Help Paul Get Up Again!!

Our good friend Paul is struggling. He has been knocked down by Serious Financial difficulties and debilitating medical issues.His medical conditions (rheumatoid arthritis, COPD, Diabetes, kidney and lung problems, fibromyalgia, and chronic pain) have only gotten worse over the last few years & he can no longer work. He is out of savings and is overwhelmed by medical bills. The straw that has broken the camel’s back & an added burden to this is that the SSA has claimed they have overpaid him by $60,000 in disability money over the last few years, which he is now forced to pay back. Per his doctors’ orders he is on bedrest, and they are working to try to figure out a way to manage Paul’s disability. Paul has been improving greatly on his own; managing his nutrition and doing small exercises daily, but the combination of some medicines and his conditions continue to hurt him. We have had many months of wrestling before being able to proceed with this GoFundMe, as Paul does not like to ask for help at all. He is a wonderful father, friend, and member of the community and appreciates all the many people who have helped thus far. Paul has been knocked down, I hope you will help him get up again! Up in health, back on his feet financially, and lift up his spirits again!! Any donated money will be used to pay medical bills and pay off the onerous debt he is under.Thank you!!!
