My son, Adam received a traumatic brain injury in December of 2014, when he was hit by a rock that came through the windshield. Our hope was that he would be self-sufficient by now, but that is not the case. Although he is doing well considering, he is unable to work. His left side is as if he had a stroke, with no use of his left hand or arm; his left leg is not able to support his weight nor to allow him to walk more than a few steps. In addition, his reading comprehension is affected, so that he can see words but not compute the understanding. He has always been self employed, so does not receive any social security nor any disability.
He purchased his home eight months before the accident, with the intent of gutting it and restoring the inside, where it was totally trashed from the previous owners and from multiple cats that were allowed to have their "own room" as their litter box. He began the demolition inside, in spare time around running his construction business. But the home has been left unfinished, with the wind blowing through unsided walls, the handicapped toilet never installed, etc.
His name is on his mortgage deed with another person, who threatens to sell the home out from under him if he cannot pay the full mortgage amount each month. He has kept up with payments, however cannot go on with the stress of trying to make ends meet, feed his family, etc. He has two small children that live with him: his six year old step daughter to be, and a five month old son, and his financee, who is also his caregiver.
The stress of the fear of losing his home is causing a mental breakdown, and honestly causing his physical condition to deteriorate. I feel helpless to help him, where I basically live week to week.
He needs a handicap toilet installed into his bathroom. He needs siding finished on a few areas of his home. He needs finishing work done inside, so that as the baby begins to crawl, there will not be any open sockets, etc. But in truth, he needs to raise enough money to pay off the partner that is on the deed, and that is causing him so much mental harm.
His mortgage is approximately $84,000. With the repairs and finish work needed in the home, it will all come close to $100k. We are in the process of applying for any type of disability assistance, but are told it can take up to six months. The mortgage partner will sell the house out from under him by then, and threatens to even start the process within months of not paying his monthly payment of $800.
Would you donate to help Adam make it through the next few months until disability assistance comes through?
Every penny will make a difference.
One hundred thousand people giving $1.00 would do it.
Twenty thousand people giving $5.00 would do it.
Ten thousand people giving $10.00 would do it.
Five thousand giving $20.00 would do it.
All one-time donations, but all adding up to an incredible cause for a life and family.
