Disabled Man Seeks Living Allowance Grant For Multiple Work Related Disabilities

(Dongola, IL, USA)

Even a small disability living allowance for my multiple disabilities would make a BIG improvement in my life. Please read my story and consider helping me when no one else will.

I'm a 50-year-old man and I've worked hard all my life, never asking for any handouts.

I've given help to every person that ever came along that needed it in any way. Now I need help myself.

My disabilities started when I was driving a loader and semi for a company and I was required to haul some chemicals that were hazardous to my health without my knowledge.

I then started getting very sick unable to breath even while resting, I went to the doctor and the doctor done test after test and found out I had COPD, Emphysema, and Diverticulitis.

I am on oxygen and medication for everything and yet unable to get any help from the state, or social security. I still have bills and payments to make yet I am unable due the fact that I am unable to work.

I have a grandson who is seven years old. He wants to do so much, but I can't breath well enough to go outside to play with him. And I can't even go to his school activities.

I would really appreciate any help or anyone knowing of anyone who could help me. I would really love to be able to fix my house and make it livable for me with my condition

It would be so lovely to be able to walk out on my front porch and try to get some fresh air without worrying about falling through the porch.

I really appreciate your reading my story and considering me for your help. Any kind of disability living allowance for my multiple disabilities would mean so much to me and my family.
