I've Given My All And Now Need Help

I'm a Fiancee', a Father to two incredible Sons and 3 Fur Babies and a  Disabled Vet. I left the U.S. Army with a spinal injury that caused an end to my personal fight for America and it's Citizens. I was born to save lives, fight for injustice and spread smiles everywhere possible. I became a Combat Medic in 1987 at the age of 17, after I was deemed unable to serve I dedicated my life to the souls that suffer so greatly from Cancer and had a very long and wonderful career running Oncology Laboratories, and directly participating in the care of children, adults and the elderly. Prior to May of 2016 I was still able to work and provide for the Family I love so much. Unfortunately my condition had progressed so seriously that if I made one wrong move I was risking paralysis from my neck down and I was forced to undergo immediate aggressive treatment. Since that diagnosis I've had four major surgeries on my neck, back and rt arm in the last year including both Cervical and Lumbar Spinal Fusions w/ accompanying complications. I am unable to work for the foreseeable future during the healing process, 1-2yrs at least and will never be able to return to my career, or utilize my other skills as I'm also a Machine Repair Tech and Electrician. My condition is progressive and I will  have to endure further surgeries after I heal. The VA has canceled my benefits citing that my current condition is "work related" and they're no longer responsible to cover me. I had private cobra insurance through my employers that has now run out, and I cannot afford to buy new insurance due to my inability to pay. I'm fighting to have my benefits reinstated and raised, and have applied for SSI and SSDI, but the fight is very long and I'm in need of help now. I cannot cover the physical therapy or any additional surgeries necessary, and due to my situation am now having serious trouble covering even daily expenses. My Family has taken wonderfully great care of me and helped as much as they possibly can, but it's trying times for everyone and I need to do something to ease the stress this has put on them, that's why I've come to you. and the country I love so much, worked so hard for and given my soul to. I'm asking for any help anyone can provide to cover medical expenses and help w/ daily living , and if the souls that can help are numerous enough I'm hoping to raise enough to cover the monthly cost of the medical insurance I need to continue the treatment I need in order to lead a decent life, work and provide for my Family and my country.  If required by anyone, I'm willing and able to show proof of my condition, the surgeries, and Social Security and VA denials. Anything anyone can give, the smallest amount or even spreading this campaign to everyone you know is greatly appreciated, and you can rest assured it will be payed forward whenever and wherever possible as I've always done.
With all my heart, Thank You  All Sincerely and God Bless, Danny.
