Rebuilding Kissy

Hello.  My name is Dave Kissinger.  I'm reaching out for some financial assistance due to some medical issues that have happened recently.  I've worked hard all of my life and provided for my family.  My girlfriend has a medical condition which prevents her from being able to work.  She has not yet received any money from disability, which she qualifies for.  We are a single income family and I'm not able to work at this time.  Below, I will explain the incidents which caused my current situation.

Round 1:
On January 19th I suffered a stroke with internal bleeding.  I was also diagnosed with diabetes.  I was in the Hospital for a week, received 5 units of blood until they took care of that problem.  I was not able to work for a total of 20 days while recovering from the stroke.  I returned to work for 2 weeks until the the next incident.

Round 2:
On February 24th I suffered a severe fall.  It was a gorgeous day, nice and warm.  We decided to take the puppies for a walk, our 8 lb puppy Ella and my son Amos's 110 lb Lab Sampson.  We took the dogs as we normally do to the top of the mountain.  On our way back down the mountain we encountered a man on a dirt bike with his dog in tow and not on a leash.  This caused Sampson to try to take off which pulled me down hard.  My face slammed the ground, knocking me unconscious.  I was left unconscious, bleeding, with my girlfriend, her daughter, and the dogs by my side.  Her daughter called 911  which brought an ambulance to the scene.  They took me to Hershey Med Center, the premier head trauma facility of the area.  Hershey Med discovered I had the following problems:  subdural hematoma with brain injury, broken right wrist requiring surgery with metal plate and 8 screws, broken right orbital bone, broken right maxilla bone, and a broken tooth. 

I am not able to work and the bills are piling up.  I have been waiting on a check from my insurance company, which is only paying a fraction of my wages while I'm off.  Thank God for my girlfriend and mothers help and my families visitations during all of this or I wouldn't be where I am.  It is good to have friends and family like I do, however paying the bills with all this time off is going to be impossible without help.  My finances have been depleted and I am in desperate need of assistance now.  Anything you can do to help is greatly appreciated.  Thanks, and God bless.
