Chad is a 42 year old man who is a wonderful caring father, friend, brother, and son. Chad was in the prime of his life. He had a job he loved with Universal Well Services, a new relationship, and awaiting football season to watch his son play. Chad is not one to sit still, Chad is a very hard worker and is always busy. His work ethic is second to none. He has been very down about the fact that he cannot work and do the things he once enjoyed doing.
Since Chad is unable to work Chad he is receiving short term disability. This benefit provides him with 60% of his earned income before being sick. Due to not being able to work, Chad had to move from his home into mine, he is unable to drive, so any where he wants to go someone else has to take him. He recently-which was a very hard decision for him was the need to find good homes for his dog and cat. Chad's whole life as he knew it changed in the matter of 24 hours. NOW.....the medical bills are rolling in by the 100 thousands. He will lose his medical benefits on September 1, 2013, so he will have no insurance to cover medical costs. He is on a multitude of medications that cost 100's of dollars each month. The continued bi-weekly (sometimes weekly) trips to Pittsburgh have become burdensome with meals, parking, and the cost of gas.
It is true when in crisis you find out who your true friends are! Chad's friends, family, (my family), and co-workers have been wonderful to Chad and I during his health crisis. I can not thank everyone enough for their continued generosity and kindness that was shown to us during the last 3 months. I also want to thank Chad's, Universal Well Family-thank you for all that you have done for us!
Thank you again- this has been a devastating time for our family, friends, and most importantly Chad. We are asking you to please donate if you cannot, please keep Chad and his family in your prayers and spread the link to all of your Facebook, Twitter, and e-mail friends. Thanks, Colette Hamaker
