Jim's "Surgery Went Wrong”

Go fund me supporters,
Most of you know the story of my
Situation. I went in for a routine check up.
While the surgeons we're operating they
Discovered a mass on my Colon that they
Determined should come out. So they 
Made the decision to remove it. During
The operation the surgeons made an
Error and severed some nerves in my
body. When I woke up the next morning,
I was unable to get up, walk, take a shower
or bath. I could not get up and do anything
on my own. I was bed ridden for 16 months. 
After many months of testing with specialist in and of the hospital. Finally the hospital
gave up and told me I would have to get use to this quality of life. My wife was told she would have to be my caregiver 24/7.
I ran a local business in Greenville for
36 years, a three sport athlete most of
my life. I have a great family, a wife and
two beautiful girls 13 & 11. I had to walk
away from the business, unable to go
Back to work. I was declared totally
disabled and so we had to try and live on
Disability pay. We lost everything we had
worked so hard for. My wife was told she
needed to stay at home with me and not
Attempt to go to work. The botched
Surgery causes me to pass out many times
During the day. We list our home, vehicles
and most personal belongings. We have
No way to get the girls to school, my
appointments, the girls doctor appoints.,
I feel like my life was taken away from me,
And the ability to provide for my family.
From so many Go Fund Me Supporters
Have convinced me to not give up and
help was out there. I was told about a 
Repair Surgery on the damaged nerves,
That may allow me a better way of life.
However, we do not have any coverage
That will pay for the operation.
My prayers are that you all will help me
Raise the funds to get this procedure done
That will allow me, a better quality if life
So I can spend the time with my family,
Get up and do the things I have always
Done, even if if is a little slower. I need
To get my relationship back with my wife
and daughters.
I need everyone's help to accomplish these
We have no family on either family side.
All we have is our Go Fund Me Family,
Which is pretty awesome. We need to
try and purchase a used and safe vehicle
Vehicle to make appointments, school
Can you all please help us to get our
Family back together, so I can provide
For my family instead of being a burden.
My health seems to be declining. I need
to get these procedures done immediately
before it is to late to repair the damage.
I do Believe in all if you, and counting
on your help!
I promise you, my family will pay it forward,
As soon as I am on my feet again.
Please believe in us and send help as soon
as it is possible.
I think with GOD and all you guys, this
Can/will have a good outcome!!

We love all of you!!

Jim, Melissa, Kendall, Katie Camden
