This was started to pay for one year's worth of my most important medication; the funds will be spent on this medicine only.

My name is Jack Lurhstaap Romero. I am 27 years old and I live in California. I have been 100% disabled, with severe chronic pain as well as mental problems, since the age of 19. I am unable to work, and the money I get from Social Security just isn't enough to pay for everything I need to pay for, including my caregiver's salary and my medicines. I will limit myself here to asking for help with one specific thing, though. The one medicine I take that is most important is also the most expensive. If I can raise $2,500, that will be enough to pay for one year's worth of that medicine. It would be a tremendous help and allow me to be able to pay for other much needed things like taking care of my dental health, which is also in horrible condition. This is important not just for my own sake. My mother is in her mid-60s and even more profoundly disabled than I am. She relies on my physical, emotional, and financial support to survive. But with me in the condition I'm in, I'm not much help, and it breaks my heart to be a burden to her when I should be a help. I am at my wit's end and don't know what to do anymore. She learned about this type of site and suggested I give it a try. So here I am. Thank you very much for reading and I appreciate that you took the time.
