This is probably the hardest thing I have ever had to do but my circumstances dictate that I must do something. I find myself in a horrible bind and short of panhandling on the street I thought I’d give this a try.
So here is my story, on February 16, 2010 I suffered a heart attack while shoveling snow in my driveway. This was truly a traumatic experience because my son and daughter were with me when this happened. As a result of the heart attack I was forced to take a leave of absence from my job. I thought I would be off for a short time but that is not what happened.
I had the angioplasty procedure and then developed an infection at the site of the procedure which required some additional surgery to drain the infected area. This required another stay in the hospital for three days in May, Which in turn required more time off from work. Then, In June i developed a problem with my blood pressure which required another stay in the hospital.
After that stay my company fired me saying that they could no longer hold my position. As if that wasn’t bad enough they then refused to give me any unemployment stating that I had quit, because I had failed to submit a form. I realize that it was my responsibility to submit the form but in my defense I was dealing with some serious health issue and it just slipped through the cracks.
I was still under doctor’s care but I did not prevail in the attempt to get any benefits. So I began to live off my savings and going to my cardiac rehab. Then in October just after being released from doctor’s care I suffered a mild stroke. Which left me not only physically down but mentally depressed I spent 27 days in the hospital and have exhausted all of my savings.
I have now lost my home and the engine in my car blew out. Fortunately I have been able to receive VA benefits for my health issues which has been a huge help. But now I find myself in need of funds to get back on my feet. I need $5,000.00 to get my car fixed and to tide me over while I look for a job. I now live in the basement of my mother home and am desperate to get back on my feet.
I have donated plasma in order to give my kids some sibilance of Christmas, but I need help to move forward. This so embracing but I am at the end of my rope and don’t know what else to do, so anything you could donate I would be ever so grateful.
