My wife helped me write this.
Hello. My name is Gary Lee Hauser Jr, and I'm hoping, and praying, someone can help me. Please. Will you help me ? I apologize for me not smiling in the picture. Unfortunately, I'm always in severe pain. I was born with severe asthma, which almost killed me. I was also born with a genetic disorder, which causes me to continually have kidney stones, as well as degenerative disc disease, spondylitis, spondylolisthesis, and scoliosis. I've struggled to work, as normal people have, and exercised to build my immune system up. For a short time, I felt somewhat normal, although my asthma,and kidney stones reminded me otherwise. In 1996, I broke my back in a fall. I had pedicle screws inserted in the L5 region. The pain was unbelievable. My asthma grew worse. I was out of work for a time. When I went back, I knew my body would never be the same. Still, I carried on as best as I could. In 2012, I was married. For the first time ever, I was hopeful. In October, my Father died, of Cancer, and Heart Disease. I was completely devastated. Still, I carried on, silently, as best as possible. In December 2012, I had a pallet full of groceries fall on me at work. My neck, and back, felt like they were on fire. I went to the Doctor, and was out of work. I was depressed, broke, and couldn't think because of the pain. They put me on various pain medications, which barely helped. My Mother was diagnosed with Cancer shortly after. I was numb. I just couldn't believe it. I prayed to God he'd heal her. I couldn't lose them both. In June 2013, my Mom passed away. I wept. Again. A lot. I've lost friends, and family before, but this was much worse. God help you when you lose your parents. I continued to go to the Doctor, and continued to try different treatments. Nothing really worked. My asthma got worse. If it wasn't for my nebulizer, I'd not be able to breathe. Asthma makes you feel like an elephant, with a switchblade, has stepped on your chest. The pain causes more asthma attacks than normal. I'm exhausted all the time. I went to Chapel Hill, North Carolina, for a kidney diagnosis. I found out I had kidney stones adhered to my ureter wall. I had to get surgery. There was no way to describe the pain. I was told after the surgery, my kidneys are damaged, and don't work correctly. If it wasn't for my loving wife being a nurse, I'd be dead. Her love is why I'm alive. I feel she'd be better off without me. I wonder why God keeps me here. Later still, I had to get my gallbladder removed. I collapsed outside of the emergency room. I filed disability. Apparently it takes forever. The pain is so bad, at times I feel like I'm dying, but at least when you're dead, you sleep In February of this year, 2017, I finally had neck surgery. The pain was horrible, but unfortunately, I'm used to pain. I'm still recovering. At least I'm not wearing the collar anymore. Unfortunately, because of financial difficulties, I now have no insurance. Just when it couldn't get worse. Recently, I looked at all the medical bills that have piled up. I literally owe hundreds of thousands of dollars. I don't know what to do. We barely make it month-to-month. Our car is also falling apart, literally. We don't have the money to get it fixed either. If we don't have transportation, my wife can not work, and I have no way to get to my Doctor appointments. If anyone can help replace a radiator, We'd appreciate it. That's my story. I pray someone can help me. I don't know what else to do. Will you help me ? If I don't get help, I'm not going to survive. I don't know what to do.
