I’m a 37 year old man with a wife and three beautiful daughters (ages 11, 6, and 2). My family and I live in Mobile, AL and are in need of help.
In my life I’ve done everything right. I’ve never been in trouble with the law, I did very well in high school, and got a bachelors degree in chemical engineering in college. But after that, my life turned sour. I’ve had bad luck in every respect and then some. I’ve only been able to find odd jobs and couldn’t keep them because I usually worked myself out of the job. Then I had to take care of my father who had cancer until his death in 2017. Now, I’m disabled due to a genetic defect in my spine but I can’t get on disability. I can’t get disability because I don’t have Medicaid (insurance) so that I can have a doctor vouch for me. I can’t get Medicaid because I don’t have a job. I’m living inside a “Catch 22” and can’t find a way out. I make money by selling my plasma and pawning everything I own a piece at a time so that I can take care of my family. We are currently living in my mother’s old house which is falling apart and can’t seem to find a way out. I’ve put in for government assistance in every way I can find and keep getting denied. My wife can’t work due to a mental disorder, so she can’t help. My whole family is poor and most of them are making just enough to make ends meet, so I can’t ask them for help, but I have gotten to the point that I need to ask someone. I now own almost nothing, not even a car. We even had to give our cats away because we couldn’t feed them.
I know I have no right to ask for you to give to a complete stranger, but you could really change the lives of myself and my family without noticing. A donation of anything would be a blessing and could be the difference between having a life and just surviving. I’m a man that has given up “pride” in order to try and help my family. This is the reason I have posted to this site. Please help in anyway you can. No donation is to small.
