Asking for a Hand Up

Well, I haven’t really ever done anything like this before but here we go. 

On October 10th, 2020, I was in a car accident and our car was totaled. 52244012_1604075033812548_r.jpegI went to the Er the following day and was diagnosed with a concussion. I didn’t figure it was a big deal. Well, as the days went on my symptoms began to worsen and I went to see my PCP. Long story short, I am now seeing a concussion specialist who has put me off work since the accident and I am not sure exactly when I’ll be going back. 

Basically, the reason I’m asking for a hand up is because although I have been approved for short term disability from my job, it doesn’t pay 100% and now I’m looking at being late/not being able to pay all of the bills and rent. If you know me, you know how hard I work to take care of my family and I wouldn’t ask for help if I really didn’t need it. So, if you can help us, please donate. I promise to pay it forward and we appreciate all of your help.
