About this fundraiser

My name is Phill Meekins and I really need your help. I'm usually the last person to admit this and maybe that's apart of the problem - being to prideful. 

It's hard being honest with yourself, but when I look around at my circumstances, choosing vulnerability is my best option. Let me explain what's going on. 

After losing my Mom to diabetes in 2022, my entire life fell apart. She was my world and for many months, my mental health plummeted, making me consider suicide. I felt it would be easier to quit but I never had the guts to go through with it. And to be honest, I'm glad I didn't because im grateful to still be here. 

Well during those dark months, I was unable to work, and leaned on my family to help me sort through my mother's arraignments and Will. Unfortunately, over the next year while I was healing, over $50,000 dollars (the entirety of the money my Mom left me) was “misplaced" with no explanation. Because I was unable to work during this time, this left me with just enough money to make a necessary move away from my family to start over. And for a while, things settled down and I was able to caught my breath. Until I became ill. 

Sometimes going a week without being able to keep food or fluids down, Doctors still don't have a clear diagnosis for me making treatment plans impossible. I feel helpless most of the time and extremely weak in body and spirit. 

I'm on the verge of loosing my home, unable to keep up with my monthly expenses. I don't know where else to turn. Your financial support would help me keep a roof over my head and continue my attempts at getting the appropriate medical care I need. I appreciate anything you have to offer as I am at the mercy of kind hearted strangers like you.
