    Speaking only for myself, but knowing Andy as a personal friend, I can only say how grateful I am to see so many step up and make donations. Everything and anything will help. He is in pain, he can't work, and he is stuck in bureaucratic delays that are preventing his much needed disability pay to kick in.

    Amazing when you hear of all of the fraud and ridiculous cases, then you hear of someone in actual need and it takes over a year to even get the case to a hearing. What good is it if the people that need it can't even get help in time for it to be useful?

    Iím simply amazed at the support, well wishes, and prayers. It amazes me, Iím beyond grateful. Itís been ridiculously stressful, and all the folks whoíve come together to help is astonishing. The gofundme was my absolute last resort, only after a friend talked me into it. I never thought in a million years anybody would take the time to care. Plus, the thought that I canít do it on my own was completely humbling. Iíve worked and made my own spending money from 11-18 working as a paper boy, to fast food, to a gas station. Then at 18 I started my railroad career working 70-80 hours a week for my first 8 years. Followed by a more reasonable schedule of 60 hours a week, and finally to a half normal 40-50 hour week.

    Its a crazy situation, every service Iíve applied for, Iíve beeb denied, as they base your need off of your last years income. And the RRB (like SS), says disability claims should take 110 days to a decision on all their paperwork. Yet over the phone they tell me itís at least 9-12 months to an initial decision. And since itís like SS, 85% or so, claims are denied on the first round. If denied, Iíll have to get a lawyer, and the second round takes 3-6 months. Itís a very long process. Itís pretty disheartening, but the support Iíve received really helps alleviate some of the stress.

    Iíd like to thank everyone once again. Even sharing the link on social media if youíre unable to contribute financially helps immensely.

    Donation made. I don't spend much time in the Break Room but am glad I looked in today. Any chance of getting this wider exposure on INGO?

    I'm sure he would appreciate if you would spread it around. Some have spread it to facebook and other forums too.
