Please Help My Struggling 83 Year Old Grandpa

My grandpa is my rock. He has given me great strength for over 32 years now. I was raised by my grandpa and grandma. Grandma passed away several years ago and since then things have been particularly hard for him. He has had to take out loans and credit cards to try to make ends meet the best he can. Unfortunately, all the money he has coming in is a little social security check. He lost everything years ago during the financial crisis.

I do my best to help feed and provide for him in the ways I know how. Unfortunately, I am on disability myself and am unable to care for him the way he should and deserves to be cared for. He has no one but me. I have had to move in with grandpa to try to help with the things I can such as cleaning, cooking and some outside work. However, bills are piling up for both of us. This fundraiser benefits only my grandpa because I can figure something out on my own. He is my main priority and every dollar is going towards helping pay for the things he needs.

Grandpa's Needs:

* My grandpa is in dire need of a vehicle. His check engine light has come on recently and is having trouble starting his van. He has had it for over 20 years. I personally don't have a vehicle myself because I am a bad epileptic and that's one reason I am on my disability. We cannot be without a vehicle.

* Grandpa's dryer is on the verge of tearing up.

* Grandpa owes thousands and thousands of dollars to credit cards and loan companies.

* Grandpa is having trouble affording his every day expenses including food, medicine and monthly bills.

Grandpa needs the funds as soon as possible, but I am not putting a time line on anything. My goal is $10,000, but in reality we need a lot more than that. However, $20,000 would be GOLD in grandpa's eyes. He's still here and he's still fighting. My grandpa means so much to me because without him and my grandma, I would not still be here today. Grandpa and I appreciate your support of any kind whether it's $1.00, $5.00, $10.00, $100.00 or more. We are beyond grateful.

This is for grandpa and this is my way of giving back all that he has ever done for me. Thank you all once again for your support.
