Disability Grants For CP And Epilepsy Disabled Rebecca To Live Better Life
by Rebecca Cumbus
(Cordele, Georgia, USA)
I am 33-year-old female. I have a 14-year-old daughter. I'm a single parent. I am divorced. I live with my daughter in a trailer. We have one dog and a puppy.
I try to go out into the dating world but it is so hard with a protective teenager. She will question a man till he runs.
I was born with cerebral palsy and epilepsy. I have a service dog. My daughter has severe ADHD, asthma and heart trouble, with allergy issues.
My daughter has to go to a heart doctor every two years. She gets sick a lot and she is accident-prone. She has something broke or torn just about every week.
I try to stay on my feet and keep my house clean because I always say you never know what is going to happen in the middle of the night or during the day.
I can't work but I want to. It's just that nobody will hire me. I have to wait on people to take me places either my mother or the van.
It's hard to keep a steady relationship. My mom drives me wherever I need to go and drives my daughter to school. I have nine different medications I have to take.
I get a SSI check every month, which is about $721. I also get a TANF check every month, which is about $155.
I am a stay-at-home mother, which means I have no job.
I have not gotten any grants or donations though I have tried.
I want grants. I want them so they can help me achieve a better home life and give my daughter a house that she can be raised in.
I want to go to school and major in computer graphics. My daughter wants to go to John Hopkins University and be a brain surgeon.
I would also like to pay off a couple bills that have been rather high.
