Hello,
I am looking for grants for either Lupus, RA, Fibromyalgia, or chronic back pain.
I have had two cancer scares and a death in the immediate family, my father passed before Christmas. My L5S1 is moderately degenerating with sciatica (I am taking Morphine Patches to help with pain) either from RA or Lupus. Now, I am having blood in my urine followed by other symptoms. I am having several tests at first the Dr thought Bladder Cancer then Lymphomia. I can send all doctors reports, CT scans, Urologist report etc...

I really need your help with a grant application for medical bills and any other grants that you know of for Autoimmune disease, back problems, RA, Lupus, Fibromyalgia and Depression. Right now I am having problems getting housework and cooking done. The pain and fatigue are so extreme! I do not have anyone to help with my twins, one of whom is Autistic, and am now being audited by the IRS for $19,000. I am really struggling to keep it together.
Thank you very much for your help & please keep me in your prayers!
If you know of any groups that offer grants please let me know as well.

I am looking for GRANTS TO HELP PAY MEDICAL DEBT. Also my 2 daughters and myself are Bi-polar and considered disabled. I was looking for an advocate of some type to help me with Dr. Appointments and keeping track of them all. I wanted info on GRANTS FOR GAS. I have a car but need help with fuel costs.
Last, my family is just working on getting over a VERY difficult time financially! We have had to dismiss a BANKRUPTCY because we COULD NOT AFFORD THE PAYMENTS!!!! We are at a loss as to what our options are? Our home is in foreclosure our CREDIT IS DESTROYED and our bills are unmanageable (utilities etc.) because for the past years of hardship. We are trying to get back on our feet but feel quite hopeless about how to do this? I am unable to work due to my DISABILITY and I receive Social Security however I also owe $$$ on Student Loans and although the FEDERAL SOCIAL SECURITY AGENCY AND MY DOCTOR say I'm PERMANENTLY DISABLED and can NO LONGER WORK.....The FEDERAL Department Of Higher Education APPARENTLY KNOWS BETTER....THEY SAID I AM NOT DISABLED and Must pay for my loans even though I NO LONGER WORK, and have now begun to GARNISH the SMALL MONEY AMOUNT I RECEIVE MONTHLY FROM SS!!!!!!
And lastly, due to my illness and the necessary MEDICATIONS I have to take, I am losing all of my teeth and am in terrible pain. I have been told repeatedly that I CAN ONLY HAVE TEETH PULLED BUT NO TEETH PAID FOR TO PLACE THE TEETH. I am only 43 years old and CAN NOT ALLOW MYSELF TO WALK AROUND TOOTHLESS!!!! Because of this I have begun to crazy glue teeth I have created myself into my mouth out of desperation and shame. I am looking for ANY info on GRANTS that you feel may help my family and I as we really are not in the position to re-pay anything due to the all to deep hole we are in because of past medical conditions of myself and my husband (2 Heart Attacks, 3 Major Back surgeries) in which my career ended and my husband was out of work healing for long periods of time. Our situation and ALL of our hardships were all medically related and simply devastating to our livelihood!!!! We are at a complete loss as to how to make it all better? We are SOO tired of living in fear! I DON'T WANT TO BE SCARED ANY MORE & I'm praying that perhaps Private Grants will be the answer to
Those prayers. My husband is back at work and so I do not think that we would qualify for most low income programs out there (we did not for LIHEAP, although I thought we did from the number's I was given) however we were denied. I by no means, mean to give the impression we are well off, we are still trying to get by, there is just a steady paycheck coming in every 2 weeks helping us now to do that, but we still FALL WELL BELOW THE $100,000 year mark for a family of 5, plus my nephew who recently came to live with us due to his own hardship with his parents!
Any info you can give would be SO GREATLY APPRECIATED...IT WILL BE A LIFE SAVER, or in this case a FAMILY SAVER!!!!! And maybe like I mentioned earlier, some type of an ADVOCATE who could possibly help me though the process!! As part of my treatment for my severe Bi-polar, I was given ETC (Electro Convulsive Therapy...Yes They Still Do That!!! LOL) it did help to save my life and I’m grateful it worked, however there was a price. I underwent ECT for quite some time and as a result my memory has been damaged. NO SHORT TERM MEMORY as well as my MEMORY IN GENERAL is good for nothing, hence the need for ADVOCATE to help with APPOINTMENTS. Takes forever for me to get them made and then I ALMOST ALWAYS SCREW THEM UP AND MISS THEM OR ARE TOO LATE AND HAVE TO RESCHEDULE THEM!!!!! Truth be told, I have even been kicked out of several offices because of this issue. My family and I are in desperate need of help. We are tired, and sick, and broke, and VERY OVERWHELMED !!!! Thank You SO MUCH for any info you can provide. Look forward to hearing back from you, and THANK YOU again!!!

I am begging anyone and everyone who will listen to me for a grant. I am sick; always in pain. I can't afford to go to doctor visits or even get my vehicle street legal. Some days I don't eat or shower.
I am living in my vehicle and have no one to turn to. I'm struggling due to this sickness. I need a grant like I never have before in my life and all I'm asking for is a little help from anyone so I can get back on my feet. Please help me. I cannot live like this anymore.

There are some grants to cover medical needs. But note these are just not "free money" that some people think of. Each program has criteria, income limits, and specific uses of the money. They are very hard to get, but they can help the sick. Or ask your doctor for tips as well. Here are details. http://www.needhelppayingbills.com/html ... bills.html

We need good help from one of your grants. We are going to have our power shut off on the 20th or 21st. We are having to move and may end up homeless and my finance is very I'll with congestive heart failure. Our car is broke down and needs some semi-minor repairs, desperately needs to get my son to all his doctors’ appointments. Please help us. God bless and thank you in advance.

We do not have grants or any funds. But try hardship grants. As both the government as well as non-profits may be able to help you.
