I have two children, eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
I retired in June 2009 due to multiple medical conditions, which have left me totally disabled.

- osteoporosis arthritis
- peripheral neuropathy
- torn rotor cuffs
- carpal tunnel syndrome
- high blood pressure
- left knee pain
- right knee, groin, thigh and hip pain
- left and right shoulder pain
- neck and upper back painFinancial Hardship
I receive Social Security Benefits (SSA) and pension/disability Insurance.
Also, I receive meals on wheel.
After paying bills and living expenses I do not have enough left to afford the costs of co-payments of medications, in-home supportive services, home modifications, vehicle modifications and car repairs, dental insurance, and gardening.Income Efforts
I have applied for In-home Supportive Services, but I have a high share of cost.
I am in the process of contacting other charities and government agencies I think can help.
I contacted United Disabilities, but they only assist consumers in Pennsylvania.Specific Needs
I would like to be able to acquire benefits or a grant for the following needs:
- personal care assistance
- threshold ramp for front door
- lift for bath tub and grab bar
- dental insurance
- lift or carrier equipment for mobility chair
- sprinkler system for yard and gardener
With these accommodations, I would be able to function safely, live independently and enjoy life mentally, spiritually and emotionally as well as physically.
