Have no income due to medical issues

Hello, I’m a Cold War veteran that is dealing a dozen or so medical conditions, some due to the Chernobyl radiation fallout that occurred over Europe where I was stationed.


I am on an appeal with the Veterans Administration and Social Security.


Any amount will be helpful. I have never really asked for help in my entire life of 53 years old and always helped others so this is new to me and sorry for this. Thank you so much for any assistance you can offer.


My medical conditions have increased to 14. Furthermore, I also lost my job while in short-term disability and haven't been able to work since. Please donate any amount if you can.
Thank you and God Bless and from our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Well, the VA denied another of my claims! Have to appeal that claim now. I now have a Social Security hearing in early July. Hoping for the best. Hasn't been easy for me. Thank you and God Bless.

As we get closer to the end of the year, I want to thank those who have donated... you are a blessing! I am still waiting for social security/VA claims and can be a drain on me. Donate if you can, if not, it's okay. God Bless and Merry CHRISTmas.

Nothing has changed. Put in for SS on August 7... been waiting all this time to find out that "I" didn't do it right. Did they call me? NO! So I finally got a hold of SS and have an appointment on Nov. 3. Long-term disability with my previous employer, who knows when they will make up their minds.
