I used to be a strong fun loving guy, worked hard and played hard, I guess I played too hard and got menengitis, I manage to fuction somewhat but my eyesight was messed up from the menengitis and my medical bills ran above 100,000. I have a 4 year old boy who doesnt know how much his dad suffers but I try hard to not let him know.  Considering everything I have managed to provide for him, Im in horrible debt but I figure Im still alive which they didnt think would happen.  I thank god for that, Im not really expecting much from this, any contributions would help us but just saying hi would help too.  You can donate and recieve a bumper sticker which is shown in my photo section, hopefully you can donate 5.00 to cover the cost for the sticker.  Thanx Dave

I read alot of these posts and it is so sad, everybody needs what this page cant provide...food clothing housing...Im sure we can all look it up for ourselves but getting it is the problem...services are limited for everyone unless you know so and so who knows so and so in communities...its easy to provide a link and say here ya go...doesnt help when the power company is turning off the power. I think most come here thinking someone will help them here..like I mean really help...it doesnt happen, its just the way it is....the people here are here that need help not here to help. It is a strange thing here...Ive had a page here since 07 I see and nope...nobody has come to help...but I really wouldnt expect them too...it just doesnt work that way. My point is this seems to be a bit misleading "Aidpage" maybe change it to "Crisis Advice page" seems to be a bit more fitting and truthful...

Yes I understand the culture shock. I moved from Oregon to Tennessee when I was 20. It was like moving to a new country

Hi there. I saw that you had visited my aidpage. Thanks for your interest. I don't know what help I can be but I wonder if the hospital where you incurred the bills would perhaps make some financial assistance available to you, in your situation. I believe there are funds available for extreme cases that can be accessed from the credit department of most hospitals. I know a friend of mine once got help from something called the Hale Burton Fund. I think that was what it was called. It is worth a call to the local hospital. I will keep you and your little guy in my prayers and please keep my family in yours also. Thanks for taking your time to look at my page. Stephanie
