Disabled, Neglected Veteran in Need

Thank you for visiting my GoFundMe. 

My father is a 100% disabled veteran who had served in the U.S. NAVY Seabees. The VA is obligated to pay his medical expenses and all treatment provided. They have failed to do so for 13+ years due to him blowing the whistle on Hines VA for rotting corpses in the morgue and terrible treatment for veterans. He is not the only one struggling. There are 500k veterans that commit suicide per year. My father may become one of them.

I am asking for $1000 for my dad because he has been completely cut off of his meds from the VA and he can no longer afford medication for himself through clinics. I just want my dad back. The picture in this is a span of about 6 years or so. The slow degradation of his body due to his right hip having screws misplaced and sitting there without proper VA care to remove them, a dead right femur head from malpractice on the hip, a worn out left hip from overcompensation from the right, 3 slipped disks in his neck, heart problems (most likely due to the amount of  medication to compensate for his pain, or the abrupt stopping of medication that he was on for the duration of everything aforementioned)

If I can reach this goal within a month it may mean that he will be able to have pain relief long enough for the possibility for him to have either 1) proper surgery or 2) find a Veteran Affairs group that is willing to help him.


I appreciate all support no matter how big or how small.
