Hi. My name is Isabel and I am 19 years old struggling with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome and chronic fatigue syndrome. If you’re unfamiliar with these conditions, in short, I am unable to do normal physical activities without debilitating fatigue and passing out. I’m in treatment at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, but the fees are a huge burden on my family.
Due to covid, my family is in the worst place financially that we’ve been in since the recession. I have two younger sisters, one in high school and one in elementary. As the oldest daughter, I know I have a responsibility to take care of them and financially support my family, but my illnesses have made basic living a struggle. Thankfully, I am no longer in a wheelchair, but times are still difficult.
I’ve never posted to a website like this before. In fact, I never thought I would be asking anyone for financial assistance like this, but right now I cannot find another alternative. If you’ve read this far, thank you so much. Every dollar really helps me not just financially but emotionally and physically as well.
Praying that this works. God bless you.
