This was when I received the worse news I believed anyone could get. While serving in the Army, stationed at Fort Sam Houston Texas, I was diagnosed with cancer, osteo sarcoma, bone cancer.
After 18 months of chemotherapy and 2 successful bouts over the course of 3 years, and losing my right leg to this cancer, I was informed by my oncologist that I only have a few months left. The osteo sarcoma has spread again and is now in my heart. There really is nothing more that the oncology team can do.
My wish is to return home to Upstate New York to see family and friends and spend the time I have left with them.
I'm asking for your help because the financial stress of the pandemic has made the idea of going home nearly impossible.
My son would like the opportunity to go on this cross county final adventure by vehicle so that he can stop and see national parks and land marks during the trip. Michael has always wanted to travel the US to some extent and see the sights. This is truly his last chance.
I simply, as Mom, want to see his final wishes granted.

In 2019 our ranch was badly vandalized while I was in Texas building a home for my mother. Our cabin, RV, ranch truck, fencing, solar system, and barn were all stolen or demolished. The losses are in excess of $20,000. On our ranch we were self sustaining and producing more food than we could eat ourselves so we started providing meal kits for homeless veterans and in need veteran families. With the number of homeless veterans at an all time high and growing daily this was our way of giving back to our veteran brothers and sisters. After the vandalism there is no way we can financially rebuild on our own and are asking for help from others. Any monies donated would go to rebuilding our ranch so we can get back to a place where we can give to those who are unable to provide for themselves.
Reel Warriors Foundation takes combat and disabled Veteran's out on a day and a half deep sea fishing charter where everything but the travel to the port.

Disgruntled Vets has found a new mission. There is an Air Force Radar Base available for sale in California and we would like to purchase it with the intent of creating a home base for our organization and be able to home veterans. We need all members of Disgruntled Vets to donate $7 to make this possible.
*Disclaimer* This money will be actually donated to the DV Farm, a non-profit organization in New Hampshire that rehabilitates homeless veterans.
My name is David H King and I am a 21 year Army veteran and I served in Vietnam '69'70. I suffer from complications due to Agent Orange.
In hopes of raising funds to help my daughter meet her medical bills and prescription drugs that she needs to live such as the anti-rejection and immune meds, I am asking for your help so she may have a normal life and not worry about the bills. My wife, Paula, and I do the best we can to support her through these tough times, but as a 100% disabled vet, I am only able to help somewhat with monetary assistance whenever possible, but not longer physically able to help her with the upkeep of her home that I had promised her to do.
I hope you can find it in your heart to donate any amount. Please consider she is still a young woman, only 43. She was married last year on Halloween and her husband, Lee, does take care of her as much as he can. The photo is that of Laura, my daughter, after her kidney transplant. Also a photo of me from 2004, before I had cancer in my lungs, which metastesized to the brain, diabetes, copd, 5 heart attacks, 7 stents, pacemaker/defib, blood clots, heart disease, etc. Photos now I don't like because of being on immunotherapy.
All of these things that I have mentioned about Laura and me can be proven. Laura was employed as a 911 dispatcher for the Fort Myers PD for almost 10 years. Laura had her transplant last year on 17 February 2019. She has recovered very well. The bills are insurmountable and it seems like there is no end in sight. She is also legally blind which deters her from getting hired for work. Her health insurance is very expensive as are her medications.
In light of COVID-19, many veteran in the US are falling on hard times, Disgruntled Vets would like to sponsor the funds for one Veteran's emergency financial assistance.

COVID-19 is adding extra stress on all of our health services and first responders. Kent County’s dispatch is second to none and could use a “Thank You.” Let’s raise $500 to provide a catered meal for these unsung Heroes.
The Johnson-Brower Foundation is raising funds to purchase and donate a medical grade LED Red Light Therapy unit to a disabled veteran suffering from chronic back pain.
For over two years now Johnson-Brower Foundation has donated these LED Red Light therapy units to any and all Hero who is in need. Not only is this therapy effective, it also is a healthy alternative to pain medication.
As a service to our amazing First Responders and Veterans, this nest egg will allow me to provide free initial sessions to our Heroes! If you have a specific Hero you would like to donate towards, please email that request to me. It is my honor to serve. Together, we create change, one life at a time!
I am a 100% service-connected disabled veteran who takes care of my elderly mom, who contracted the virus. Because I have limited income, we live check to check. we have incurred massive hospital bills related to her treatment but thankfully she has survived but I had to do a forbearance of my mortgage and clean out the savings to cover the cost. I have tried every avenue of help with no results. When my forbearance is done, my mortgage payment will be 7,000. I also need to replenish my savings which is 3,000. I really need help and appreciate all the donations we can get.
We are trying to raise enough money for 1 fishing trip with VetCatch so a Vet can escape the CoronaVirus and relax.
VetCatch is a Florida born organization dedicated to using fishing and boating to focus on physical and mental healing for our disabled veterans. We are committed to restoring a sense of self through positive connections, outdoor adventure, and relieving stress on the open water.
Disgruntled Vets would like to honor Richard Jones, a Police Officer who saved a Suicidal Veteran. Not just any Vet but a DV. In early 2018, in Pueblo, CO, officer Jones arrived on scene to a report of a man with a gun. Jones immediately identified the man as a veteran, and a fellow fan of DV. In a situation where deadly force was not only authorized, but appropriate, officer Jones used this common ground to establish rapport with the man, and spent several minutes talking the man down. Officer Jones embodies the qualities of a veteran, and saved our brother's life.
We would like to present him with: -New police gear -A custom flag from U.S. Veterans Woodwork -And if we raise enough money donate the rest to 22 Until None
