My name is Jennifer, the beautiful boy in the picture is my child.  All I have ever wanted was for him to be happy and healthy.  I have a very serious medical condition that needs to be taken care of as soon as possible. I would like to make sure I am around for many more years for him.  I have a blockage in an artery and it's very severe.   I absolutely hate asking for help, and I am extremely uncomfortable in doing so.  But my son reminded me just today that it doesn't mean anything bad, it just means I need help and can't do it on my own.  It's unfortunate that he is aware of my health issues, 20 year olds should not have to worry about their Mom the way he is.  

I am so blessed that my child is such a good boy, I want to be around for many more years as he grows into the wonderful man I know he will be.  I want to be around for birthdays, Christmas, his wedding day, and be there on the day he gives me my first Grandchild. 

 I started my business a few years ago, and it's still in the building process.  I own a bakery and recently moved to another state so building it up is going slow.  With my health, I am finding it more difficult to focus on doing so, it is hard to keep going some days.  I do have another job also, but it's becoming harder also to maintain that.  

I am not insured, I looked into insurance and the affordable care act is not so affordable for me.  The cheapest rate I found was way more than I could afford monthly and there was still a deductible of $6350.  I exhausted all other possibilities, I have tried banks, finance companies and recently decided to just try payday loans, but they won't loan anything other than very small amounts and want to be paid back within a couple weeks or a month at the most.  Then the interest would kill me.  And I would need several of them to obtain the funds I need.  

I am so uncomfortable in asking for help, more than I could ever say.  But I am desperate at this point.  I need to get healthy.  I need to know I am doing everything I can to be around for my son as long as I can.  I want to turn all this around and get healthy.  This is why I am doing what I was advised to do, I am asking for help.  

I don't want to just ask for a donation, I would like to offer something in return, it would be in the form of a dessert from my bakery (once I am healthy), and it has to be something that could be shipped, like a pound cake, fudge or other candy.

So I am asking for your help, any donation no matter how small will be greatly appreciated and I will send you the dessert of your choice once things get back to normal.  

Thank you so much for anything  you can do.
