Ended Dec 6, 2013
I was diagnosed with polymyositis & interstitial lung disease in March 2012. I had a remission but now my lungs are failing & a lung biopsy is Friday 4/6. I'm a single mom, & we're scraping by on child support without SSDI.
I have polymyositis - an autoimmune disease of the muscles - and interstitial lung disease. I almost died in Oct 2011. I'm also a single mom to one amazing little boy. I've been appealing my SSDI denial for over a year while trying to make ends meet, but the ends never meet and it's snowballing.

Stress is a trigger for this disease and the further behind I fall, the more I stress out and I'm praying I don't have a flare that sends me back to the hospital. I've come so far since that picture was taken - I've re-learned how to walk twice already. I don't want to go back to that.

Even if you can't or don't want to donate, please share this. I appreciate every little bit of help.
