Disability Grants Would Help Anemia And Aneurysm Disabled Father Pay Bills

by Derrick Jamison
(Southaven, Mississippi, USA)

I'm a 37-year-old African American male from Chicago IL. I currently live in Southaven, Mississippi with my mom and dad.

I have a 17-year-old son who's a senior in high school and a 16-year-old daughter who's a sophomore in high school. I have two brothers and three sisters

Disability Issues

I've been diagnosed with sickle cell anemia and a brain aneurism. Oftentimes it causes me to lose focus or concentration on what I'm doing. I take medicine to control my headaches and maintain my focus.

I take blood thinner to circulate my blood. Without it, there could be a loss of blood circulation. This once resulted in me having a cracked hip. It eventually led to having hip surgery, which was successful.

I'm also in need for serious dental care.

Financial Hardship

I am currently receiving $418 a month. My parents also receive social security.

My total deduction is $418 after child support, which leaves me with less than that after bills, and things I need,

I'm also paying rent for living with my senior citizen parents.

Income Efforts

I'm searching for government grants, but to no avail so far.

Specific Needs

I need financial aid and grant information to help me with:
- reducing housing expenses
- paying off debts
- paying off medical bills
- getting dental work
- getting a better living situation
- starting my own business
- going back to college to study law enforcement
