Illness prevents me from helping my family
Organized by: Danyohl Khanyahl
My name's is Dan; I'm a married with six children, all of whom are teenagers except for our two year old. I have try to manage my illnesses over the years, so I stayed active until last year. I have been on disability since April 2015. Before short term disability ended I filed for permanent disability. My condition is very debilitating, sometimes I can hardly walk. My left side of my body is constantly weaker than the right. I am a person who full of pride so I don't like to ask for help. But I am in no condition to help myself. I can't work, I tried to develop a business myself, but my body just does permit me to be too active. I am far from lazy. I have a great work ethic. I even was the first in my family to graduate from collegs, at the age of 38. I have a son whose graduated from high school and wants to go school. I will have two more kids graduating back to back. All of my kids live with me, except one who I share joint custody, but they all go to school together; with the exception of my toddler. At this point, I am desperate. If I don't come up with some financial assistance soon, my family will lose their home. We only rent and our lease is month to month. If we're late, our landlord is going to ask us to move. The only income we have is my wife's, but with 6 kids, all she can afford is food. I don't know what I'm going to do. I want to do more but my body just doesn't permit. I'm in a serious predicamentmoI need you help.
