Help the Smith Family in their time of need!!
Organized by: Matthew Smith
My name is Matthew but you can call me Matt. Recently I was placed on indefinite suspension pending future market growth in oil and gas. So now I'm working as a driver with uber but it's not even close to what I used to make. About 2 years ago I had my father move in with me to not only save money but also to take care of him while he goes through different cancer treatments among other treatments for a myriad of other problems he is going through. Treatment seems to be going well but the more that's fixed, the more problems were finding. Though we are saving money on this economy one bedroom studio, it's affecting both our health and somewhat our sanity. I'm now diagnosed with depression and possibly a sleep disorder. Our goal was to move out into a 2bd apartment but that's not longer going to happen unless we can get help with the medical expenses and get out of this hole. My father was always the man I could count on in life to give me advise, teach me about cars, firearms and fishing, and he was always there for me when I needed him most. Now my father needs me like that and I feel like I'm dropping the ball. My father is a retired sergeant from Texas dps (States Highway Patrol) has worked with narco and ice agencies along with the Texas Rangers. He helped law enforcement at the Waco with David koresh and supported his dad, my grandfather who was instrumental in the establishment and creation of the Shriners children's burn hospital at UTMB in galveston which became the nation's leading burn ward. After all this love, the sacrifice they all made me and my sister, all the Strife that we have prevailed through, this one is the toughest and I don't see how to make it through without some outside help. If my mother were still aroundon't, she could probably come up with something or at least know what to do. Sadly we lost her in October 08 to diabetes after multiple heart attacks took her from this world. Please help us out. Anything will help. I don't know many people and don't really use Facebook. Get the word out, donate as little as a dollar. I will post updates as I can. Gbwu. Matt
