Hello all and thank you for reading.
My name is Brooks and I’m 21 years old. I have one son who is 3. We do not live near each other and I want to change that. I initially moved away for a job that ended up going bad and I was out of work. I’ve been struggling trying to get back to him but I fell extremely ill. I’ve always had problems with arthritis and ulcers. But a few months ago they found a growth in my lung and a tumor on my brain. Work has become extremely hard. I can barely move or get out of bed most days because I’m pretty much stuck in whatever position I wake up in. I ended up leaving my job due to the bulling I was receiving from my managers. They would talk down to me and tell me I was useless or worthless due to my conditions and would order me to do things that my doctor (in writing) said not to be doing. I left because I couldn’t physically or mentally take it anymore. At the moment I am homeless and trying to get back to my son. My doctor is advising against that because with me being homeless and my conditions, I’m estimated to only live another year unless I can get off the street. Longer if I can afford the treatments. If I move back to where my son is, I’m estimated only to live another 6 months because I won’t have any medical help until after the period of being approved by medicaid, getting in with a doctor and them figuring out my method of treatment plus I will still be homeless. I’m so lost on what to do but I need to be with my son. My doctor had tried to help me get disability but they didn’t approve me. I’m on my last leg and have no one I can turn to as my family isn’t the greatest. I just need anything to help me until I can get everything sorted out here. I’d really like to live a little longer and get the treatment I need. Any donation would be much appreciated and would help in getting me to my son as well as medications and treatment and places to stay until I can get another job. Thank you all for taking the time to read this and thank you for all future help.
