Hello, my name is Debbie and I am writing this letter to those who the LORD will use to help me fulfill my destiny. I went to a university in Georgia and graduated with 2 bachelor’s and a masters degree in accounting and information technology. I began my exciting career as an information technology auditor after graduation and my family especially my parents who were there to support me throughout my collegiate and professional career. However, my career came to a stop when I started to get seriously sick with an unknown illness that required medical investigation. In the process of investigating what was causing the debilitating symptoms I was experiencing I underwent an exploratory procedure that required general anesthesia. This procedure ultimately caused nerve damage to the left side of my body, which progressively lead to other health issues including complex regional pain syndrome on the entire left side of my body, seizures, gastroparesis, and severely reduced mobility that requires me to use a wheelchair to get around. On top of the nerve damage, I learned that the unknown illness that was being investigated was endometriosis. Therefore, I went into the hospital with 1 illness and came out with 2 leading to more.
I wanted to understand why this procedure resulted in me having nerve damage and to hold the hospital responsible for the life-altering situation that happened to me. So I went to several doctors that told me that I received too much anesthesia during the procedure, which was what lead to the nerve damage. I also got help from an attorney, but the attorney could not progress very far because the hospital destroyed the evidence of what happened to me in the procedure room, which was the evidence that proved that I received the incorrect amount of anesthesia. Ever since this procedure I have been experiencing physical, mental and financial hardships and disabilities because of the nerve damage and the other health issues it has led to, the mental anguish of watching my career that I worked so hard for falling too pieces and because the medical and living expenses has become so overwhelming since I had to quit working as a result of this situation. Also, my 72 old father and my 69 year old mother who I was supporting were also affected the same away, which adds so much guilt on me because they have been there for me. I promised my parents that I will always be there for them financially, but this situation caused me to break that promise.
It’s been almost 7 years now since this life-altering health journey began. I desire to become more physically and financially independent by:
living in a wheelchair accessible home that has room for me to use my motorized wheelchair
by being able to drive to my doctors appointments, the pharmacy and other appointments in my own wheelchair accessible vehicle that can allow me to lift and take my wheelchair with me and by female-owned, and
by operating my encouraging journal and stationary business that will include segments of my life-altering experience and how I am overcoming the negative aspects of it one day at a time. This journal and stationary business is one that serves to uplift others especially those who are going through hardship or who like myself whose life has been shattered and needs motivation to get the pieces of their life put back together again creating a new and better self.
I am looking for help to achieve my goal of obtaining an accessible home, an accessible vehicle and to provide a person like myself, a person with disabilities, with the opportunity to operate a business with a meaningful mission to encourage others through journaling and accompanying stationary items.
I have already created the design and written the content for the first journal set. Now I need help to get it produced. Some of the journals that I will be creating will be sold separately, but some of the journals that I will create such as the first one I have already created will be sold as a set, which include the journal, small serenity candles, a bookmark and 2 accompanying pens to create a peaceful atmosphere with the motivating convenience of the included pens and bookmark.
All journals and journal sets are created to help motivate and inspire the writer to release all what is on their heart in this sacred one-on-one journaling moment with God.
This first journal and other coming-soon journal sets will be available for purchase on my growing TikTok and YouTube channels that between both channels have over 1,000 followers since posting encouraging messages (some of which are included in the journals) for almost a year now.
My TikTok channel name is: @celestial.radianc
My YouTube channel name is:
Celestial Radiance FA
If possible, I will share in this campaign some pages of the first journal that is to be produced.
To produce the first journal set I need help with the cost, which are:
$10,060 The cost to manufacture and ship 600 journals sets
$5,000 Candles from local small business including supplies and labor
God will bless all of those who are willing to help me to become more physically independent and to help me establish my business. I thank you in advance. Your act of kindness will not go unrewarded.
