As I lay in bed at night , I toss & I turn, From my, Hopes , Fears, And of course, The what If's !!!Although I may survive on Faith, Because Even when my mother was Alive, I never gave up on hope, The hope that she would just get better one day, Even though deep down inside I knew the reality of it.When my mother was first Diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, My Dream became a Cure.... So I was able to establish a non-profit 501(c) 3 organization to raise money to help fund research, However shortly there after My mother became paralyzed , Dependant on a ventilator (life-Support) , G-tub (Feeding tube ) , And also required many other machines to allow her to continue to live . At which point I had refused to allow her to sit in a nursing home, So I dedicated every minute of every day to care for her at home without help .We did'nt have much money but the strength of love that we shared was something that money could of never bought.She passed away on Dec 11th in 2007 ....4 weeks later.........My Daughter was born .... Unfortunately the pregnancy was nearly fatal for me , As it left me in need of a Heart transplant .... 3 months after that I was given a life expectancy of less than 3 months as the doctor explained if I were lucky my heart would last me 3 months.Well I certainly must consider myself lucky because it has been almost 2 years since...Since I have been placed on the pre transplant list until my medicare & SSI are approved But that is a 12- 18 month process.Although each day has become a struggle as I fight to stay Alive , But I cannot allow myself to give up , For the sake of my 2yr old son who has alot of Autistic like Behaviors, & my 2yr old Daughter.Because of my Heart I am on a NO SALT X-TRA LOW SODIUM manditory Diet which means I can never eat fast food again.My point is , That my condition has put me in a financial Crisis , and not only am I about to be homeless (I would be Forced to survive on fast food) but I have no reliable transportation, So I have to take the bus every week for 2 hours .....1 way .......... to each doctor visit.The truth of the matter is that I do believe that if I become homeless It will be fatal for me. As the thought of that alone just hurts my heart, AsNow my dream has become......To stay alive & keep a roof over our head.As difficult as it would be to find words that could express my emotions, I have found a simulairity as I seek a solution that will help to shed some light to shine on the above mentioned situation , The reason I am writing this is because I have seen many of the kind actions that on many occasions , That you have done to help people throughout the communty, So I thought that maybe I should inform you of my situation , In hopes that maybe you can provide me with some resources that may be available, Even though I need a Miracle ,.Thank you in Advance for reading my letter Because without people like you in this world there would be no Hope
