In 2010, Angie Mueller woke up in the middle of the night and was unable to use the lower half of her left leg. After numerous doctor appointments and six months of physical therapy to learn to walk again, she was diagnosed with a virus which would later impact a host of other health conditions to come. The cause of this virus was due to unseen black mold exposure in water damage at her home.  Angie continued to amass other ailments and conditions over the next 12 years, leading her to lose her job, move in with her mom, and file for disability benefits. Some of the other health conditions Angie has been diagnosed with, and continues to battle today, are Sjogren’s Syndrome, Degenerated Disc Disease, Fibromyalgia and Neuropathy.

Fast forward to 2022, Angie learned that she has a torn meniscus and arthritis in her knee causing excess pain and requiring a full left knee replacement scheduled for October. Shortly after this diagnosis, a recent bout with Covid  has made it even more difficult to battle her other health conditions and autoimmune disorder. Her chronic pain has made day to day functioning very difficult.

Since Covid, Angie’s health conditions have worsened, and she has been left with an arthritic virus in her shoulders, wrists, and hands for the past few months. Angie’s long battle with all her health conditions, and now pending knee replacement and viral Rheumatoid Arthritis, have created a financial burden.

Angie has been making handmade items to help supplement her income, but this has been difficult to manage with her chronic pain. Without being able to provide an income to pay for the upcoming and already accrued bills is causing financial stress. Donation funds will be used to pay for medical bills and lost income. Donations to this online fundraiser will be boosted 20% by Lend A Hand Up to make your gift go further. Cash/check can be paid directly to the Angie Mueller Benefit Fund and dropped at a Bell Bank location.

    It’s been another painful and discouraging morning. The rheumatic virus I’ve been fighting keeps on throwing harder jabs than my body can currently handle. After starting in my shoulders, wrists and hands. It has spread into my neck, upper spine, hips and the back of my thighs. This makes getting out of bed look like my own version of break dancing (I’m hopefully not breaking anything)! Walking or even everyday, easy movements and motions have become so difficult and just plain hurt to do!!!
    After being on Prednisone for 6 weeks with no beneficial results, I am trying Celebrex for 7 days. I only have 2 days left. If this doesn’t kick the virus in the butt, my doctors are considering postponing my knee replacement surgery, as not to cause infection.
