I was an entrepreneur with two businesses that was forced to shut down because I was diagnosed with cancer in February 2021. I would go to work today if I could but cancer has disabled me, leaving me unemployable. Meanwhile as a veteran of two military branches, I am doing my best to secure some support from the VA, but this could take awhile if it happens. Currently, I need to meet the basic necessities of life; housing, food, shelter, and other expenses. I chose the amount of $50,000.00 as a good rounded figure to help me stay afloat, and relieve much of the burden of not being able to meet ones expenses. I have been proactive, by living more frugally, and lowering my debt ratio. In brief I ask for a hand up and not a handout. I have faith in the American people that they will respond to just this simple and straightforward request. I am willing to provide documentation from my physicians and oncology doctor at the VA to verify my condition. Thanks in advance for your help.
