Hi its Melissa, as many of you know i have MS, and have seen me walking like I'm drunk. MS makes my life very hard. doing even things like going to the store can be very hard and scary.
I'm afraid every day I'm going to trip over seemly nothing and fall. I've fallen walking in my living room. and I've fallen walking to my car from my apartment. My youngest Gabby worries every time we go to the store that I'm going to fall. In addiction to fallen almost daily, I also have start to have bladder issue. When I go in a store the first thing I do is look around for a bathroom. A few time when I've fallen I've knock over Gabby when she trying to keep me from hitting the ground.
I do have a handicap parking pass which helps so what however I still find it hard to find an ok place to park. If I go to any place I have to check ahead of time to see what kind of walking area they have, For me a small step can be very hard to work around even with my cane.
I haven't been able to work to support my family since 2014. I would love to be able to get back to working and feeling good about supporting my family.
As many of you know, I was a landscaper at Dobbins Reserve Air Force Base for years and I loved my career. Now, I can't even go to Rock City or any of the botanical gardens and walk around. My dream is to be able to live like I used to again.
I've found a doctor who has a regenerative cell therapy treatment to help me, These treatments have helped many people with MS. I have a great deal of confidence in this doctor and I know he really cares about helping me.
It would be really nice to be able to live without fear of falling and to get back to work. However the treatment is not cover by my insurance and I can't afford it without help from friends and family. As much as I wish I didn't have to ask for help...I'm out of options and need to ask for help.
I hope that if you ever need help in the future that I can return your kindness.Donate Now
