Hello my name is James A. Hanbury. I have building and climbing cell phone towers for the last 20 years. I am a hard worker and try to work harder than anyone i work with its just the way i was raised. I turn 49 in less than 2 weeks and got a hernia last year and the company i worked for didn’t offer insurance so i tried to work through it, but it went from bad to worse. I had to quit cause i could no longer climb cell towers or lift anything heavy. I am a big guy at 6 ft 5 and used to weigh 280 lbs. I have lost weight due to hernia and it hurting so bad when i eat and i am down to 230 lbs.
I have lost my home due to not being able to work and have moved in with my aunt and uncle. My uncle is on disability due to being hit by a train when he was 19 and sustained heavy brain damage. My aunt is old and on SS it being her only source of income. I have been helping take care of them for them letting me stay with them. I have never needed help like this before in my life and it pains me to ask help for money but i have no where else to turn to and i am at my wits end with this.
I know pride is a sin and i have been humbled and have had to swallow mine due to this hole i have gotten into due to this hernia. Anything you could help me out with would truly be appreciated more than you know. If i could just get this hernia operation and be able to work again i could dig myself out of this hole. I truly have never been down like this and i truly am at a loss and this seems to be my last hope of getting better. I know there are a lot of good people out there and i hope and pray i can put this behind me as soon as possible an move on with my life.
Thank you for your time and consideration and God bless!!!
