Disability Grant To Help Kidney Disease Disabled Beverly With Accessible Transportation
by Beverly Howell
(Geneva, Alabama, USA)
I'm a 63-year-old female with no family. It's just my dog and I. Though he is an animal he's a unique support system.

When I'm down or having one of my dreaded migraines he's there to keep me relaxed. I tend to isolate myself since I don't have family.Disability Issues
My physical challenges are severe and my kidney disease is a result of being inherited.
I'm currently on Disability due to a bad fall I took several years ago. A year ago I was placed on dialysis.
With drawing just over $750 a month it's hard to repair broken things around my house and find affordable transportation.
With only $29 in food stamps I have to buy cheap food. Some of it isn't conducive to being on dialysis but I make do.Income Efforts
With not being able to work due to the disability and dialysis I draw SSI and SSDI along with food stamps.
Watching my $$ close I don't get outside of my house much to attend functions other than Church.
I do visit local friends and stretch my $$ so that I can make my out-of-town doctor's appointments.Specific Needs
I seek a grant in order to have better transportation. At the moment my vehicle's being repaired. It's a 1998 Dodge Caravan minivan.
I'm hoping to get enough $$ to buy a better vehicle and have a little extra so that I can get out of my house to eat out a couple of times.Business Idea
I have an idea for improving an existing product but I don't want to submit it to patent companies due to them wanting $$ up front.
