May 28, 2016


I am personally raising funds for my family initially and then others in the same situation I recently have become disabled due to an illness which has left me visually impaired and hard-of-hearing I have the precursors of dementia and the high percentage of early fatality illness came on suddenly and unexpectedly I have not been able to work since my wife has been scrambling and working 3 jobs and by no means has been able to provide the type of income I used to bring and  I am 40 years old father of three step children have been married 19 years and have two grandchildren fortunately we had health insurance but they don't seem to want to cover anything always pointing the finger it's some other cause or source for liability yes they collect their premium every month and because of their lack of payment I am being denied by my health providers there are days I struggle to take out the trash I am not really one to ask for help and I'm the type of person that would give the shirt off my back to a stranger always been a hard worker generally working 18 hours a day I was always chasing the American dream thinking that money would solve everything meanwhile I was disconnected from my family chasing the dollar. I recently realized no one knows the real me i have had many adventures and me want to leave a legacy and have my energy live on even when I'm gone

i am embarrassed to not be able to stand on my own but i am a soldier and will carry on no matter what here is some of the story why i am apealing to the masses for a hand building the foundation to the wishing well

recently our utilities were disconnected leaving all the food to spoil and then they cut off our in desperation I stood outside our house with a giant sign stating help no utilities no water no food help for 4 hours many slowed to look nobody stopped not even the police i was so disappointed i live on a busy road with plenty of traffic i was wishing that someone would throw a quarter or even a penny i had tried for public assistance and was denied saying we made to much well my wife is only bringing home 1000$ a month ive tried disability six months in and still havent got decision. The united way operator just told me to be thankful and there are families of five homeless by the greyhound station

that day I lost hope in humanity I know there's others worse than myself but how can i help them when i am only. One degree from wearing their shoesi cannot produce income by any skillset i had aquired over the years but while i have blood in my veins and air in my lungs im going to use my words while my brain still ticks and feel that I can take this opportunity to tell my story Maybe to get a hand up then stand on my own and in return use my time to help others Empower others Inspire others to stand on their own sometimes even a smile can make a person's day Even a penny thrown in the wish you well could make a difference To all that read this I wish you well live your dreams love your family and throw a penny in the wishing well
