I am a Chicago Police Officer who while on lunch responded to a call of a drive by shooting. My partner and I were involved in an accident with the offenders. We arrested them and recovered the gun. My cervix vertebra has pinched nerves throughout my spine. Steroid epidural shots, therapy, and all medicines have failed. I have exhausted the one year allowed and I'm forced to apply for duty disability. This process takes two to three months with zero dollars in income. My chapter 13 is dissolved, water was turned off, vehicle booted, unable to assist my daughter with college tuition and all while assisting four underage children who have been displaced. Any assistance during these tumultuous times is greatly appreciated.
