My name is Kathy. I'm 55 years old. I have multiple health issues now, due to disease and injuries. I have been trying to manage my disability income to be able to buy enough good, nutritious food, but the rising cost of everything, limits what I can buy to eat a good balanced diet, which ,for me, is critical to my survival. Kidney disease and diabetes are life threatening illnesses, and I'm also suffering from severe arthritis, which leaves me unable to walk very well, without stopping to sit down frequently for relief of extreme pain. We only have one grocery store in town, and they keep raising their prices, especially since the A&P grocery store closed up. Being of a low income household, I've been forced to buy the cheapest foods I can buy, to stretch out for the 30 or 31 days that I need to eat, plus healthy snacks . Hot dogs and bologna, and similar lower cost foods aren't good for me, and they actually make me feel ill when I have to eat them too often because I'm low income. I also have a heart condition and the fat and salt in my diet can kill me. I've been trying very hard to make everything work out, but I need help from others. Please help with your donation. Any amount will be appreciated. Thank you.
