Hi, my name is Lauras. I have a genetic disease called muscular dystrophy which causes the affected me to lose muscle mass resulting in the inability to use my hands and legs. At this time, my symptoms are very visual; I can’t walk up the stairs and sometimes I fall and can't get up without assistance. Everyday I experience trouble moving my arms, walking on my own and taking small steps (10-20 meters). I utilize a cane to help get around.
Because of the progressive muscle loss, I know I will need a wheelchair soon to assist with daily activities. I currently live in an apartment which is not constructed to assist with my disease. For example, the steps do not have handrails and the doors are too narrow for me to get through. Due to the apartment complex layout, I will not be able to leave my home soon. I am planning to live in a country house where the required equipment for my sickness will be installed. Right now I am fixing the house, but I have a little problem. The roof has a hole in it which causes water damage to the house when it rains. Contractors advised me that the house will require a new roof which may cost around 10,000 euros. Thank you to everyone who will donate money for my new roof. Your kindness and thoughtfulness does not go unnoticed.
