Liisa Lugus has been bedbound with extreme myalgic encephalomyelitis for 13 years and is losing her current home. She has nowhere to go and needs our help.
For more than a decade Liisa Lugus has been bedridden with an extreme case of myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME/CFS). As those of you that have experience with this disease know, the cost of paying for the medical expenses of an ME sufferer are astronomical. Left well under the poverty line by her annual pension of less than $5/hour, Liisa can hardly pay for food and shelter, never mind medication and hospital bills.
“Her functionality is similar to someone who has cancer and is weeks to days away from death, yet she survives, and is a beacon of inspiration despite her circumstances.”
Liisa’s supporters have launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise the minimum amount of money required to get her into a stable housing situation within the next few months and to find her long-term in-house care. Her elderly mother can no longer house and care for her and is in desperate need to find a suitable living situation for her daughter.
