Hello, I am Eileen Grace Taguinod, 28 years old and a lupus patient. I have been on flare since last year that really and drastically changed my life. I have been in and out of the hospital. Been in ICU for a month. Been in ventilator and NGT. I have been on dialysis as well.
The path i have been walking is not like walking in a path. I have underwent pericardial window to drain fluids from my heart. They have also drained fluids from both of my lungs. I have severe scars and poor blood circulation that they needed to amputate my partial feet, bilaterally.
This is my second life. I am still young. I am a bread winner. I want to gain my life back but I have no means already as we are already drained financially from my previous hospitalizations.
I want to get back on my feet, be able to work despite being a disabled. I know life is hard during this pandemic.
Any amount will suffice. If collated, will be for my medical treatments, healing and prosthesis.
