THE STORY:

Hi my name is Kevin I am a father of six daughters and two sons my three oldest daughters and my two sons have started families of their own they tried to help but they have their own struggles but for the past 12 years I have been raising my daughters by myself my oldest daughter that still lives at home with me she is 13 her name is Sara she's a big help around the house she is definitely taking on more responsibility than a 13-year-old girl should then my other daughter her name is Emily she just turned 12 she's also a big help to she is my mini me she's very busy she does cheerleading at her school and Talawanda and then there's my baby Lillian she is seven years old but she think she's 27 she is very funny and she's a big help around the house too but I don't think she realizes she makes more of a mess and she cleans up that's just a little bit about my family I love them dearly now a little about me I'm 47 years old I've never taken drugs I've never smoked cigarettes and I don't drink I have always worked hard in my life I've done tree work and operated heavy equipment and I've done lawn care and landscaping very hard work when I turn 35 I had my first heart attack they said it was due to plaque and they put a stent in my heart I had 100% blockage I was very eager to get back to work as soon as they fixed me when I was 40 years old the day my seven-year-old daughter was born I had a heart attack and they put a stent in at that time I had 100% blockage I was very eager to get back to work after that happened and then October 2014 I had a massive stroke plaque had broke loose and one of my arteries and went to my brain I was in ICU for 28 days they told my family I wouldn't live but I came around I was completely paralyzed on my left side and the right side of my face I went to Drake rehabilitation center where I had to learn how to walk and talk how to use my left arm I had to learn how to eat and take care of myself I spent our savings trying to take care of the bills without being able to work but we ended up losing everything anyway I started receiving disability and it barely paid the bills but I was thankful that there was something and we also received food stamps I ended up buying a mobile home I made myself strong enough to where I could cut grass again on a riding mower and make a little bit of money so I wasn't so dependent on the government and then July 2 of 2016 I had a heat stroke it was very hot that day when I got to the hospital they said that I had already had a heart attack probably about two weeks prior I was at Fort Hamilton Hospital they ran test on my heart and said it was too bad for them to fix so they transferred me to Christ Hospital where they did open heart surgery on me they said my heart was very bad I had ulcerated plaque The bottom half of my heart did not work and it wasn't beating in rhythm so they had to take the heart out of my chest and rebuild it I was in the hospital for a little over a month my lungs kept filling up with fluid and they would have to tap I lungs to drain them i'm home and taking care of my kids again but October 1 of 2016 disability said that I'm able to go back to work and they've cut me off so now I have no income I am a very prideful man so asking for help is not my best trait but when it comes to my daughters I have to put my pride aside and ask you if you will help me My family and myself appreciate anything that you're able to do thank you and God bless you
