Daughter Seeks Financial Help For Lupus Disabled Mother Debt Relief For Father

I am writing you in reference to my mother. She has been suffering from lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and fibromyalgia, for the last 15 years.

Each year it gets worse and worse. Her lupus has gone into her liver causing severe damage to it.

She had to have a stint put in to divert pressure, which was causing viruses in her throat and stomach.

She has been hospitalized several times for internal bleeding and had to have several transfusions, operations and procedures to stop the bleeding.

She has to take a multitude of medications just to clean the ammonia from her body, which becomes toxic if not monitored very closely.

She is close to needing a liver transplant and things are just getting worse.

She has been having problems with her kidneys because of the lupus and the medications she has to take to get rid of the fluid build up because of the liver.

Now she goes in and out renal failure.

She also needs a knee replacement, which they are not able to do because of her bleeding problems. So just everyday movement is extremely painful.

All of these problems are compounded because my father is the only provider and because of all my mom's health problems he has had to miss work.

On top of that, his hours have been cut back to as little as two days a week. So all the bills are piling up: the medical bills, the credit cards, the utilities, groceries, you name it.

They are good honest people who have worked hard all their lives. They have given when they could and always are willing to help someone else. I am asking for help for my parents who desperately need it.

If there is anything anyone can do and or knows of anything that would help it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance and God bless.
