Please help us raise enough money for my Dad to be able to be treated for Progressive-Relapsing Multiple Scleroses.

Hello,

My name is Holly.

My father has had Progressive-Relapsing Multiple Sclerosis for over 15 years that we know of, and at times it can be most difficult to live with. He is only 49 years old.
He is unable to go outside, shopping, to work, see his grandchildren or anything else that would require him to stand or walk any more, and has not been able to for over 5 years. He has never been able to be treated for Multiple Sclerosis because we do not have the funds to afford the many tests it takes to be “officially” diagnosed, and even if he was, we do not have the funds to pay for the treatment itself.

I have been my Dads personal caretaker sense I was 13 years old, I am now 20 years old and will continue to be for as long as he needs me.

My younger sister has taken care of all the household duties sense she was 12 years old, she is now 18.

I believe that when we are brought into this world, we are born with the desire to help our fellowman. You just have to do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

My Dad has never asked anyone for help, though he has helped a great number of people.

However I am doing everything in my power to help him and am unable to take care of all his needs. So I have no choice but to ask people for help, because I can’t do this alone.

We are trying to raise at least $25,000.00 dollars so my father can go to a doctor and have the test he needs done so he can be diagnosed. If my father can be treated then he will be able to live a better life without so much pain and heartache. Because there is a big difference between being alive and living.

Would you be willing to help my father and my family, by donating $5.00 dollars or more?

Thank you for your time, and God bless.
