My story starts about 7 years ago my family was robbed from our home and we lost over $20,000. Now two years ago I found out I have brain tumors and lupus. Still living at home with the help of my parents, for medical expenses, and the problems I face everyday will these illnesses. I decided to further my career as an artist painting on canvas. I have always enjoyed creating art and I wanted o share it with the world. However this day and age getting your name out there can be difficult. Its hard enough when someone judges you based on how you look; but now I’m judged on my illnesses. Jobs will not hire me because I’m up front with them about my illnesses and the effects they have on me daily. I’m a hard worker creating my own website to try and sell my art as well as putting in my effort to create something unique every day. But, my illness, and medical bills are only adding up. My family tries to help me as much as they can with bills, but having an MRI every month among other doctors appointments is really putting a dent into the amount of money anyone has left. I try my hardest on all social media outlets to put my creations out there more for the world to see. But, I haven’t been able to make my big break yet. I hope on day I will be able to pay back my parents; not only for all of the money they have provided to be with all of my medical bills, but for their support, and patience while I work my way down the road to recovery. I ask for help from those who can with their donations. Without donors like you, I would be lost and not know where else to turn. Thank you for you support.
