  “US Veteran needs Back Surgery”. The VA will not approve my operation.

I am a former US Marine who is reaching out for assistance in raising funds for my back operation. I have received donations from my family and friends. I am trying to raise 20,000 for replacement surgery via Medicare for two degenerative discsT-3 and T-4. I am determined to make this a successful campaign in order to live a normal life again. I have included my history dealing with the Veterans Administration.

*Our president Donald Trump stated loudly and clearly on national TV, that citizens who died defending our freedoms are “fools and losers”. This has been the sad reality between all Americans and our current Federal government. (Or a fake government!).

The Veterans Administration is not a horrible Federal Agency. However, in the pasted two years, an investigation of the VA revealed a systemic pattern of problems ranging from Secretary of the VA’s alleged holiday trip for his family and friends to Europe to attend a tennis championship. In addition, there were fresh accusations of falsified  waiting list and a system wide failure to discipline employees.

When I enlisted in the Marine Corps in 1963. My dear father, a veteran of WWII told me, “Whatever you do don’t go to the VA for anything”. He was loving and wise man.

The Veterans Administration will not approve my back surgery. I will need home care to recover from the surgery. I will not be able to drive my car. Or prepare my food. It is expensive. I need your help. I tried to live a good life. I do not want to live the rest of my life as a crippled old man. I am not done. I have extensive medical records.

I had treatments for my back pain from the VA over the pasted 2 years. They included an MRI, 2 rounds of physical therapy, chiropractic treatments, EKG, EEG, and two rounds of facet nerve blocking injections in my spine. They were all “VA band aids”. The medications were garbage. The VA treatments did nothing for my daily back pain. They denied this kind of procedure to save disability money. VA doctors do not want to be put on “watch list” because they authorized a major medical treatment for a senior age veteran. They prefer to delay and delay treatments. The veteran will need additional medical care after a back surgery.  (After 4-year battle, I finally received my Marine Corps service-connected disability in 2010). They think veterans are a second-class citizens. They prefer that the Veteran dies, so they will save more disability money. Do not forget the 40 Veterans who died at the Phoenix, AZ VA Regional Hospital. (This is just one major example.) They were put on a secret do not contact list. They were not contacted to receive their needed medical care. After they died. The VA claimed that the sick veterans died while waiting for medical care. The administrators will receive higher-performance bonus money from the VA as an award. For shame, Veterans Administration. They should have been charged with manslaughter.

It is difficult for me to stand up straight, make my bed or do laundry without having to take a break because of my intense back pain. Once I strain my back. I will be in more intense pain for the rest of the day. This life has become very depressing for me. 

I need to raise $20,000. I am hoping that our community will be able to help me. Donations can be sent to me via my email "" via Pay Pal, Personal Check or via Zelle at the Bank of America or Wells Fargo. Address: 453 W. El Norte Pkwy #108. Escondido, CA 92026. Cell: 760-214-3499.  (I believe your donation is tax deductible). I can make your donation confidential if you prefer. Thank you very much.
