These are my wife and kids. They are my world. Nothing has made me prouder then being a good father, husband and provider for my family.
At the end of 2015 the way of life that I was used to was taken away from me and I suffered from a stroke in my spine and strokes in my brain which caused me to become paralyzed from the waist down. I spent over 30 days in a medically-induced coma. When I woke up I realized I did not have my legs anymore and I had to spend almost a year in the shepherd Spinal Rehab Center getting Rehabilitation and therapy.
A few months ago, I lost my job and all of my benefits and I'm still on a waiting period to receive disability benefits. I'm currently sleeping in a hospital bed in a living room in an apartment that is not all wheelchair accessible.
YES... I am blessed to be near my family but I would love to sleep the same bed as my wife and NOT rely on bed baths. I would love to be able to go in my kids room and just spend time with them instead of waiting for them to come out to the living room.
I rely on public transportation to travel. I need help getting in and out of the bed because my wife is a little lady and I am a big guy with little balance because I have no core. Let's just say life is not been easy on me and my family the past few years. For those of you that who do not know, medical products are very expensive period especially for paraplegics. I need ramps a wheelchair-accessible car and again... An apartment or home that is fully accessible for me. Right now I am not too proud to say that I also need help and assistance in my life for my kids and I because my wife cannot do this all by herself.
Anything that you can do to help my family and I would be deeply appreciated period anything to help us get on our journey and live more like a normal family.
Please help us and God Bless...
