My Father has Multiple Sclerosis. Trying to raise money so he won't have to live the rest of his life in pain.

My name is Holly, I am 20 years old. I still live at home, due to my Father Health. My Father has Multiple Sclerosis, Addison's disease, and High Blood Pressure.

We live near Austin, Texas. There are 5 kids in my family, 4 of us still live at home, My Older Brother 21, Then Me 20, Next My Sister 18, and My Younger Brother 16. My Older Brother has a job and he gives all of the money he make’s to my father, to help support the family.

A few years ago my father was sent to the Emergence Room, due to high blood pressure. It was running 220’s over 110’s. The doctors could not get it to come down. It was a teaching hospital, so the doctor’s offered to run some tests, to see if they could find the cause. They never found the cause of the high blood pressure, but the Doctor said he had MS and in order to diagnose my father he would need to run several more tests. The Doctor also said that if he was able to get these tests done he might live 10 to 15 more years, if not he would probably never see 50, but we don’t have that kind of money and can’t afford insurance so the test have never been done.

My Father is now 48 years old and this last year has been the worst, he can hardly leave his room, much less leave the house or see his grandchildren.

I just don't know what to do, if he is ever going to get better he will have to be treated. But before he can be treated he must be diagnose.

Thanks for listening,
Holly
