About Me:

I am so happy with the service I receive from Artists Collective. However, sometimes it can be hard to afford medicine when you’re on SSI. I’m older and on a fixed income. When I buy food, I have no money for medicine. And when I buy medicine, I have no money for food. I have to go stand in line with hundreds of women and children at a food center truck. This makes me feel ashamed. It’s hard to believe that a stranger will donate money to help me afford my medical marijuana, but I would be very grateful for help if it comes. I will use the savings not to look so skinny!

Medical Condition:

Chronic pain, sleep apnea, high blood pressure, digestive problems, agoraphobia
