I have no income coming in

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 and I am losing wages due to being out of work so many times this year and just need a little bit of help in recovering some lost wages so far since January 1, 2017.

I am on an appeal with the Veterans Administration.

Any amount will be helpful. I have never really asked for help in my entire life of 51 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.

Thank you and God Bless and from our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Updated: 7/30/2017: As of now, I have no income coming in. My Long-term disability was denied by the claims company due to their fault and is on appeal.  Any amount will help me.

Update: 10/29/2017: 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. Argh

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.

I applied for Social Security... denied! I put in a reconsideration and their reasons were off base and denied again! Tiredness, fatigue, stomach issues and pain means nothing to SS! Donate what you can.

I'm down to my last $3000 and need more help. I'm still waiting for Social Security whenever that will be. If you have already donated, you don't need to again as I appreciate what you have done. But please share everywhere. God Bless.
