I need funds to enable me to take nutrition classes that will assist me with dealing with a medical condition called Transverse Myelitis.
This includes taking nutritional classes that will educate me in the proper foods, portion control, and preparation of food items that will assist in maintaining my health as I battle this condition. This also includes purchasing food items that will help regulate my health.
Meeting this need will help me because it will provide me with the funds needed to accomplish getting the nutritional classes and food items. I am current unemployed and funds are limited at this time.
My goal is to get back to work without having the issues associated with my condition, such as, the pain, numbness, and fatigue. This way I can focus better and not have to miss days of work because of this condition.
My current situation causes numbness, tingling, and total loss of feeling in the upper thighs, legs, ankles and feet with radiating pain and twitching in these placed. This condition also cause lower back pain
Right now, my biggest challenge is the constant pain and fatigue that is associated with this condition. If I sit, stand, or lie down for extended periods of time, I become stiff and cannot move.

I have known Ruth for over 30 years. I met her as a little girl singing in the church choir. I think meeting this need is important because she has a condition that cause her to be less mobile. This will move the recipient's life forward by helping her to lose weight and help her condition. She is a good person and a single mother with a daughter and this will help to empower the daughter to keep her mother healthy.
