Grant Help Needed For Car Accident Disabled Single Guy To Make Ends Meet
by Shane Brown
(Cincinnati, Ohio, US)
I'm just a disabled single guy trying to make it in the world. I need help, like a grant, to be able to do it.
I had a job at the VA Hospital working with our veterans. Now I have nurses helping me.
My life as a disabled person started on September 12, 2011, when I was in a bad car accident.
I suffered a broken left femur and shoulder, a cracked hip on my right side, a broken right elbow and a crushed right hand.
I had two separate 12-hour surgeries, one to fix my left femur, hip and shoulder, and another to fix my right hand and elbow.
Disabled as I now am, it's hard for me to take care of myself as I used to. Now I have to depend on other people to take me places like the store or to help me cook and get my house clean.
The accident has left me with financial problems. For example… I can't afford to make my house payment, so it is now going into foreclosure. In addition, I have no insurance to help me pay for my medication.
I applied for SSI and SSD and both turned me down. My doctor said I would not be returning to work for about a year or maybe longer due to all the broken bones.
I would like to see myself get my SSI or SSD. I have an attorney working on that now.
I would also like to be able to get a grant to help me pay off my hospital bills and to catch up on my mortgage, gas, electricity and water payments.
