Disability Grant Money To Help Double Amputee Pay His Bills And Buy Groceries
by Cedric Cross
(New York, NY, USA)
I am a single black male. I am 52 years old. I have no kids.
I have a mom who lives in Florida. I cannot afford to go visit her, but we keep in touch by phone.
I'm a double amputee and some of my fingers are missing.
I do struggle sometimes due to the fact that my artificial legs cause me pain. I am able to walk. So far I do not need a wheelchair.
I do receive SSD and it is not enough because my rent is high and I have to pay Con Edison.
This is killing me because once I pay my rent and the Con Ed bill and my cell phone bill I am out of money.
The reason I have a cell phone is because I am unable to afford a house phone.
I am using a neighbor's computer to write this story.
I receive HEAP but that is not enough for me to pay my Con Edison bill.
I am unable to seek employment because of my legs.
I did try to get money from my mom but she is on a fixed income.
I have no friends that I can borrow money from.
I tried certain agencies but they gave the run around.
I just want to get a free grant to help me catch up with my bills.
This would help me avoid struggling every month and being depressed.
I do not need aggravation in my life. I just need a simple grant.
