITIONING;  MY DOCTORS SAY THAT AC IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR SOMEONE LIKE ME. And there are the high real estate taxes. Please read my FULL Story.

First here is a list of the major health problems that are treated by the fine doctors and nurses at The Cleveland Clinic Hospital, I have CANCER. I have Serious Heart Problems. I recently had a pacemaker put in but I also have aortic stenosis and aortic regurgitation which means I may need serious work done on my heart valve. I have Arthritis and Neck Pain. I have breathing troubles. I have digestive problems. I have Glaucoma in both eyes. I have acute bronchitis. With all this, sometimes I wonder why I am still alive.

All my stated health issues are substantiated by my medical records.
In spite of working very hard since I was 15 years old, I have no savings. (( THIS IS WHY DONATIONS ARE SO VERY IMPORTANT TO ME, ))
I live on a VERY SMALL FIXED MONTHLY INCOME. I live with my frail 89 year old sister in Cleveland, Ohio. ( She also has serious health issues, ) I am very weak but I help my sister as much as I possibly can. We live in a 110 YEAR OLD SUBSTANDARD HOUSE that we own. We have lived in the house most of our lives and we deeply want to keep it until the very end. WE HAVE A VERY DEEP NEED TO KEEP  THE HOUSE, WITHOUT IT THERE IS NOTHING.

Our home has poor heating, poor electric wiring, poor plumbing, some windows don't open. The roof AND the basement are leaking. The house needs many important and major repairs. But I ( we ) just don't have the money after paying all the bills. buying food, paying utilities bills and so on.  Some have said have said I should get a loan, There is NO WAY I could pay a loan back even if I could get one.
Also people have said I should I should contact the church, salvation army, goodwill, and places like that, Well I have many times and in the end it is always "Sorry we can NOT help." So I get no where. ... One reason I don't get help is that I have a life long speech impediment,  many people because of my speech impediment, think I  am dumb, unfit or just nuts.  The fact is that I have a BA and a high IQ.  But most DO NOT SEE PAST MY SPEECH  IMPEDIMENT. Also that is why I always had a terrible time making friends all my life. 

Also there is a REAL DANGER OF LOSING THE HOUSE


...   ......  After my TWO CANCER SURGERIES in October, 2015 and November, 2015, I been having series of chemotherapy. After some chemotherapy sessions I experience very bad side effects were I am disorientated with chills, pain and high fever and can just lay in bed the whole day and can hardly get anything done. But thanks to the GRACE OF GOD, my government insurance takes care of a lot of the high medical bills. ...

I do NOT have any real life friends now. My last REAL LIFE FRIENDS ALL DIED about 10 to 15 years back.

In my remaining years I want my sister and me to be free of the huge stress of hellish POVERTY. ... PLEASE, IF YOU CAN, JUST DONATE FUNDS.  ANY DONATION , LARGE OR SMALL WILL HELP AND BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. THANK YOU VERY MUCH 

SO PLEASE DONATE STRANGER. ANY AMOUNT IS BETTER THAN NOTHING.
THANK YOU and God Bliss You

New UPDATE 1//8/2018 >>> I told you before in my story, what bad condition my house is in. ... Today I just took a walk a walk around the house. Here is a summery. ... The house is a wreck. The windows frames are coming away from the wall. There are broken and missing floor boards through out the house. Electrical system does not function in some of the rooms. The roof leaks in many rooms and plaster has come down. Basement foundation walls are crumbling. The main sewer line is stopped up. Plumbers claim that the sewer line is full of tree roots. Wind blows in the back door because there is now a 4 inch open space at the bottom of the door, Not very nice but I am glad that I have a house at all. So you see why I ask for donations day after day.

With my breathing troubles, I strongly need AC in the summer but with the old wiring, a very strong wire has to be run from my second floor bedroom to the basement for safety reasons.The cost for that is around $500.00.

I'm so sorry for your situation. I can't afford to help you, I'm in the same financial boat you're in, and I am having to support my adopted special needs daughter. But, have you though about selling your property and living in a nice, retirement community? I am. It's nicer, you'd have a lot of people to help you,. They share some of your issues. Good luck to you and your sister. I'll pray for you.

I really do feel for you. But my question is this, why don’t you move? Get out if that place that seems like a fire trap and he’ll hole. Instead of staying there waiting for donations to pour in, and compromising you and your sisters lives, get out. Be proactive in your own lives. Why don’t you sell the place and move into somewhere where it is safe? If you choose to stay where it’s unsafe, it’s almost like telling everyone that you’re choosing to live in these conditions. You have options, whereas some people have no options. I think this may also be why you are not receiving as many donations as you would like. I wish you luck, but think that you should rethink your situation and broaden your options.

Focus on Natural Based Alternatives for cancer Treatment. Western Medicine is far to expensive and dangerous. Try Detoxing with Lemon and half of tablespoon of baking soda 4x a day for 2 weeks to eliminate any toxins in your body that are causing cancer. Then nutrify your body with Vitamin B17- apricot seed, Turmeric, B vitamins and Astragulus to help repair damaged DNA. Ive had plenty of luck with these.
