Suz was diagnosed with a crippling auto-immune disease in 2011. She has fought very hard to live independently in Oregon but cannot get by on her Disability income any longer. She must start over in Denver and needs to move quickly to avoid eviction. More ...

Three years ago I was a marketing executive for a  Fortune 500 company. But I didn't feel good. When my health started to fail, I could no longer work. I thought I would get better... I didn’t get better. In fact I got worse and by January 2012 was unable to walk. After several hospitalizations and surgeries I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disease of the spine called Ankylosing Spondylitis. It is more common than MS, Cystic Fibrosis or Lou Gherig’s disease and will have a lifelong impact on my mobility and overall health. It has no cure. My spine is fusing into my pelvis and some days walking and motor movements are difficult. I'm single, never married, and am not able to live independently on Social Security Disability. I'm not able to work because of the disease and the powerful medications I must take to control pain.

After trying very hard, and with much support from an amazing friend network, I can't make it on my own any longer. This is the second home I am losing, to no real fault of my own...the City has gotten too expensive to keep going. But, my sister can take me in which is a blessing. She lives in Denver. In order to get me to Denver safely we need money for a small truck, a plane ticket for my sister, packing materials, gasoline for my handicapped van and ADA hotel rooms on the 20 hour drive.  Please help me get into a safe house where I can focus on my mental and physical health and get my sparkle back.

Suz has a private page on Facebook called Support Suz, can take paypal through and could really use some kindness during a hard time.
