Help Me Walk Again!

My name is Jeffrey and I am a bilateral below the knee amputee. I had to undergo amputations due to a bone disease called Charcot and infected bones. This has been an incredibly difficult time for me and my family, but I have not let my disability define me.

Since my amputations, I have been trying to adapt to my new way of life. However, the costs of transportation to and from physical therapy appointments, as well as other medical-related expenses, have been a huge financial burden on me, as I am living on a fixed income.

This is why I am reaching out to you for help. I am humbly requesting donations to help cover the cost of transportation to physical therapy and other medical-related expenses. I am determined to continue my journey toward recovery and independence, and any support would be greatly appreciated.

Your donation, no matter how small, will make a tremendous difference in my life. It will not only help me with the financial aspect of my recovery but also motivate me to keep going and not give up on my dreams.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I truly appreciate your support and kindness.
