THE STORY:

This is hard for me. I'm always one to help people in any way I can. And rarely ask for help. I'm Alyssa, I'm 22 years old. I have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome Hypermobility and vascular crossover, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, arthritis and a whole bunch more. Pretty much my soft tissue is like an old rubber band that stretches but doesn't break. And I'm always in pain. There is this new device called the NSS(nuro stim system) it's supposed to eliminate pain. It's an alternative to narcotic painkillers. It's a very expensive system, also because of how new it is my insurance doesn't cover it. It's about $1500-2000 depending on if my insurance will cover getting the device installed. I'll be driving to Salem from Sandy twice a week for three weeks. And I'm currently working on getting disability so I don't have an income. So I'm hoping to be able to afford not only for the device but for gas also. The device install is happening in early to mid July. i recently went on a 3 day fishing I then relized the things I could do the last couple summers I wasn't able to do. And I have a trip I would like to go on while I still can. Which is a ghost town tour around Oregon. Which I'm hoping to do in late August. If all goes well I am hoping to be pain free for the trip. The device and gas will come first. But anything over would be going to the trip. Thank you for your time, and donations. Alyssa ❤️❤️
