I haven't seen my mother since she had heart surgery 4 years ago . I turn 45 on March 1 and I missed her 70th birthday ON February 13th. I suffer with a rare illness that affects my central nervous system and my Peripheral Nervous system, thus it has bee difficult to earn a significant amount of money to go and visit her while on a limited income. I really would love to go and visit her. She resides in an assisted living facility in Washington and I live in Los Angeles. SO I want to be able to rent a hotel room while I am there visiting and also be able to go places with her, thus I am asking for help to get to Washington from California and help with staying there .I spent years in skid row and even some time on the streets and just reccentl with the help of Vijay Gupta and Street SYmphony a dream I had for 11 years was to sing Choruses from the Christmas Portion of Handels Messiah in skid row . On December 4, 2015 we did it. It was glorious. I have been an advocate in skid row for over 15 years annd have sacrificed much, but I I have wanted to, but now I am asking that I get help in going to see my mother. I want to see her. Her surger was a rare one. A aortic bypass and it is a miracle she is living . So I want to send time with her.
