I am humbly asking for your help to thrive and lessen my pain. The dearest people are helping and it gives me strength & hope.

I am a widow on Social Security and have a degenerative spinal and joint condition. Several years ago my surgeon (I've had 5 spinal surgeries in 7 years and may be looking at another one before long) felt it was important for me to have a full size adjustable bed. It also means a new lift chair after sleeping in it all these years. Social Security is my only source of income and it doesn't allow any money left over each month to even start saving. So I am counting on the kindness of strangers who will understand my need.
You can imagine what it must be like to no longer enjoy any of my activities I am passionate about (gardening, cooking, farming or work), to live in more pain each year, and the thought of a good night's sleep seems like nothing but a dream. But people like you can help make dreams come true and I am a firm believer in giving forward in life.
I feel rather desparate and discouraged at this point, but thanks to two dear nieces and their friends,I will not lose all my faith in the thought that life's blessings often come from the most unusual places.
I would like to give 8-10 Willow Tree Angels by Demdaco to the 8-10 donating angels who are leading in my fundraiser or one per person who would like to claim it. They are lovely, inspiring, and so meaningful.
