I have been forced to change careers due to work injuries. Any help is greatly appreciated.


I never imagined myself doing something like this but after eight years as a cook in the NYC fine dining world I have been forced to change my career path due to many severe injuries.
I have several degraded disc's in my upper and lower back, I also had the tendons in my left index finger completely severed in an accident at work, now my hand will never work the same. Along with many other work related injuries. I have been forced to return to college at age 28.
To accomplish this I had to move in with my parents whom are retired. I am going to college full time, working part time but the bills keep piling up, I cannot even afford to go to the DR. for the many health related issues I am facing. I cannot afford the medication I need on a daily basis. This forced career change may be a blessing, but the process is a financial disaster. I am asking for your help, anything you can donate is wonderful and greatly appreciated. I know I am not the only one going through this, but if you are able to help me accomplish my goals of getting my health issues resolved and getting a new education and into a new career, I am greatly appreciative and extremely thankful!!
