My name is Shonda and I was in a near fatal car accident in 2001, which changed everything for me. I now live with a serious medical condition, being dependent on life support and paralyzed from the neck down as a result and I require 24/7 nursing care, which drastically effects every aspect of my life. This means I cannot be left alone for any extended amount of time, which brings me here.
As of late, I have not been able to secure the staffing I need with the nursing shortage as it stands throughout the state despite how many fliers have been hung and agencies been called. Most notably, this has left my soul caregiver and provider, (being my spouse) unable to return to work until the gaps can be filled, which has created a great financial need to say the least when it comes to fulfilling the necessary bills and living/medical expenses beyond what my monthly benefits alone have been able to cover.
All proceeds go to supporting my biggest needs and securing my livelihood.
