    I need help urgently because my son is, has severe copd , severe asthma, heart problems and chrons and colitis. I’m a senior who has spent her savings keeping him alive and a roof over his head and food. I’m in a lot of debt and I have no savings for my senior years and I’m a 70 year old widow. Please let me know if I can get a grant or some monetary help. My son is 50 yrs. of age.

    To prepare for Direct Funding, I read through all the manuals available. Any questions I may have had after reading were answered by people at my Independent Living Resource Centre, who were very helpful.

    The DF waiting list does not appear to take into account people living with time limited termiñal disabilities such as AĹS.
