We are raising money for impending and past due medical expenses for both of our medical conditions.

Let me start off by saying that we understand being strapped financially...all we are asking is that you read our story, give a little if you can..or pass it on if you know someone who might be able to help. My husband is Ron. He turned 32 last month and he is debilitated by a very rare terminal illness. Central Nervous System Vasculitis is the name and among other things, he has suffered close to 30 documented stroke since 2007. There is no cure and his prognosis isn't great...its a race to see which will kill him first, the illness or the medication. He takes a handful of pills in the morning and at night. We go in for monthly doctor appointments and blood draws. We live in a rural area so it is at least an hour drive for his treatment and gas is not cheap. We live solely on his Social Security Disability. He cannot be left alone so I cannot work and we do not qualify for any assistance. Needless to say we are struggling...badly. In recent months my health has begun to deteriorate. I am now taking a handful of pills each day myself, requiring doctor visits and blood draws. I have no insurance so as I am sure you can understand, I am not getting the best of care, or all that I need. I am faced with a partial, possibly a complete hysterectomy soon to halt the spread of cervical cancer cells. I also have a pretty serious non healing back injury that makes everything difficult, if not impossible. I plan on running this fundraiser monthly, in hopes that the word will continue to spread and we get some help. So please, if you can't help, we totally understand but could you pass it along? Thank you for reading. Bless you. <3
