For those of you who are interested in donating to the "Get back on track" fundraiser let me tell you about the recipient, my good friend Andy.
Since I have known Andy the past fifteen years I have literally not heard anything negative said to him or even when he was not around; only good things were said of him. I would not know of any good reason someone even could put Andy in a sentence in a negative way or would denigrate his character. If an Andy Szeszycki is a word in the dictionary Andy Szeszycki(N) would be defined as a selfless, caring, compassionate, smart, and hard-working individual that loves his friends and family.
Andy would always be helpful in any way he could. Andy would help you if you were stranded somewhere, help you out with a work situation, put a good word in for you, would always say the right things to cheer you up, give help and advice on a project, or even give up time to help you out and on top of that he is a great family man that loves his wife, Ashley and his step-son Michael.
Since Andy has always been reliable and is not the one who likes to ask for help in return Andy, his wife Ashley, and his stepson Michael need your help. Tragically while working at his job two years ago Andy hurt his back so bad that he can no longer fulfill his job duties or even sit on a chair without feeling agonizing pain.Next is the writing of Andy, who explains the turmoil that he is going through to best get an idea of what he is going through.
I've always been stubborn and take pride in doing things for myself and supporting myself and my needs. I've never wanted or taken anyone's assistance before; But this December will be 2 years that I have been out of work due to my initial back injury, it's been 5 months now since I stopped getting paid by workers compensation because there doctor saw me for 5 minutes and said nothing is wrong with me but 3 MRI's and a bunch of other painful tests later, a spine surgeon said I have multiple herniated discs and pinched nerves.
I've maxed out two credit cards in order to support my family and pay bills. My family and Ashley's family have been helping us pay bills and buy groceries but they can only help so much because they have their own bills to pay. I have been selling my possessions through Craigslist, Letgo and eBay; somethings were important to me but most are replaceable. But now bills are piling back up again and I have run out of opinions; I've been filling out surveys online to try and bring in any amount of money little or big.
This is a terrible and a very emotional time for me! Having people around me takes my mind off of everything; but weekdays are the worst because my son goes to school and my wife goes to work, she has been trying to find a second job but it's been tough to find something that she can handle because she had to put off her carpal tunnel surgery to take care of me and our son. Our puppies are usually good company but sometimes I slip into a deep dark depression and it's hard to shake. I know I have tons of support and that's the best thing that everyone can do for us! I do have a lawyer who is doing everything he can to try and get me back on workers compensation but he said it could take months. I saw my doctor the other day and he finally decided on what kind of surgery I need but the only problem is having to wait on my insurance company to approve it. I have good insurance but they don't want to pay for it because they know I was injured at work and I was on workers compensation!
We will eventually get back on our feet and look back on this in the future and laugh.”
Please help my good friend before it is too late to save his house from foreclosure. He has done so much for others including myself. Any donation would be much appreciative and if you don't have the money keep him in your prayers. Andy and his family would like to give you their thanks for keeping them in your thoughts and consideration.
