Disability Hampers Breathing

The Details:

I have worked all my life since the age of 14 and most of my jobs were working with fiberglass and other high VOC chemicals. Unfortunately, even with protective equipment, I developed multiple chemical sensitivities along with damage to my heart which has now compromised my breathing. I have also incurred several traumatic brain injuries.

At the age of 51, I find myself now unable to work, living on a limited disability income due to these chronic health conditions. I have a safe place to live but it is hard to escape from the chemicals that I am so reactive to which include auto exhaust, diesel, roofing tar, bleach and many cleaning products, etc.

To help my living situation, my doctor has prescribed that I live with a specialized air purification system that removes the toxic chemicals from the air in my apartment. On my limited income, I can't afford to purchase this piece of equipment. I appreciate your consideration of my request, which will change the quality of my living situation. Thank you so much for your help.
