Jacob Haendel’s Recovery Fund
Throughout my journey toward recovery over the last 3 years, I have progressed through hours of dedicated hard work and amazing care from healthcare professionals, famil, and friends. Now I am able to communicate and move, but my hands and body shake uncontrollably and I have trouble speaking, swallowing and performing every normal daily task.
As of December 2020, I am now able to live independently and begin function in the world again. I want to share my story about overcoming addiction and surviving a terminal progressive disease. My hope is to motivate others who may be facing any challenges in life and inspire people going through all types of recovery. It’s been a long road and there are plenty more miles ahead of me, but I have made amazing progress and am looking forward to a full recovery.
Since moving home, I have relied on the funding from family, friends, insurances and various homecare programs to support myself. Unfortunately, I am out of funds and am struggling to keep myself properly cared for and I am worried that without the amazing care I currently receive, I won’t be able to recover. I need to raise $170,000 to cover the costs of living as well as my daily medical expenses and the 24-hour care assistance I require for my recovery for the next year.
