Sarah Kirk is a 37 year old single mother, she is currently experiencing financial difficulties due to back injuries. Lets show our support!

Sarah Kirk is a 37 year old single mother, she is currently experiencing financial difficulties due to back injuries. Please take some time to read her story and if possible help contribute.

Years ago Sarah had a minor back injury at work, she was instructed to take anti-inflammatories for back pain. This past year however the pain increased significantly and further testing revealed that she had 3 disc bulges. One of them had an annular tear, stenosis of the lumbar spine, as well as nerve root exposure.

This has prevented Sarah from being able to work. Her doctors have put her on medical restrictions leaving her unable to complete the duties of her job. However she has been battling with her disability insurance company for coverage.

Because of this Sarah's resources have been tapped out, she has cashed out her 401K, and does not qualify for state assistance due to her daughters part time job.
As she waits for resolution with her disability insurance company her funds are dwindling. She has sold personal possessions and family members have helped all they can.

She is now in danger of eviction. She can not afford the cost of transportation to make it to her medical appointments as well. It is also her daughters Senior year of highschool.

She is currently being treated through Allina Clinics and working with a physiologist at the Sister Kinney Rehabilitation institute three days a week.

Please consider making a donation to the cause, 100% of the money raised will go directly to Sarah's medical expenses.

Donations of gas cards are also greatly appreciated and can be routed to Sarah by emailing erinmarge@live.com for more details.

Any amount helps, and is greatly appreciated!
