2020 my series of bad luck ending with robbery...

In need of help from this sorry excuse of a year that was topped off with this robbery through an Airbnb rental. On February, I was selling 3 iPhone XS Maxes on offerup when the buyer offered an extra $75 if I can meet him at CVS Pharmacy in DTLA. I obliged and met him at that location. Everything seemed to be going well and the deal was made. He casually asked if I wanted to follow him to his car where he left the funds. (I would have done the same) Apparently he led me to a blind spot from CVS Pharmacy’s cameras and two of his friends came out of the shadows to initiate the beat down on yours truly nearly beating me to death over some iPhones. I had a black eye, other minor injuries, and a foot fracture. Because of covid, it took a long tome to see my doctor at Olive View Medical Center. By the time he saw me, I was informed that I should have had surgery earlier and now it was in my best interest to let the injury heal naturally. Fast forward to July, I was admitted into Holy Cross hospital for pneumonia in which I became septic the first two days. My organs nearly failed as the survival rate is 40%, and I was lucky to be alive. Moving on to the next incident, I was moving some boxes and lost my balance and fell down some stairs and made the fracture worse on my left foot while effectively fracturing my right foot and arm. After some X-rays, I am now in dual splints for my feet making it hard to even walk let alone do anything else. Add my other health problems and a 3 month heal will take me 6. Now we are at the robbery... I was moving between Mission Hills and West Hollywood and I had the brilliant idea of renting an Airbnb instead of putting my items in storage and staying at a friends or hotel. I’m guessing that someone saw me moving in expensive equipment, I went back to clean the old place and hang out with a friend and came back to nothing. Literally nothing (and a tornado of a mess). I have savings however lately, because of corona virus, I have been building gaming/streaming computers for friends and clients. These computers are worth minimum of 2k each. I had the following either stolen or broken: MacBook Pro Overpowered LP3 Gaming Laptop Ps4 Wallet ~$250 cash ID Social Security Card Passport Multiple TVs Gaming stuff (controllers, adapters etc) My dj controller ($1000) Various DJ equipment, cables, lights, etc ($5,000) All my Parkinson’s/bipolar medication (controlled narcotics) And priceless photos and items 99 percent of my clothes and shoes. (I had to order boxers and shirts on amazon next day prime and I had mismatched shoes until now) These guys went through my stuff and destroyed the trailer I was in. Airbnb has a convenient loophole and keeps them from claiming and responsibility, they only refunded my cost to book the place and repaired the owner’s RV. I am screwed. Any help is appreciated. Doesn’t have to be money. Clothes, computers, laptops, sound equipment, monitors, hdmi cables, XLR cables, 1/4 inch cables, power supply cables, travel bags, duffel bags, backpacks, shoes, gaming equipment, etc, anything helps. Appreciate it y’all! Stay safe. SGW (A police report has been filed and available to anyone who asks for it with good reason. There is video from a ring camera nearby however, with corona virus, everyone wears masks and these guys obviously took advantage of that.) I mainly made this to be able to link to what happened cuz it’s tiring explaining over and over. EDIT UPDATE 11/1: Thank you EVERYONE for the love and help! Super appreciate all the friends and connections with clothing merch. I’m proud to rock the brand. You all know I’m usually not in a situation like this. I will keep track of who’s donating and I’ll make it up to you guys with my next project or sponsorship through my work. Really happy they didn’t take my custom vinyls. They even took my diplomas and certifications lol. The worst losses this year were the untimely deaths of Justin Larsen, my bro DJ CJ Skywalker, and my angel astrallana. Rest In Peace... thank you for looking after me even though I wanna see you guys, guess it’s not time yet.
