Disabled Veteran Needs Car Repair To Access Life Saving Dialysis

The Details:

I am a fifty-eight-year-old female veteran with disabilities. My son, who is 29 years old and is also disabled has come home to help me with some chores since my surgery in February. In my town, there is no public transportation and I need to make frequent trips to the VA clinic. Recently I needed to replace my vehicle and purchased a used truck. Unfortunately, it needs repairs before it can be driven.

I do not have any funds to buy the exhaust system for the truck. Without transportation, I am unable to get to my many appointments. I will be on dialysis and my life will depend on my transportation. I have no family or friends, although I belong to a church, no one has been willing to help.

Your donations will allow me to keep going. I am a fighter. I was a volunteer legislative advocate in California. I fought for issues that relates to health. Since moving to Louisiana, I have seen how horrible Veterans are treated when they do not understand their rights. Instead of giving up, I am pursuing my Masters degree in Public health and plan to open a consulting business to consult with veterans and civilians about health plans and appropriate healthcare. Your help to keep me healthy will allow me to continue my work of giving back to my community. Thank you for your generosity.
