I am fundraising as a solution for the financial crisis I am having due to heart problems specifically Atrial Fibrillation. I passed out while driving. My car crashed. I cannot keep my job because of the accident.
I want to thank you for your kindness and support. I can’t express how it makes me feel knowing that you took the time to reach out and lend a hand
when I needed it most. I am truly blessed. Thanks again.
Tommorow is my follow up visit to the cardiologist. I will receive an EKG which should confirm that my heart is continuing to function in sinus rhythm. I feel better than I have in months so my expectation is a thumbs up from my MD. I will update again after my visit. Peace and love to you from rural Dahlonaga, Georgia.
This past Thursday I had the cardio version procedure to put my heart back into sinus rhythm. There were some complications before the procedure so I was kept in the hospital for a night afterwards in order to have several tests. After the tests were done I was told that the procedure was successful and believe me I can feel the difference. I feel like a man 25 years younger. I didn't realize how poorly I had been feeling because my heart had been out of rhythm for about 5 months. I had grown accustomed to this state.
I have a follow up appointment in about a week and hopefully my heart rhythm will still be in sinus rhythm. Again, I want to thank you for your kind support and I humbly encourage you to share this crowdfunding page with anyone you may think would become a supporter. I have reached 60 percent of the goal. Reaching the goal would allow for transportation and living expenses until I find employment now that I feel normal again. Job hunting with a chronic health problem at 55 was not a formula for success. Thank you and please be well.
I am about a week away from the heart procedure that should stabilize my health. I am looking forward to feeling better and not being dependent on several pills daily. In my last update I told you about my youTube page and the numbers needed to become a youTube partner. I thank you for your help in that department. I went from 250 subscribers to over 500 thanks to you! At this growth rate I could be eligible within three to six months. I also want to thank you for helping me reach almost sixty percent of my fundraising goal.
Upon reaching the goal I will then have enough to get transportation, a job that I can do from home and funds that will sustain me through the month of December. This experience has taught me humility and gratitude in a profound way. Again I thank you for your kindness and understanding.
While I have been homebound and out of work recovering I started a Youtube channel built around music. I had dabbled in video editing when I was in college and decided that I would try and turn some of my musician friends songs into videos for YouTube. Much to my surprise those videos have garnered over 10,000 views in just 90 days.
In order for me to become a full time content creator for YouTube I need 1000 subscribers and 4000 hours of watch time. Right now I have 265 subscribers and 150 hours of watch time. I have 9 months to reach those numbers on YouTube.
If you like the videos below please like, subscribe and share them with a family member or friend. Unfortunately my health issues have brought me to this place. I do not think I will be able to return to the hospitality industry because of my heart, yet I feel more fulfilled creating for Youtube than I have ever felt before doing any work. I was a theater major in college and I am a former radio personality and pro bass player. I always thought the hospitality industry would be an option if needed, but no more. Again, click on the links, like, subscribe and share. This would be so helpful to me and I would be so very grateful for the support. Thank you for taking the time to read this. I know that your time is precious.

First I want to thank you for your help. Your generosity I most appreciate and feel grateful for the assistance. I am trying to find a work from home job at the moment but I am not having much luck. I have reached just under 40 percent of my fundraising goal which will help set things back in order in my life. Reaching the goal of $5000 will pay rent and allow me to find a basic automobile which will allow me to find work once the cardiac procedure is done in a few weeks and my heart rate returns to normal. I have been cleared to drive finally.
If you can forward this campaign to friends or family that might want to contribute it would be most appreciated. Fundraising this way has been a lesson in humility for me. I did not ever see myself in this situation. I have never had a car accident before not even a fender bender. It has all been such an adjustment made even more difficult by not having friends or family in the area.
I have come to terms with my health situation and I am doing what I can to make the best of it. Thanks to you it is getting better! Peace to you my friend.
