When Denny was in his early 40's, he was given the steroid Prednisone to help him battle an automimmune disease, Vasculitis. The Prednisone and his team of doctors clearly saved his life then, but unfortunately he was never taken off the medication and now, at age 61, is fully prednisone dependent.

Prolonged use of Prednisone causes a myriad of side effects - Denny has had cataracts removed from both eyes, colon resection surgery resulting in a colostomy, heart damage including 3 stents and aortic valve replacement surgery that caused ARDS in his lungs, and most recently he was diagnosed with acute Congestive Heart Failure and autoimmune hepatitis. Prednisone also hides many symptoms and greatly slows down the healing process, which is a nightmare.

Denny Baker is a 61 year old man who has worked his whole life, and I am his wife Laurel, an elementary school teacher. We find ourselves with mounting debt from medical bills and months of hospital stays. We have tried to keep up with the bills, but since this last diagnosis and 3 month stay in the hospital we are kindly asking for help.
