Stanley Welshan Medical Bills

Hello.  My name is Stanley Welshans.  I am 55 years old, married, with twin  teen boys.  I am raising money to help offset my medical costs.  I have become legally blind, and am unable to drive or work since May of last year.  I have undergone numerous surgeries.  In 2017 my left retina detached.  I had it reattached, however the damage caused, left me unable to see any type of details.  In 2018, I developed a hole in my right foot and had to have a toe amputated.  Later that year, I had to have cataract surgery on both eyes, along with laser surgery on my left eye to remove scar tissue.  In 2019 the retina in my right eye detached.  I had surgery to reattach it, but the vision in that eye is the same as in my left eye, unable to see any type of detail.  I still need another surgery in my right eye, to remove the oil they put in there to help the retina stay attached after surgery, which I can not afford.  My eye surgeon left me know that I am getting glaucoma in my left eye, and need to get a shot in my eye every three months, at a cost of about 1200 dollars per shot. 

I   was the main source of income for our household, but have not been able to work since May of 2019.  I have drained all of the money  I had put back, including money for my boys to go to college or trade school.  Not only am I behind on medical bills, but I am behind on my rent, and facing being put out of my home.  My family is in dire need of help.  

Some background on myself.  I have been involved in Public Safety serving various communities since the age of 16 .  Being a volunteer firefighter and EMT.  I went on to become a Paramedic  and then went into being a 911 Telecommunicator and Dispatcher, becoming a 911 Supervisor prior to my illness.  

Any help is greatly appreciated in this time of need.
