Well, Christmas has passed now but the tensions about are still high. Please everyone, exercise patience when being served or waiting in a line. It's better to go to and from some destination without injury or injuring another. Love your fellow human being!
In this photo I was pretty happy, because my brother in law outta the blue decided to come to Florida and visit me for his birthday. My mother and he share a birthday. We had a great time playing guitar. I just got out of the hospital again just before he came, I am very glad he came. If I have not said it yet, Everyone Merry Christmas 2013!!!
I know that most people out there might think this is a ruse and do not pay much attention. I have not done my part in trying to reach the right crowd. My heart is working pretty hard to keep me going if anybody passes this on I will greatly appreciate it. Hey if you have any ideas on who this link needs to be sent to shoot me an email firstname.lastname@example.org God Bless!
You obviously do not see any urgency. If I am to fade into obscurity, forgotten it probably won't bother any of you. A tornado puppy gets $41,000 in five days? I guess I needed four legs and a tail. How can you all feel more for animal kind than mankind?
Going the extra mile, I find that the reason is you. Yes you! What other possible reason could there be? Yes, I am on a slippery slope, and I am going down. But I am willing to fight, to fight to survive until you who see gofundme.com/2s8qzo and realize that a disaster is right here, right in front of you! You just not looking the other way and helping me is all it is going to take. My hands are out, my heart and soul are in your debt. My very survival is in your hands. I am two steps to becoming a homeless veteran. My faith kept me strong in the belief that somebody is reading this, that somebody has the compassion that it takes to make the first step in throwing me the line that saves me from loss that stares me in the face day in and day out! Being disabled is not fun nor is it dignafying. I can not stress how bad it will be if I loose any more ground. Check out the link, and donate now! Help me, please! God bless
I'm not sure who will see this. But remember this, I am here on this earth for some reason. After an assortment of heart attacks, open heart procedures, heart catheterizations and tons of medicine I am still here. But with all of these hospital stays, I have acquired a total of after insurance of 30 plus thousand dollars. Now my heart has been disabled in the past couple of months. I am a US NAVY VETERAN that our President Carter saw the need to take away my medical benefits because my time falls between Vietnam and Middle Eastern conflicts. So I have to have almost nothing to qualify for medical benefits from the military under the Johnson Act. I have juggled and juggled money and it only allows us to pay the minimums with no GAIN on the principals. I know I am not still here to pay debt for the rest of my life. Can anybody donate to my cause? I feel I have so much to offer. I am a musician and have been for 45 years. Any style, any taste. I have played coast to coast with a number of bands. I still have a compliment of equipment to perform with. My baby daughter is graduating this Friday and spending her last summer with us and heading to USF full ride in medical school. I can't pay for it, thank God for scholarships and Grand Parents. My oldest daughter found gofundme.com/2s8qzo and said "dad you should do this" . So here I am, trying to find those angels here on earth to save my life from this hardship! Donate and change my life!
These two know me!
Do I have any supporters? I ask this because when I posted this, three people actually were out there reading and replied. I have not heard from any other people. I'm guessing that I may not be known like others might think. I had a feeling that this venue is not a blessed as I had hoped it would be. At this rate It will cost me to advertise before there is a return.
Hi everyone, Been away a few days because I was in the hospital for another heart related problem. 8th time in 7 months
Hi everyone! Today is a good day, my health has improved. Except for my painful feet, I feel relatively normal today. I would like to do some gardening, but I need to pick up a few things first. I have had another donation, and I thank you personally for your generosity. Some day soon I hope to rid my self of these bills and start really living again. I do feel this will happen. My thanks to this site and those who use it.
Well I am just a normal guy looking to serve my fellow man. Only I have these health problems that limit me several ways. But I try to deal with my health as best as I can. I also try to play a tune as often as possible. What intrigues me the most is that I have worked my way through all this life drama and still have the will to keep trudging on. Not out of spite, or hate but with the faith that as long as a new day shows up for me to meet! Those of you who have faith, you have a drive to empower the day if for no one else, then for God / Jesus. I have seen things in my life that would glorify some people. But on the other hand, I've seen things that tear man down as well. It all depends on a certain point of view.Yours! You see, if it matters to you care of what happens around you. Then that's what is important. You see, if you can influence one person in a positive fashion, that's totally worth the effort don't you think?
Today was a good day, I volunteered to chaperone a field trip to the Polk County Library for the third grade at Griffin Elementary School. Later after that, we took them to lunch and on to Barnett Park. The kids burned off some energy after checking out library books. They also had lunch in the middle. We arrived back at school about 1:00 pm. Good day!
Thank you for taking the time to look at my page. I promise you all there will be positive report coming up!
Well, I have been plagued with the genes from hell. Was in the hospital Friday May 3rd, my diabetes had changed and through everything out of wack. Dizziness became my plague for the day. Those of you fighting diabetes you know how uphill it can be. One hour you're on the low side of the numbers and the next you're screwed. I am on the mend now, I have a plan and I am better. I still need you all. Maybe one day I can play some classic rock for you live!!!
It has been my experience that not many people have seen the problem I face. This is mostly my doing, you see I am not much of a blogger at 57. Not to late to learn, but I am drowning nevertheless. I don't wish to go down. $70.00 Is all that has come. Now as one human being to another, you all know how far $70.00 dollars goes. Help me please.
Amazing photo. This photo hasn't seen the light of day for probably 25 years. Look at that!!! I was playing a 1970's Lyle guitar.
This is me in the US Navy on my Lyle.
Did I mention, I am disabled. I can't work. I want to work, but my doctor says enough is enough. Six heart attacks later. I guess I'm supposed to be here for some reason. I won't dispute it.
I've been a musician for 45 years. My passion is music. I believe it has kept me alive through all the trials and tribulations I've experienced throughout the years.
My life has always been an upward battle. In 1997, I contracted a severe case of Pancreatitis and I graciously won myself a helicopter ride to the nearest major hospital. That year also brought me the curse of Type 2 Diabetes. Both cases I could live with rather comfortably.
It wasn't until 1999 that my life took a turn for the worst. I experienced something I would come to know all too well. I was 44 and felt the gripping sensation in my left arm. I had no idea it would be my first of 7 life-threatening heart attacks.
Today, I am almost more metal than man. I was given 11 stents to open my clogged arteries. I underwent numerous surgeries to eradicate my heart disease. I even had my sternum cracked open to facilitate an invasive quadruple-bypass surgery in 2005, which proved faulty and collapsed. Yet my upward battle had not reached its peak.
The past 6 months have been a struggle. I've been admitted to the Veteran's Hospital 7 times and the debt I've obtained is pulling me under. The bank threatens the security of my car and my house. I've worked my hands to the bone providing for my 3 children. My youngest of which, goes off to college this fall.
However, my doctor will no longer allow me to work. He said I'll kill myself if I do. I must keep my family afloat while I still can. We all have been hit by these hard times and I believe everyone needs a helping hand sometimes. I would appreciate anything you can offer me, even if it's just kind words of motivation.
A peaceful musician,
