Hi my name is Robert Wicks I’m 44 years old and I have 4 children. 3 don’t live at home but one does. I have been self employed in the construction industry for 29 years. I’ve never had any coverage of any kind all these years. I really couldn’t afford it, the costs are so high . On the 29th of November I was on a roof fixing a tarp when the worst thing that could happen happened- I fell.
I fell 25 feet to the ground where I broke both my tibia and the fibula just above the ankle the doctors called it a spiral fracture. They rebuilt my leg with two rods a bunch of plates and a handful of screws. The surgeon said it was one of the worst brakes he had ever seen . I will walk with a limp for the rest of my life but I will walk again .
I am bed bound for the next three months if the healing goes the way they hope . Without any coverage I am left broke and will have to live off the charity of family and others . My family are doing everything they can like getting me the things I need help washing me and just the everyday things we all take for granted but the financial burden is too much so this is why I started this gofundme page to try and offset the cost of caring for me.
What really breaks my heart is it’s so close to Christmas and I have nothing for my my little guy he is 4 so he still thinks Santa is coming. He’s been such a good boy all year and hasn’t giving me a bit of trouble so the thought of having to tell him that there really is no Santa and that there isn’t going to be a Christmas this year because I fell off a roof is something I don’t want to have to face maybe with your donations I won’t have to .
The cost of my recovery will be high with feeding me to getting to my appointments and all the other costs that will come with my recovery it’s only been a couple of days and we can already feel how bad it’s going to get if I don’t get some kind of financial help .
Any money that I receive will go directly to the cost of living and to the cost of my recovery . I thank god everyday for the help I got and for the help I will get so please help me give my son the Christmas he deserves and help me get back on my feet. Thank you all and god bless. I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! God Bless.
