Please help!

Hi! My name is Dustin August. I am a father of 5 beautiful children and a husband to those 5 children's mother. I have worked hard to provide for my family and be able to have my wife stay home with our kids and homeschool them. Just to let you know a little about me, I am a police officer in the city that I grew up in and love, Denham Springs. I absolutely love my job and look forward to my full recovery so I can get back to doing what I love. I also currently serve in the Louisiana Army National Guard and have been a part of several different operations throughout my career. Oil spill in 2010, Mississippi River Flood in 2011, and from 2013-2014 I served in Afghanistan with the 927th Sapper Co.

On November 16th, I had an injury dislocating my knee, tearing my ACL, my MCL, and my meniscus. I have been in a lot of pain and have not been able to work since. On December 7th, I was finally able to have reconstructive knee surgery. Each day is getting a little bit better for me but I'm still in a lot of pain and will not be able to return to work for at least another few months. We have been in contact with our bill collectors as well as family members trying to make as many arrangements as we can to postpone our bills as I have no income through this holiday season. Now I also have a ton of medical bills rolling in as well and it is extremely overwhelming. My family and I have never been in a situation like this one and we continue to try to stay positive, pray and reach out to God to guide us through this. I am not usually one to ask for help but I'm reaching out now. Please help us in any way that you are able. My family thanks you!
