Please help Scott in his continuing fight with your much appreciated donations .

My cousin Scott is a young man in his early 40ties who is living with terminal auto immune deficiency disease contracted in the early 1990's. Additionally he has developed severe multiple class epilepsy in several forms.
i.e. Recurring uncontrolled generalized tonic-clonic convulsive seizures,as well as uncontrolled partial sensory motor and Complex partial seizures with simple partial seizures and resulting intermittent sensory motor disruption. including Auditory ( disruptive language processing ) seizures.

Over years the combined effects of multiple seizures and side effects of medications have also damaged his short , intermittent and long term memory. Other side effects manifest as lethargy, visual disturbances ect., which have added to the detrimental toll on his overall physical health. Having been hospitalized on numerous occasions over the years for a range of auto immune deficiency related illnesses and conditions , Scott has amassed outstanding medical and physician co-pay bills to hospitals and doctors offices , and he struggles to meet monthly medication co-pays and other expenses.

Scott was a talented artist , painter and musician who relied on these skills as his primary source of income generation. Unfortunately the ability for him to rely on and continue to produce art or compose music and be self-sufficient has been compromised,due to various multiple injuries sustained during seizures,as well as the previously mentioned medical issues.He has also lost to a large degree his independence and relies on friends and others in his community to aid him in day to day activity's, transportation ect.. The loss of his ability to generate income has left him struggling to meet monthly expenses.

As his cousin I thought this would be a great way I and others could help him, as Scott has exhausted all possible resources.
