Disability Grant To Help Cancer Disabled Baseball Fan With Home Payments
by Dale Slater
(Willard, Ohio, USA)
I am a 40-year-old father of three and a grandfather.
I am an ex-college baseball pitcher and former professional draft pick (KC Royals).
I currently mentor a few kids a couple times a week with bettering their baseball skills.
In 2007 I started investing in multi-family real estate. Due to divorce and sickness I no longer have the properties.
Besides my children I have two passions, baseball and real estate.
In February of 2011 I was diagnosed with Stage 4 testicular cancer. I was covered with tumors from my left testicle all the way to a four cm brain tumor.
I underwent chemotherapy for five months and had multiple surgeries, which included removal of my left testicle and removal of a baseball sized tumor on my bladder.
The surgeries left me with a 20+ in scar from my sternum to my pubic area.
I also had 70% of my left lung removed. I have short-term memory loss sometimes daily due to the chemotherapy and severe joint aches (knees and right elbow).
I have no health insurance at the moment. My income has been cut tremendously due to the sickness.
I am one month behind on my home mortgage.
My car is not dependable.
I cannot get my medication due to no insurance.
My home needs minor repairs that I cannot afford due to my fixed income.
I receive SSDI.
Family and friends have helped me when I was sick but I will no longer go to them due to pride issues and it's just not right.
I really am just seeking medical benefits and grants to catch up with my home payment and make it current.
I also am looking for grant money for two businesses: a baseball mentoring program and a real estate investing/consulting business.
I am looking for grants to start a non-profit baseball facility in my area. I need funding for a building, equipment, supplies, advertising, etc. to help the local kids.
I also am looking for funding for profit in the real estate investing and consulting. I would need the funds for supplies, advertising, purchase money.
I am looking to help people purchase homes and investment property, possibly partner with them and get back into investing myself and help provide clean safe housing other people.
