Accident Disabled Father Seeks Disability Grant For Car And Daily Needs
(Cape Coral, FL, USA)
My name is Steve. I am currently 44 years old. I have been married for 12 years. I have three kids.
I have been disabled for the last six months. It is terrible. I was hit by a car in June, and tore ligaments and tendons in the right knee.
I have provided for my wife and three stepchildren for the last 12 years. Now I can't provide for anyone.
I have worked in several fields over the years. I have always been willing to do what it takes. I have not been able to walk for the last six months.
I have not been able to work for the last six months. The only assistance I get now is for food stamps. They help, but not with the rent, electric and other bills I have.
My medical bills are five digits, and now with no insurance, my credit is destroyed.
I have applied for SSI ("it may take up to six months") and state assistance ("apply with the government first").
I am used to doing manual labor, but since I can't stand, all my years of experience mean nothing.
Plain and simple, I seek cash, a car, help with medical bills, clothing and heating assistance. I will take anything I can get.
Six months ago, I was not seeking sympathy, but after the last few months, I realize that this is a very difficult journey.
