Government Grant Money Needed To Help 40 Year Old Disabled Man Avoid Losing All

by Keith Senkowski
(Houghton Lake, MI, USA)

I am now 40 years old and have been disabled since I was 33 thanks to the negligence and incompetence of my former employer.

Because my accident happened at work, I was forced to go through the workers compensation system.

Before the accident, I lived a pretty comfortable life. I had nice-sized savings and checking accounts. I paid all my credit cards off monthly. I had a nice house in a quiet rural area. I bought a new vehicle every 3-5 years for my wife and myself, took vacations whenever we needed one, and was all in all very happy.

Since the accident, workers comp stole EVERYTHING from me that I worked my butt off to attain over many years of work. I now have no savings and very little in my checking, and my credit cards are all in collections.

I was forced to sell my house, and forced to trade in my vehicle because I could no longer afford it. The one I have now I can no longer drive because I need over $1,000 to make it safe to drive once again.

Along the way I also got divorced. I'm now in dire need of a vacation to just about anywhere just so I don't lose what is left of my sanity, and am VERY depressed.

I wish I could put a happier face on this, but I can't. I have been forced to pretty much lead a life of begging because I am no longer able to work and the systems that were supposed to be there to help me, instead stole everything from me!

I have tried everything I know about to get financial help, but all to no avail. I would like a grant in the area of $300,000 if that is even possible, but would gratefully accept anything.

I would love to pay off all of my outstanding debts, get a new vehicle, start a business I can do with my disability, and buy a house I can be happy in. I don't think I am asking for too much after what I have been through.

I understand that there are people out there in way worse situations that myself, and I hope they get what they are looking for also. I have never done one of these before, and I'm quite sure I'm doing it wrong, but it said to tell my story, and this is it.
