Prosthetic for Joe Kilpatrick, RN

My name is Joe Kilpatrick and I am a registered nurse.  I underwent cardiac by-pass surgey on January 28th of this year.  I sustained a very bad reaction to medications I was given which left me with a amputated left and right hand and partial amputations of both feet.

My insurance company has denied my claim for myo-electric prosthetics for my hands.     I currently rely on my sister to bathe and feed me.  I would be self-sufficient if I had the proper prosthetics.  My situation is quite urgent and I would greatly appreciate any donation you could give to help me achieve my goal of getting the appropriate prosthetics so I could return to nursing.

Thank you very much for your serious consideration of my request.
