Got a photo of me and my 2 oldest daughters, circa 2009.Wish I knew then what I know now.... See More


I am a 54 year old Father of 5. Head of a 6 person household. Medically disabled from 2012. Self employed and uber financially responsible since the age of 14. However, I did not anticipate a chronic viral infection to take me out at such a young age. My medical expenses have been staggering, more than any night mare, you could imagine. Drug/Medical cost's for 2015 exceeded a quarter Million dollars ( I have to reread this part, as I am still in disbelief). My out of pocket share of my meds were over 15,000 dollars this year, and its not even over.... We are broke, my disability ins. and Medicare keep us in our home, Thank God. I am not complaining, nor do I have a "Violin" playing here. Just the facts ma'am.... I just want to be "home" with my Family this year. I have 4 children still living at home with my wife and I. We would be eternally grateful to anyone who would see fit to assist us in this journey. We would like to make it to New England this year ( from Florida ) for the Christmas Holidays. We are planning to drive, would prefer to fly, as it would permit us more time with family, and projected to cost about the same net/net. My wife and I are Happily Married, 15 years and stronger by the day. I do not know if it is allowed, but I may be contacted, for verification, well wishes, or just to talk about this. Thanks for reading this, and may God, or your higher power guide you. Thanks in advance, Jay P. and family
