    I would love to win to give to our Son, Jesse, who SERIOUSLY NEEDS this!
    From the time Jesse was a baby, his asthma was so severe he was frequently hospitalized (they even tested him for Cystic Fibrosis due to how severely ill he was so often, thankfully he didn’t have that.)
    Also the specialists at Children’s Hospital in Detroit told me at that time he had the longest list of potentially FATAL allergies they had ever seen.
    Despite how careful I was and homeschooling him until middle school, he still ended up having numerous life threatening allergic reactions including Angio Edema and Anaplylactic Shock due to literally microscopic cross contamination or invisible allergens in the air!

    Jesse is 29 now and even though he is ill enough that he needs disabiity help..he is admiringly independent and his suffering has developed an EXCEPTIONAL empathy & compassion in him for others. He regularly goes above and beyond to help people every chance he can, including many total strangers and homeless people and people that other people have misunderstood or outcast.

    I love that this unit shows outdoor air quality too, because he can’t afford a car so has to walk or bike in all kinds of weather anywhere he goes and sometimes poor air quality makes that more difficult than other times.

    Jesse not only NEEDS this BADLY..(he could never afford such a thing.)…but when I see how much he sacrifices to help others it also makes me feel like he SOOOO DESERVES something amazing to happen to Help HIM too! Good Karma?

    Thank you to you and the sponsor for this incredibly generous opportunity. Grateful to even have a chance!ReplyCancel
