UPDATE:

Y'all ain't gonna believe this:

Currently, y'all have raised over a THOUSAND DOLLARS for Leola Kinchen's sake.

I am, without a doubt, beyond amazed, beyond stunned.I am just so... grateful.

And I can't wait to see the expression on Lee's face when she sees the bank account and knows that there really is some hope for her, that the crappy excuse for a state hospital system in Louisiana is not the end-all, be-all authority on what's to be her future.

Even though it'd be impossible these days, with the spyware and the scumbags out there, I'd still like to trumpet every single name of you wonderful people from the highest peak, to let the world know that this country is still made up of the most giving, kind-hearted, purely GOOD people on this planet.

Everything that y'all have done is a slap in the face of people like Jack Abramoff and George Allen, Biggus Dickus and Dumbya, who embody the class warfare that keeps a Leola Kinchen from getting the help that she deserves.

Thank you. Thank you all. You have not only helped to save Lee's life, you have changed my life and renewed my faith in humanity (what little there was). I am humbled by your true hearts, if that's not too sappy to believe.

AND KEEP PASSING A GOOD WORD!!!

Updated UPDATE: Now also appearing at BlondeSense!

Anntichrist,

I've donated and I have a draft post written up on this.

I just wanted to clarify without having to read the whole blog: what I understood from the Blondsense post is she can't get help (Medicaid, etc.) because she works? If I'm misunderstanding, kindly set me straight.

A single human life is a precious thing. Those who "govern" us tend to forget that.

I'm no good at linking, especially now that I've switched to
Beta. But I have blogged for Lee, here: http://bittysbackporch.blogspot.com/2006/11/help-lee.html

Probably she has exhausted all avenues, but I did find this phone # from the neurofibromatosis Mid-Atlantic site to find a lawyer in one's area if turned down for SSI,etc

Social Security Benefits Denied 1-800-431-2804 to locate an attorney in your state

I also posted a message on the bulletin board at NF, Inc. asking the posters there to check out StevenD's diary on Daily Kos, and the link to Blogging For Lee. Maybe someone in that community can come up with contacts/resources/ideas to help her.

I hope this is some help.
