Stuff About Me:

Hi Friends,

Last year I sustained serious injuries as a result of a fall.  Due to those injuries, my 25 year career as an attorney, primarily serving those without financial means, came to an abrupt end.  I've spent months in physical therapy, with a long way to go.  I'll be moving into a one story, handicapped accessible apartment this summer.  Still unable to drive, I rely on the kindness of friends and taxi services to get where I need to go.

I now find myself in a financial bind, perhaps similar to many of those people I counseled over the years.

I am no longer able to pay my way.  I have no income; bills are collecting, and I can't meet my financial obligations.

While it is embarrassing to admit this publicly, I need financial assistance beyond that which my family can afford to provide.  Some very dear friends have already provided help, but now I must reach out to my larger commmuniy of friends.  The goal of $22,000.00 is designed to help underwrite my life for the next 18 months.  If you are curious about my budget or why I chose an 18 month time frame, please send me a message.  I will happily address any questions or concerns.

Anything you can provide will be gratefully appreciated.

Thank you all.

Adam
