Ryan's Medical/Bills fund

Two years ago I was injured in the line of duty as a member of the USAF (reserves). I had to have surgery to have the injury (a double hernia) repaired. Then last year the hernia recurred and had to be operated on again. Since the last operation, I have been unable to work due to severe nerve pain associated with the surgery. With me unable to work and the Air Force refusing to pay me my wife and I have entered financial hardship. She has been working two jobs for months now but still we are getting closer and closer to losing everything. And the Air Force is still stonewalling us on paperwork and pay despite how dire our situation is becoming. 

I have gone through months of treatments and appointments but have exhausted all options of healing.

Any money that we can raise will immediately go towards paying our bills and keeping food on the table while we fight with the government for the pay that we are owed. 

Our situation is dire. If we don't receive some sort of help in the next few weeks, we may very well end up on the streets. Please, if you can spare anything, it will make a difference in our life. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you if you decide to donate.
