Hello and Thank You for your time. Those of you, either because of my business or as friends, that know me know that I work hard and have plenty of Hustle. Things seem to come together when I need them to. I have always had a very positive attitude about this.
In This past year I have had double hernia surgery, I rolled my rt ankle under at work, and I have had total knee replacement surgery on both knees. In each case I have been able to have most the medical and prescription expenses covered. I also have been able to cover most of my personal monthly expenses.
I was approved to have the 2 knee replacement surgeries earlier in 2017. But the double hernia surgery was more urgent, and the knee surgeries were delayed.
I eventually had my left knee replaced on December 5th of 2017. I did receive some financial aid for my December bills.
My right knee replacement surgery was on January 23rd of 2018, with some minor difficulties, but again my medical and medication cost were still covered, as everything had been pre-approved in April of 2017.
Following my discharge from the hospital on Jan 25th, 2018, I still had not received any financial assistance toward my monthly bills for January and for further into 2018.
Upon checking on this I was informed that I had exhausted my financial aid and would not be receiving any more assistance. As I no longer qualify, And it now being 2018.
This has caught me off guard and drastically unprepared.
Thus I am now facing multiple late charges and I have several impending cancellation notices. I have no way to stop these from proceeding.
And just like everyone of you, I still have the monthly bills for Food, Rent, Utilities, Phone, A storage rental, Transportation Expenses, my Commercial vehicle insurance, and my Commercial Liability insurance as I own "Johnnie On the Spot" Handyman and Tree Services. I am a small sole proprietor business, and with this being said, I do not have Personal Health Insurance.
Because of the surgeries I am now temporarily handicapped.
It is now the end of January and I have been out of the hospital for less than a week. As I said I am faced with a multitude of late payment charges, and notices for intent of cancellation of services.
I have just had both knees replaced. I am unable to stand for longer than a few minutes, And without the use of a walker I am medically and physically unable to walk, let alone work. And I will be like this for several more months as I undergo a Rigorous Physical Therapy treatment.
For various reasons I do not qualify for Financial Aid nor do I qualify for any SSI programs.
I am asking and seeking any and all possible help that anyone may give, even in the slightest way.
As I will not be able to afford any of those high initial Premium costs or Deposits again, if I were to lose any of the coverages or services for Rent, Utilities, Phone, Insurances, or the Storage rental.
Any and all help that anyone could give would be greatly appreciated.
Obce again I Thank you for taking the time to read this.
And may God Bless You.
Humbly and sincerely I thank you.

(by that gesture in itself you are helping, thank you)
