Aid for an Old Treasure Hunter

$820 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 19 people in 41 months
I'm John Redman and I'm trying to get help for my old friend Dell Winders, an old treasure hunter who is going thru a difficult time. He has helped many others in the past and now in his time of need he could use his own helping hand. Here is a plea he put out, please read it and help if you can. Thanks,
John

An Act of Desperation: 

I never in my life ever thought I would be reduced to a beggar but a long series of unfortunate circumstances has me begging for public help without no other options left. It's humiliating to say the least. I hope I am not offending any one with this appeal for help. If so, I sincerely apologize.

I live alone and am bedridden, making it difficult to fend for myself at this point in my life. Hopefully, it is only temporary. I do not have money for food, medical supplies, utilities, or pay any of my bills. Consequently, bank overdrafts and late fees every month have/are taking a financial toll I can't overcome during my present status.

I've tried hard to tuff it out alone but have reached the failing point. I have lost 108 lbs as a result of not eating. This has led to additional health complications via the domino effect.

I receive $30 a month in welfare Food Stamps and I recently have "Meals on Wheels" and Trudy, my invalid wife, has sent me ( 2) $50 food gift cards which although not enough to feed me, have helped greatly. I am very grateful! I've gained back 3 lbs, and the pain has eased enough for me to partially sit up enough in bed to use this laptop.

Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining about my situation. There are too many in this world who are worse off than I am. That is life, and I do love life. But, If there is any one reading this that can afford to help me in my own time of need, I am very grateful for your consideration.

Many Thanks!
Dell
