On Dec 9th, 2020 I was in a horrible car accident right outside a hospital. I was on my way to that very hospital because I was experiencing low oxygen levels due to COVID-19. After the accident, I spent a week and 3 days in the hospital on oxygen and also due to some injuries from the accident. When I was released, I had to stay on oxygen and had to get an at-home physical therapist and nurse.
To make matters worse, my insurance company is not going to cover the accident because I didn’t have coverage for someone else driving my car. My best friend Chris drove me because I couldn’t drive myself to the hospital. The police also reinforced that it was his fault. So, the insurance didn’t cover me. I don’t have GAP insurance on my loan for my car so, I still have to pay my full car loan and find a way to get a new car to be able to get to work and doctor’s appointments.
This has been one of the hardest things I have gone through in my life. Especially being in the hospital with COVID. I felt alone in there. Even though all my friends and family checked on me every day. After discussing all this with a few of my close friends. They suggested I should make a Go Fund Me and ask my friends and family for help. I was hesitant but I am honestly down and need some help to get back up.
Below are the totaled prices of the expenditures I will be making:
· For home oxygen use the cost is $1,832
· For a car, I would need $2,500
· In-home care physical therapy and oxygen supervision $1,200
Please and thank you for anything you can donate I understand this is a hard time for everyone so if you can’t donate, I fully understand. I would have never thought that I would be asking for help with money. I always try and do things myself and not ask for very much help at all. I always think about making sure everyone else is doing well because my friends and family mean the world to me. Once again thank you for your time.
