In short, I started this fundraiser for myself to help with my growing medical expenses and declining financial stability overall.

This fundraiser will help me with my monthly medical bills and help me with any day to day expenses: $200/month for Medicine $75/month for Doctor's Visits (over $300 owed) $200/month for Gas to and from my appointments $300/month for Food. I have had five surgeries on my right knee. All of which were unsuccessful in repairing the damage done to my knee. After the last reconstructive surgery on my knee a severe infection of Streptococcus set in causing severe nerve damage. My right leg from the knee down is numb except when the nerves flare up with a severe painful burning sensation. Since that surgery the displacement of weight and inability to walk right or exercise, my right hip and lower back have also been severely injured causing the need for additional surgeries and possible years of physical therapies. None of which I can afford. I also recently got diagnosed with Diabetes and now have to start buying supplies for this as well. I do not know how much these expenses will be since I don't know how much they cost yet. Other funds for day to day things. I know this doesn't seem like a lot of money to most people, but, I am unable to work due to my disability. I have been fighting to get SSI/Disability and Medicaid services for over four years. Since starting my case I have lost everything. I am now homeless (living wherever someone will have me). I have lost my ability to work, drive, and do most everyday things that I took for granted when I was healthy. I desperately need help. Those who know me will know that I would never ask for help if I didn't need it. Thanks to everyone in advance for any help. I'll never be able to express how much it would mean to me.
