A Helping Hand for Adam's Back

As many of you may already know, Adam has been suffering from severe pain and muscle weakness resulting from arthritis of the spine and disc degeneration.  Being in pain every day and not being able to work, let alone do regular chores around the house, has been very hard on him psychologically and financially.  He’s the type that is always working on something-whether it is his artwork or fixing things around the house or just about anything.  Not being able to work or do things around the house has been very hard for him.  

Treatment of his condition requires surgery that will put him out of work for a minimum of 4 weeks, but more likely 6-12 weeks.  It is expected that even when he returns to work, it will be at reduced hours for several weeks to months.  Without the surgery, his condition will continue to worsen and he will be able to work less and less.

Adam has already been unable to work full-time hours for months.  He’s been scraping by as best he can, trying to keep as many bills as possible paid, but with being off work completely for several weeks following surgery, the costs of the surgery itself, reduced hours when he returns to work, and more doctor’s visits and physical therapy costs after surgery will make it impossible for him to stay afloat without help from you.

We are hoping that you will help us raise $6,300.  Funds would go towards replacing lost income after the surgery, covering some of the outstanding doctor’s bills already racked up, and towards co-pay costs for upcoming doctor’s visits and physical therapy sessions

A lot of us know how precarious living from paycheck to paycheck can be.  What might seem like a financial hiccup to some, will be detrimental to others.  Adam’s situation falls into the latter category.  It is our hope that with help from Adam’s friends and loved ones, we can keep his head above water.

If you are able to help out, we truly appreciate ANY amount. Thank you!  If you are unable to make a donation, we totally understand and appreciate your kindness just the same.  Please help spread the word by forwarding this campaign’s link to others who might be able to.  We hope you will take action to donate or spread the word today. 

Thank you for taking the time to read about Adam’s needs!  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me!
