Cerebral Palsy Disabled Young Man Seeks Life Changing Education Grant Money

I'm a hard-working 29-year-old with cerebral palsy and I'm looking for disability grant money to change my life through education.

I've been working a 9 to 5 job for the past three years and have found out that my body is having trouble keeping up with the daily grind.

I was on Supplemental Security Income but I was kicked off due to making a whopping $13,000 this last year and I say that sarcastically.

I finally decided to try and apply for some schools. The only problem with that as far as I know a grant will only cover about $130.

I think that is outrageous especially when the course I would like to take costs about $18,000 and some of my options are deferred payments or decide whether or not to make my living expenses or those minimum loan payments each month.

To me in today's society that is just unacceptable. I think people should feel excited about exceeding their education, and not worried like me about how much they are going to have to go into debt just to make a better life for themselves.

I just don't see how I can do this on my own, I work so hard just to pay the bills I have and I only end up with about $50 to myself for the month.

I just hope I can figure out one day how to afford both school and the rest of the bills. Disability grant money to change my life would make all the difference.
