The Daughter of Annie Green is uniting to help raise money to help her battle her chronic illness (systemic Lupus) and medical bills.

My mom (Annie Green) has a chronic illness, she lives everyday with pain in her knees, back, feet , arms and shoulders, she has more downs then ups. She never have fun because all her money goes to hospital bills or doctor offices and monthly medications: She has a Nephrologist, Rheumatologist, Cardiologist, Gastrologist and Dermatologist. All these are specialist and they cost more than her PCP her insurance only pays for well visit with out co-pays. which is a lot, the emergency room is 200. and if admitted $200 a day up to 5 days. One of her hospital stays cost over 250,000 for 27 days. Another one for 3 week stay over $200,000 and her insurance either go up too much she can't pay for it and they cancel for non-payment. My mom has been sick since i was 6 years old. I remember when i was 8 years old i had to call rescue for my mom because she had a stroke and she couldn't talk. Which was the 2nd one in 2 months, the first one was in June and she couldn't remember her name or phone number and a friend had to call my father to come and get her. #2 in August where couldn't talk. All my life i have been so afraid that i am going to lose my mother each time she has an episode which is many, one day my father was helping her on the toilet he walked out to get the phone which was ringing and KABOMB my mom fainted and fell to the floor. When we do go out we can just be strolling along and she falls because he knees or legs give out from under her. But this is a woman who works everyday, when she can, she tells me if she didn't work, she would get worse and will become a total invalid, and that would really kill her. All i want to do is create as many memories with my mom as i can so when she goes (HOME) I can have those fund memories to cherish and keep me going. If I can get someone friend, family or do-gooder to help us in our time of need, i promise i will pay it forward when i am done with my studies in less then 2 years. I am studying to be an RN to help my mom and others who need a loving and helping hand. I am 20 years old. And i want my MOM to LIVE! My mom would like to try the new drug Benlysta a new treatment for Lupus , it's so newinsurance won't touch it and it's too expensive to do on our own.  So please help us in this journey.
