God has humbled me to my knees. I no longer have any pride to prevent me from asking for help, as I have done my entire life. I need help. Please, take a moment to hear my story, and if it's within your heart, and your budget, even if it's a dollar or a share, you're going to be part of helping me change my life.

I've lived a rough life, and through it all, I was always able to overcome on my own and with God's strength. Right now, I need help from my fellow humans.

2023 ruined me. Physically, financially, and mentally. Here's what went down:

  1. I had my 3rd bout of cancer, this time a skin melanoma (previously testicular cancer and lymphnodic cancer).
  2. My wife had an emergency ovarian ER surgery.
  3. A rattlesnake bit my oldest daughter and she almost died.
  4. I had ID Theft occur, and I lost 90% of my retirement (still an open case).
  5. Our home was robbed.
  6. My middle daughter had digestive and mental health diagnoses.
  7. My wife had another surgery
  8. I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety/panic attacks
  9. Our mortgage company was part of a loophole scam, after months of fighting we nearly lost the house, but on loan I was able to save it. They're under investigation.
  10. We had 2 car wrecks, one ice, one hit and run.
  11. Our Car Insurance ripped us off due to a clerical error by the staff, and I lost $6,000.
  12. My body stopped absorbing Vitamin B in a rare condition that throws my nervous system into bouts of hot needle-stabbing pains, leg cramps, stomach and bowel pains, panic attacks, hot flashes, and muscle aches.
  13. I lost my favorite person in the world, my grandma, followed by my other grandfather.
  14. We lost our kitty. :(
  15. Additionally, there have been other issues that arose that are too personal and exposing I cannot list here.

My car has been on the brink of death for about a year, I spent $1500 trying to fix it, and after 3 other mechanics looked at it, they couldn't fix it either.

Between the medical bills, prescriptions, the corporations burning me, and the theft, I lost around 95% of my savings and any extra spending cash/saving cash from paychecks I had. Totaling close to $450,000. I am back to square one where I began 15 years ago, except I have a mortgage already, and 3 children, 2 dogs to feed, love, protect, and provide for now.

My credit, due to all the issues with the mortgage and getting behind on bills, is totally shot. I tried to find a dealership that would even consider a high-interest rate but that's now a new issue I've been working on, rebuilding that back up at least 300 points from where it's at now.

You might think, "Can't he just ask his parents for help?" No, unfortunately. My father died in my arms the year after my first cancer. My mother has not been a part of our lives for over 7 years.

I am not a spender. We travel conservatively usually once a year, like a road trip. I buy clothes as comfortable but inexpensive as I can from deals, sometimes DI for the kids, Walmart-Target, etc.

I've been hit hard, and today, my car stopped working. I need a vehicle. We live in a rural town without public transportation unless me and the kids all walk about 2 miles to the nearest bus stop, and I won't be able to afford Ubers and whatnot.

In my life, over the last 15 years, I've given money away countless times. About $18,000 worth to different people at different times, including supporting 2 different families in foreign countries. I've given a ton of community volunteer work throughout my life, I was even given a plaque once for giving over 500 hours one year. I've never asked anyone ever for help, because I was brought up to take care of my own problems, but I am at my rope's end here.

The reason for the $30,000 is so I can buy a vehicle I can reliably use for me and my family, move things, still help others with, and that is fairly new (I was aiming for a 2022 or a 2023 truck) for longevity. However, I won't be picky, that's just wishful thinking speaking.

I saw I have not 1 but TWO donations and while they're anonymous, I just wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH! Last year was destruction of my life in every way, and I know this is a materialistic campaign but it's needed, and the break I really need in
