Because of your funding, my wife�s mammogram copayment will be fulfilled. We are one step closer to obtaining a sense of stability with the accumulation of bills since the time I have taken off work due to my Multiple Sclerosis flare-ups and major depressive disorder in addition to PTSD. We are most grateful for the assistance. Unfortunate experiences contributed to my conditions, but as proud as I am to having served our country, our faith in humanity is restored because of instances like these. Thank you.

Help Veteran Family Afford Medical Test Co-Pay

My Story:

I am a proud Army Veteran who is married with two boys, ages 4 and 2. My boys are extremely active and love playing in our yard. My wife is a former office manager and concierge. She is now a stay-at-home mom to raise our boys and devote herself as my caregiver. I work full-time as House keeping Director at the Veterans Home in New York. I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2017, after suffering two seizures. This disease manifested over several years. The progression of my untreated disease has affected me immensely; from worsening my service connected-disabilities of PTSD, major depressive disorder and migraines. These past two years have been extremely stressful to say the least.

I took time off in 2018, due to the increased pain and depression from my condition. Those two months caused bills to accumulate as I awaited a new position. My credit score plummeted and we used credits cards just to buy the basic necessities. We absolutely have no savings and are living paycheck to paycheck right now. My wife and boys are homebound everyday that I am at work as I have the family's only transportation. As you can see, we have no extra funds right now. We need your help with the cost of the co-pay for my wife's mammogram.

This funding will absolutely help in restoring our sense of stability. We moved from a neighborhood with poor quality education, drugs and violence and we want to continue to have a stable environment for our kids. They deserve to live in a safe neighborhood and have the basic necessities covered. Your help will be much appreciated.
