Heart Attack Disabled Chris Seeks Grants For Debt Relief And Home Business
by Chris Hudak
(Parma Heights, Ohio, USA)
I'm a 58-year-old father of two young men living in Cleveland Ohio. Divorced for 15 years, I raised my two boys by myself. They are now on their own and I live alone with my dog. I have no other family.
March 1, 2015 I was hospitalized with shortness of breath. Doctors told me I had suffered a massive heart attack, four days prior, a result of 95 per cent blockage in two arteries.
They put two stents in my heart and I'm now on strong medication. The heart attack caused a severe loss of hearing, physical strength and stamina.
Besides being unsteady and disoriented at times, I struggle through every day.Financial Hardship
In August I was approved for Social Security Disability benefits. My claim is not retroactive so I lost all my life savings waiting.
I have lived as a newspaper carrier since my divorce and do not have any more finances.
My auto is a lease that will expire in April.
I've been through credit counseling and have determined my benefits are $180-$200 short of monthly expenses.Income Efforts
For years I have researched online to supplement my income. Now I need something online to sustain my existence.
My doctor has told me not to work for physical and stamina reasons.
I was turned down for some Social Security benefits when I applied because I had money in the bank.
Not any more… I am broke but fortunate to have Medicaid to pay medical bills. I've searched through county and state programs but to no avail.Specific Needs
I physically struggle every day in my healing process. The problems I have are financial.
I am looking for grants, programs and/or advice on work-at-home computer jobs to get me out of $20,000 in debt and financially afford some type of transportation in April when my lease expires.
If my debt remains as it is, then deficit from Disability benefits becomes my problem.Business Idea
For years I have wanted to have my own tax business, then I wanted to get into cleaning. My strength and stamina are health issues, so now I am limited to working at home online.
My dream jobs are gone and I therefore seek advice and guidance on work-at-home computer jobs that I can do on my own schedule.
