Hi my name is Bob Reynolds.
I started this Campaign to ask for help through extremely difficult times I having due to several disabilities. I have Copd/ Severe Asthma overlap syndrome. I’m on several medicines and monthly injections. I also have been battling osteoarthritis. I recently had to have bone spurs removed from my left shoulder. They caused a full width Rotator cuff tear and bicep tendinitis. I had to have open arthroscopic surgery which they put 5 anchors in and did labral debridement and acromioplasty. I’m still going to physical therapy once a week and get steroid shots for pain. Recently I had my cervical, thoracic and lumbar sections of my spine scanned with xrays, a CT scan and a MRI. They found I have a Closed Nonunion Odontoid Fracture ( broken neck) and severe degenerative disc disease.
This fall I have to have another surgery for a C1-C2 fusion. These problems keep coming one after another and I have been left unable to work. I applied for SSDI on March 15th, 2018. I’m at the hearing level and could be waiting for months before I getting my hearing date. I’ve alredy lost everything I have. I’m barely surviving. I pleading for a hand up through these hard times until I can get my approval and be self sufficient again.
I have many doctors notes stating I’m not able to work and hired a disability lawyer who took my case and don’t charge until approved for benefits. I have no income except help with food from the state and state provided medical insurance. My wife Brenda takes care of my grandson and gets paid $750 dollars a month. He is handicapped and we have to use a big chunk of that money just getting back and forth from his house in gas.
In this present time it’s hard to keep hopeful but with any donations you would be helping me keep a roof over my head and keep me afloat until I get my disability. I worked my whole life and never expected this to happen to me. Now everyday I struggle with breathing and getting around. I have severe pain issues and I’m trying to learn to cope with these problems.
I don’t know what to ask for as I only need help until approval and will end this Campaign when Social Security goes through. So I’ve decided to ask for $5,000.00
Please help today. Be a blessing and lend a hand up if able. Prayers graciously accepted and greatly appreciated
Thank you and God bless,
Sincerely Bob Reynolds
