Carmen's Medical Fund
the spinal cord, ultimately resulting in the loss of ability to use one's muscles. An average person lives 3-5 years from the first onset of symptoms. The body degenerates slowly, while the mind remains intact.
As if the ALS diagnosis was not enough, it came in the aftermath of my brother losing his job last November. Since the diagnosis itself took so long, and the medical bills from the diagnosis kept rolling in, their financial situation has become very precarious. They have made cuts in their spending to reduce expenses, but still struggle to pay their bills. Their financial situation has escalated to the point that very quickly they will be faced with losing their house of 22 years.
Needless to say, in this short period of time, John and Carmen’s lives have changed dramatically. They are no longer able to work – Carmen because of the toll this terrible disease has taken on her body, and John, of
course is by his wife’s side to lovingly care for her. In spite of this, my brother continues to look for a job, but he has not been able to find job prospects at his former level of responsibility and pay grade. He is currently taking some classes to be able to substitute teach.
My brother has exhausted all other avenues and his daily expenses have become overwhelming. Carmen with her limited energy needs to focus on staying strong to fight this paralyzing disease -- not on how to pay for it.
Please help make a difference in her life and donate whatever you can towards her fight. No amount is too small!
How You Can Help:
This GoFundme campaign will help Carmen in her fight with ALS including medical bills, home renovations and adaptive equipment she will need for mobility and communications.
Any help, donations, and prayers are accepted with immense gratitude.
We are in fact encountering unexpected hard roads along with my wife sickness. Now and along all current burdens of our tragedy, the bank want to send our roof of years to foreclosure. The bank give us the ultimatum of paying them about $4,600.00 to avoid losing the house and we have until February 1 to comply with the bank. So I am making a call to all contributors of this cause to help us out on this campaign. It is even bad that Carmen got this strange and unknown sickness and that I have not been able to land a job to provide but is even worse that another problem is added to the top of this situation. I have not told Carmen of our latest added situation. I think is too much for her to worry about. Along with her sickness and without a job for me to provide, all of the latest news would make it very difficult for us knowing that we may become homeless.
So I am making a call to all contributors to try to expand the amount of contributors of this campaign in awareness of the latest event. I know this is embarrassing and difficult to
post and make public but I am reaching out to goodness of people to help with our burdens.
THANK YOU FOR HELPING US,
GOD BLESS and HAPPY 2018!
We are encountering hard roads along with my wife sickness . Now and along all burdens , the bank wants to send us to Forclosure . We would need $4,600 to pay them to avoid losing the house. We have until February 1 to pay this amount. So I am making a call to all contributors to try to help on this matter. It is bad enough that Carmen got the sickness and that I have not been able to land a job but we do not want to add another problem to our current problems. I have not yet tell Carmen of the lates situation. Along with the sickness and without a job all has been very difficult for us but it would be even more difficult if the three things get combined and we may become homeless.
Please all who know us try to expand this list so more people may end helping us . I donor want added other thing or burden to all good people but quite and plane this is our current situation.
THANK YOU , GOD BLESS and A HAPPY NEW 2018!!
