Girl In The Bubble
Please help save my healthy home
A lifetime of mysterious and serious illnesses was diagnosed in, December of 2012. I have a chronic medical condition called, Primary Immunodeficiency Disease. My body no longer produces enough of a certain immunoglobulin needed to fight bacteria and viruses. Because of this, I'm highly susceptible to meningitis and sepsis as well as everything else under the sun. I've baffled doctors all my life with rare illnesses that could not be explained, as well as continuous common ones.
My immune system has become so depleted that I'm unable to fight the bacteria which causes Meningitis. I contracted Bacterial Encephalitis Meningitis in October 2011 and Bacterial Meningitis again in November of 2012.
It is a true miracle that I'm alive today. Meningitis has left its mark and I will never be the same but, I'm not complaining.
There is no cure for Primary Immunodeficiency. It is caused by a defective gene. Each month, I receive an IVIG infusion of human plasma which gives me the immunoglobulin I need. The medicine is thousands of dollars each month. It's the only way to have a fighting immune system.
It is of significant importance that my living environment is free of contaminants as much as possible and that I'm hyper vigilant about cleanliness inside and outside my home.
For the first time in my life, I'm unemployable. That added to lenghty hospital stays, continuous doctor visits, tests and multiple medicines I've become bankrupt, and broke.
My small ranch home is a healthy home. It was purchased on a Land Contract which has ballooned and the balance of, $50,253.00 is due. I'm not a candidate for a mortgage at this time.
My eviction date: April 28, 2014.
At this time, I do not know where I will live. I've filed for disability due to several medical conditions and am waiting for their decision. I have no income except for help from friends when they can, and I've begun selling off my personal items.
I've worked my whole life and have been a contributing member of society. I've volunteered for several organizations throughout my life and have even founded, and organized fundraisers for those in need.
My home is the one place where I'm safe from harmful conditions. I hope you will help me reach my goal because I have no where left to turn. The only way for me to save my home is to pay the balance due by April 28, 2014. I must be out of my home by that date unless I have the money.
I believe this to be true:
"Whether you think you can, or you think you can't -- you're right."
I believe I can save my save home and protect my health. I pray that you will help me reach that goal.
Thank you so much for reading my story.
