my name is Alison and I am here to express my concern and to ask for a little help to raise some money for my mum. Her name is Marina and she is an unbelievably giving person. Sadly, she born with a rare disease called Angiodysplasia, being not yet fully recognize in Italy, little fund has been put into researches, and for the fact that this illness affect people in many different ways and all so different, there is yet no cure, but just some treatments to ease the pain. It is not a mortal disease, but it can really affect your life. The main problem for my mum is about her vessels, which keep on getting stucked and which cause acute and sistematic pains to the legs and knees, also the cartilage between the spines bones does not almost exist anymore, another source of great pains and suffering. My mum is a strong woman, she is an activist for animal wellfare, she wakes up everyday and pretend that she is fine, she always told me that if one day she would allow her self to not get out of bed, that day would be the last day she ever does get out of bed. I admire her a lot, living with chronic pains is something I cannot even immagine, it must be a torture that no one understand since they see you behaving normally, therefor they undermine your sufference. Lately she had to take the decision to work less hours, since her body doens't let her anymore do that much, she work as a cashier in a local supermarket, a job she hates, but that she has to do since it's so hard to find a job in Italy, even more for people with disabilities, which are constantly discriminated. I love my mum, and I am so proud of her, she loves animal and she brought that love so far, hosting abbandoned, old, ill, deformed pets, she like the idea that she is giving them another chance. For once I want her to get another chance, a chance not to have to worry sick every month wondering how she would pay the bills, I want her to go out once to have a pizza with her friends, because she deserve it, I want her to be able to have a little saving aside, for when things turn bad. I want her to be happy and I really hope that my call would not be ignored. Please, you people, help me make my mum happy that she could take a breath for once, she so deserve it.
