Getting off Disbility.

$600 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 2 people in 10 months
Mark Henry  BENSON, NC
My wife and I are both on Disabilty.  Myself due to a Stroke, Renal Transplant and Vision issues due to Juvenile Diabetes from age 22mos.  The wife had a Herniated Disc in her back with several others ready to go.  She has had surgery but it has left hervin constant pain since.

Being that neither one of us is material for hiring and that Disability does not cover even the basic of needs we are looking at options to become self-supporting and get off of Disability.

The plan is simple-I am an artist.  I photograph and I create things.   We need to buy a trailer to go get materials such as Barn Wood in order for me to build furniture and other nice, unusual objects.  I also create jewelry thru the lost wax method-unique pieces but need to buy/build a smelter.  Eventually I will also be doing Custon knives and Tomahawk heads among things as well as publishing several books but we need the funs to get things started.  Disability will never provide the funds to makes this happen so we will be stuck in a Viscuous Circle.

That is where I am hoping to get the assist from a GoFundMe page.

Even a dollar-less than a coffee will put us closer to the goal of cutting free.



Any assist is truly appreciated.

Here is a link to my photos-under Mind of Madness is a series of images titled 'Ivy's House" these and The Wanderer are going to be Coffee Table novels-the images guide you thru the stories..   This is just so you cvan get a feel for me and understand who I am and what Inam about.  [[I started photographing in my 20's when I found out I was losing my vision-technically I should be blind by now-or simply dead.  But here I is.  :) ]]

Well, some havs helped. A friend us giving me a trailer. Unfortunately we may need the trailer to move as we are behind on Mortgage now and they want payment. Do selves a favor-do not end up on Disability if at all possible. My deepest appreciation for those helping.

I'm supposed to post an update. Well, got a little help which we are thankful for otherwise I am syringe feeding one of our cats which is likely dying as he is wasting away. Not idea why but perhaps Feleuk or Cancer. I've got Tomatoe plants growing as well. :)
