Help Ben Walk His Daughter Down The Aisle

Hello everyone, this summer I was shot 16 times in a carjacking in Minneapolis. My case has been buried and hearing back from disability to get help has been an absolute nightmare. I am in physical therapy right now, slowly taking steps. I have a wife and a newborn baby at home and we are living off of her income alone. I am working as hard as I can to get back on my feet so at some point I can work again, but the bills are piling in, the bank account is diminishing. I’ve swallowed my pride to reach out and ask for help. Thank you for reading, God bless you, and head held high.
