I just wanted to take a moment to share a fundraising gig on fund me about a family needing help. All help is welcomed even if just a few dollars to help this family get the medical attention needed. Please check it out and share with on twitter and Facebook.
My name is Jerri and it’s been one heck of a year for my family. In 2011, I was in an accident that led to injuries in my low back, neck, both hips, knees, shoulders, elbows, and left hand that have left me handicapped. Being that the injury was a work injury, I no longer make any money from it, because worker’s comp only pays for the first two years of any claim. The insurance company delayed my treatment for almost two years and I had to go to court just to get seen. I am in a very severe and debilitating way now and unable to work. I cannot get social security as I am still being treated and am not permanently disabled yet, but cannot work. Last year my husband and I had to make the hardest decision for our family and let the bank take our home and move to the Midwest to find a better opportunity for employment for my husband and hopefully better medical treatment for my work injuries. We have been barely making it with only one person working in the household. Before my work injury I had went to school and gained my Master’s degree in counseling and was working out in the field with clients diagnosed with autism. Since my injury we have lost our home and most of our belongings.
I have put this together for our family’s medical needs, which are many. We haven’t qualified for insurance and we can’t afford to pay for it either. A friend of mine thought putting together a fund might allow people to help us gain some medical attention. We are in need of everything from the eye doctor and glasses to getting a regular checkup. My husband works hard to try to make enough money for our family but it’s just enough to keep a house over our heads. With my medical needs he has to take time off from work with no pay to take me to see specialists and have surgeries and treatments. It’s been a long hard road, but we are hopeful that others may help us raise the monies needed to for our medical needs so that we can be healthy for our family.
I thank you so much for anything that you may want to donate and God Bless you all for your help. Here is the link to the Fund Me site http://www.gofundme.com/jc7q3k
