My name Edward V Hicks, I have been diagnosed with heart and kidney failure. The doctors say it is hyper tension and my blood pressure is completely abnormal. My weight is causing multiple spikes in my pressure and it's killing me. I'm currently Under Disability SSI and receive $500 a month. Yet, my disability will not cover a weight loss surgery. Which will soon turn into a kidney surgery to which neither one can I afford. I am in desperate need of help. So as I stand here with no options left. A friend suggested I try my hardest to get a grant. The doctors are greatly worried about my health, but now there is nothing they can do to help me. This is going on for more than a year. And with no insurance and losing my job due to my sickness. My hospital bills are piled up greatly. The government would not cover my Bills due to the fact my ex-wife made a significant amount of money. She, wanting nothing to do with me anymore divorce me. So I am in desperate need of help. I am looking for $350,000 to $450,000 thousand to help me cover my surgery and help me with my hospital bills. I throw myself to the mercy of your compassion, please help me save my life.
