About this event
My name is Rick, I am an old Army Combat Veteran with severe disabilities. My family and I are suffering with severe financial difficulties while we are in the process of a decision on my claim. My family consists of my wife and my granddaughter. My wife has many medical issues as well. It has been a struggle this past year as I am sure it has been for everyone. My health is getting worse as is my wife’s. I am doing my best to maintain some work but my disabilities sometimes prevent me from doing certain jobs. I have a degenerative bone disease in my neck ( from a past injury ), problem with bowl, condition with lower spine. My wife has diabetes and other medical issues that I would rather not list, as well as I for personal reasons. My BFF, My Buddy, My Pal, my whole reason to keep pushing my body to its limits is my granddaughter. God has blessed me with this gem of a gift, she is my motivation to get up and go every morning. So I am reaching out to whoever reads this for help. They are my world. I am doing everything I can to protect them and have a safe home but I am struggling in this financial battle till the claim comes through. I am currently working with a lawyer who is hoping to have my case concluded this fall in September or October.
Thank you to all for your help and consideration.
What REAL Hope’s take on Rick is: Rick is a veteran who has served our country and deserves anything he needs for protecting our freedom. Unfortunately, most veterans have to jump through hoops to know and obtain the help they need. Rick would honestly give someone his last dollar if you asked for it. He has a heart of gold.
We are assisting Rick to see what other benefits he is eligible for while bringing the community together to get his family into a better financial situation.
We are having music, a few prizes to raffle off including a membership to Gritstone and also Beverages from Morgantown Brewing Company! We hope that you can come and be a part of helping this wonderful family!
