Accident Disabled Man Seeks Government Grant Money To Reestablish Himself

by Lester
(Rockland, ME, USA)

I'm a 39-year-old accident-disabled man with a 22-month-old baby girl and I live in an unfinished house.

Government grant money to reestablish myself would be such a blessing considering how disabled I am due to the many injuries I've had.


In 1997, I was the passenger in a car accident and suffered numerous broken bones: three lower lumbar vertebrae, my pelvis in two places, both ankles and my right lower leg.

As well, I have injuries from childhood. I fell out of a tree and hurt my wrists. I wrecked my bike and broke my left arm in the shoulder socket.

I can't sit, stand, walk, or lie down for any significant amount of time.

I'm always tired and can't focus on anything but the pain and discomfort. It has been a struggle for 12 years to enjoy any kind life. Please consider me for your help.

I have ideas on how to make a life for my daughter and me, but I have no money to get started. Some government grant money to reestablish myself would really help.
