I am holding this fundraiser to help cover the cost of a dream of mine that I would like to fulfill before my health becomes to bad for me to be able get around.
I have stage 3 COPD, Chronic Pancreatitis, Diabetes, Peripheral Neuropathy, Anemia, Condromylasia Patella, Fibromyalsia, G6PD blood deficiency, and several other debilitating health problems.
I am only 42 years old. Imagine if you wiIl, having 20 years of your life stolen by careless doctors, that caused you to have a life threatening illness that will never go away, and will only get worse, then imagine that illness causing you to have several others illnesses!
I lost my whole life at 18 years old, I been living a life of illness, and pain for so long I don't even remember what not being in pain feels like. The things everyone else does, like showering or cleaning the house take me ten times longer, and then cause me to be bedridden in pain for days after. My youngest son has never known me to be able to do all the things that moms are suppose to do with their children!
This fundraiser is to help me do something I have never been able to do!
I will have been with my partner for 20 years this April 1st. We have never been away over night, and for what will likely be the last anniversary we will celebrate, I would like to stay at a boutique hotel in Toronto called the Gladstone. I've always been a big fan of the old architecture of that building, and I was over joyed to see it restored.
Financially it is just not possible for us to do this on our own. With my medications, and other bills we have never had extra to put away to save for a trip. So I am coming to you, hoping that you can find it in your heart to donate even a small amount to go towards helping me celebrate one last anniversary.
Will you help make my final wish come true?
