Mr. Dave recovery fund

If you know my dad you know he is a hard worker that can fix almost anything he is the neighborhood mechanic and handyman and everyone knows Mr. Dave .He is a self employed mechanic and handyman, a husband farther and grandfather.

About 7 years ago my day walked in to the ER with a “cold” which turn out to be fluid on his chest he was on a ventilator for about 4 days and in the hospital for about a week he was Diagnosed with Congestive heart failure , but that didn’t stop him he was back working with in 2week since then he has keep up with his health takes his medicine eats better and has away been in shape .

fast forward to about 5 years ago he started to lose the feeling in his right foot and leg the doctors the did a procedure that ran a vein From one leg to the next to get his blood flowing to that leg it worked but it slowed him all the way down, we at that point tried to apply for disability but he one denied , not only was he denied once he was denied twice.

fast forward to about a month ago he went to the doctor to have a routine procedure done to check the function of his heart and they told him his heart was so blocked he need triple bypass surgery he is about three weeks out and now he can’t work again for at least 2 month with this all happening so suddenly he had no time to plan ahead. We are now in the process of applying for disability for the third time but in the mean time that leaves him with out a income.

We are asking for your help to get my dad through this tough time anything you can give would be greatly appreciate it thanks .
