My son, Brandt Lawing had emergency cardiac bypass surgery August 8 2018 and will be out of work for approximately two months or so. Unfortunately, he has no short term disability and very little financial reserves to sustain two months without a salary as he is the sole breadwinner. His wife is disabled and unable to work. There are three children at home - two of whom are in college. Though two of the children have part time jobs, they will be unable to continue working when college starts this week. My son needs money to pay his household bills, groceries, medical costs not reimbursed by insurance and transportation costs. The two college students attend UNCC and drive to and from college daily which is about 60 miles. Brandt's family will, of course, help all we can but we are unable to provide the monies needed to sustain this family during their time of trouble. Any amount will help and be so appreciated.
