Asking for Community Support

A few weeks ago I submitted the story of the struggle I have been goin through since a work place injury I received in December. I fractured my left hip and have been fighting for my rights since January of this year. I am now hoping for some help to keep me in my home with the lights on. I am a 49 year old B-boro native. 4th generation on my fathers side. I come from a hard working middle class family, brought up to work hard and support your family and community. I have never asked for any hand outs before this happened to me. I am now recovering from my final hip surgery, I had to have my right hip replacement from two years ago revised in February and my left one, the one I fractured at work, was replaced on the 17th of this month.
