David’s Covid-19 & pneumonia battle isn’t over

After an already tough 2020, which I’m certain we are all struggling through, I was suddenly hit with a combination of COVID-19 and pneumonia myself. I spent the first few hours in the ER being tested and observed before being admitted to a standard room. When my fever and cough became more severe I was moved into the ICU. I had an emergency plasma transfusion which clearly saved my life but the medical expenses for my stay and the transfusion are absolutely astronomical. I’ve negotiated with the hospital but the bills are still well beyond what I can afford at this time. I will be back to work in due time and I’ll get back on my feet. For now however, I’m coming to you with my hat in my hand. I’m asking help for the first time but I have no choice. I’m simply trying to keep my car and home in order to have a roof over my head and transportation to and from work once I’m released from quarantine. I hope this doesn’t sound like someone looking for a free handout, or taking advantage of people with big hearts. I’m not accustomed to asking for help. I am simply requesting financial assistance to keep my life moving in a positive direction. As most know, I donate often myself and I’m a big believer in paying good deeds forward. Thank you in advance, David Baird
