Due to my physical problems, my home has fallen into a state of disrepair and the town I live in has given me just 30 days (until July 20) to do some or all of the needed repairs. Failure to comply could lead to heavy fines or even the condemnation of the home I've lived in for 44 years. The house is livable, it just needs a lot of fixing up.

I badly need to replace the roof on my house. It is in a state of disrepair which cannot simply be patched and has a large hole in it which is leaking into two rooms, one of which is my bedroom! The cost of replacement will be close to $20,000.  The other areas are all on the exterior of the house, the front porch is the next serious problem as the overhead is collapsing. It is not safe to walk on. 

I have no money to pay for these repairs. My financial situation was exacerbated by health issues I have been dealing with over the past seven years, which culminated in two spinal surgeries during that period which have left me slightly disabled. 

Please help! Whatever you can give is appreciated.  I am asking for a smaller amount than I need and will work with whatever I end up with and do some of the repair work with those funds.

I was a professional in the comics field for 40+ years. I have written and self-published comic books, managed a comic book store, worked for a comic book distributor (Heroes World) for 10 years, been a marketing consultant for publishers and much more. I am a big fan of comics and now I need a Superhero.
