THE STORY:

Hello everyone. I hope you are all safe and healthy. This has been a bad year for me health wise and I'm starting this fundraiser to cover our transportation costs for one year due to illness that resulted job loss when my FMLA days were up, but I wasn't better and my company needed to fill my position. I was hospitalized six times this year alone treating the same illness, so my husband, Brian was missing time from work also. In addition to my illness that began last November and lasted until this June, I developed a concurrent Seizure disorder this year. While I was driving, I had seizures behind the wheel on two occasions and rear ended two cars, and paid two $1000 deductibles. I did $15,000 in damages both times so the car is now up side down but still has a payment and I cannot drive again until December provided I don't have another seizure before then. Our car insurance premium tripled and I'm not even on it. To add me adds $250 to the monthly payment. Given my newfound seizure disorder, Brian went out and leased a Nissan Rogue because it has adaptive safety features like crash avoidance, it will self brake and prevent me rear ending the driver or object ahead of me all while beeping at me and flashing safety lights and sounds to pay attention. Also, lights warn me of cars in the lanes next to me so I can pass safely. Because my conditions are considered a disability and the vehicle was selected with the intention of providing a disabled person the independence to drive with confidence. Between the two car payments, the inflated car insurance premium and Uber to get around to my appointments when Brian is working costs us about a $1000 a month and our lenders will not negotiate with us at all even though we have told them that we are trying to survive on one salary in the house now that my unemployment ran out. I have been looking for work all day long everyday since May. I am still looking and taking continuing educational courses online to update my resume during this time for professional development. If there is anyway that you could make a donation towards our fundraiser, we would be very appreciative. We are trying not to let my illness destroy our life twice. With much love, Juanita
