Disability Grant To Help Cancer Disabled Baseball Fan With Home Payments

by Dale Slater
(Willard, Ohio, USA)

I am a 40-year-old father of three and a grandfather.

I am an ex-college baseball pitcher and former professional draft pick (KC Royals).

I currently mentor a few kids a couple times a week with bettering their baseball skills.

In 2007 I started investing in multi-family real estate. Due to divorce and sickness I no longer have the properties.

Besides my children I have two passions, baseball and real estate.

Disability Issues

In February of 2011 I was diagnosed with Stage 4 testicular cancer. I was covered with tumors from my left testicle all the way to a four cm brain tumor.

I underwent chemotherapy for five months and had multiple surgeries, which included removal of my left testicle and removal of a baseball sized tumor on my bladder.

The surgeries left me with a 20+ in scar from my sternum to my pubic area.

I also had 70% of my left lung removed. I have short-term memory loss sometimes daily due to the chemotherapy and severe joint aches (knees and right elbow).

Financial Hardship

I have no health insurance at the moment. My income has been cut tremendously due to the sickness.

I am one month behind on my home mortgage.

My car is not dependable.

I cannot get my medication due to no insurance.

My home needs minor repairs that I cannot afford due to my fixed income.

Income Efforts

I receive SSDI.

Family and friends have helped me when I was sick but I will no longer go to them due to pride issues and it's just not right.

Specific Needs

I really am just seeking medical benefits and grants to catch up with my home payment and make it current.

I also am looking for grant money for two businesses: a baseball mentoring program and a real estate investing/consulting business.

Business Idea

I am looking for grants to start a non-profit baseball facility in my area. I need funding for a building, equipment, supplies, advertising, etc. to help the local kids.

I also am looking for funding for profit in the real estate investing and consulting. I would need the funds for supplies, advertising, purchase money.

I am looking to help people purchase homes and investment property, possibly partner with them and get back into investing myself and help provide clean safe housing other people.

Dale, have you ever visited this site that tells how to get help with certain medications if you cannot afford them?


And you must visit this page that has detailed step-by-step instructions on how to get the most out of the official federal benefits website:


There are several funding resources available that many do not know about. Follow the instructions to discover what you're eligible for, based on your particular qualifications and needs.

I hope this helps! God bless!
