Anything Helps

Where to begin haha. Well to start off thank you for even viewing this. I am currently going through the toughest year yet and I am never the one to ask for help but right now pride must be put aside. Last year November I was involved in a car accident the day before thanksgiving that changed my life completely. From shoulder surgery, to mental health, to dealing with a a torn back, loosing my car, my job,  along with my physical health being taken from me. Loosing my car has put a great deal of stress on my girlfriends car and it currently doesn't start anymore and needs work from all the wear and tear that has been put on it only having one vehicle. Between trying to recover, switching jobs and dealing with not having medical insurance, plus the probationary periods at the jobs in Las Vegas and not having the funds to travel back home has allowed my disease to worsen. I suffer from a disease called Diverticulitis. For those who don't know what that is (and don't blame you lol) is a disease where pouches develop in the large intestine near the colon. When certain foods such as nuts, seeds, and fried foods enter those pouches they can get caught and cause infections. Because I haven't been able to be seen for my condition it has worsened overtime and I am in the hospital for now recovering with antibiotics. Surgery to either resection my colon or receive a colostomy bag through my stomach is looking like the best option for me in this point in time but only time and healing will determine which option they will go with. Since my condition has worsened and dealing with everything from my car accident, I have went from a healthy 225 to a current 169 pounds as viewed in my pictures. 33586838_1539046743707503_r.jpeg

I recently began a great job in Las Vegas but have been out recovering and may be out for even longer. I am not getting paid during this time and may lose my job if I cannot recover in the time allotted to me which I am extremely grateful for having a supportive company willing to help me out as best as they can. Myself and my girlfriend were keeping this to ourselves but we are expecting a beautiful blessing next year all thanks to god! While me being stuck in San Diego and her being in Las Vegas to not only take care of herself but also the house and all our other responsibilities she will be forced to cover all of our bills and expenses for something that is basically out of our control. We ask for assistance in this tough time while I am recovering. All we ask for is enough donations to help raise $1000 just to cover my half of the bills, fix the car and to allow us to use this time to heal until I am fully back on my feet. We do not ask for much because our goal is not to con or swindle any human being. We truly mean well and ANYTHING HELPS. Wether we only get $50 or we exceed our goal we are grateful for anything that helps us continue to push forward. Even if you cannot assists us financially please keep us in your prayers. Knowing we have people that love us and support us gives us the strength to fight through this. Thank you all and I wish you nothing but blessings and happiness as life has given me regardless of the situation I was in. THANK YOU!!!
