I have a number of medical problems that need to be financially addressed and I am not able to do that on my social security income.

Being seventy-four years old is rather tough and it has become evident at that age I might as well accept the fact that no one is going to hire an old man.

The reasons that I am asking for help are these: I have reached an age where I have been put out to pasture. I have prostate cancer, both feet have been broken and the left one is presently broken. Both feet and the fingers of both hands are encumbered with peripheral neuropathy.  I have diagnosed chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, and a ruptured esophagus, which interferes with my ability to swallow food. I am a physical mess.

All these problems, especially the diabetes, need to be financially addressed. Presently I live off social security and a small pension and there is simply not enough monthly income to meet my financial needs. Any help that you could afford me would be greatly appreciated.                                   

On December thirteenth of last year, I had DKA (diabetic keto acidosis) which is right up there with diabetic coma. I came within hours of dying. After I recovered and realized that medical costs was going to be a major problem,  I decided to appeal to Give Forward in an effort to raise monies to help with medical expenses. Last week I found out that I have early arthritis in both knees.


I do not want anyone to give beyond their financial ability. If you can afford a donation of a few dollars, that donation would be greately appreciated.

Thank you.
Tom
