I Need Help Affording a Medical Lift Chair After Surviving COVID!

My Story:

I'm a mother and the widow of a veteran. My husband was an amazing man, and we miss him dearly. We had five children together, and our five children gave us ten grandchildren! All of them make me so proud to be a mother and a grandmother. I'm especially grateful for my oldest daughter who stopped work to take care of me when I couldn't take care of myself. I was unable to take care of myself because I was recently hospitalized after contracting Covid-19.

I'm blessed and thankful to be alive, but the symptoms have left me severely debilitated, and I can no longer walk without assistance from my daughter. I live paycheck to paycheck and after taking care of all of my bills for the month, I have very little left over to put into savings or into unexpected expenses. Right now, I'm dealing with a major unexpected expense in the form of a power lift chair that I need to have installed in my home. I need this chair because my daughter is unable to lift my full body weight when my legs give out from under me when I try to get up, and it's really becoming dangerous for both of us. I don't have the income to be able to afford this expense on my own, so I'm humbly asking for help with getting this power lift chair.

As an elderly woman, I feel helpless since I'm not able to pay this bill and since my mobility is so limited in my own home. My daughter is doing her best to help, but this situation isn't tenable for either of us for much longer. I'm worried that before too long one of us will get injured in the process of trying to help me. That being said, this help would prevent a dangerous accident and would also give me more mobility and freedom in my own home once again. I'm working hard to get better after having Covid-19 and this help would really be a huge step forward for me, and it would lighten my daughter's load significantly as well. I pray that I can return this kindness in full someday, and I want to thank everyone who helps me recover my independence for your kindness and generosity.
