Okay, so I have a question. I started a Go Fund Me campaign yesterday. I set the goal at $2500 and myself as the beneficiary. Within an hour, thanks to a very generous old friend, my goal was reached. The campaign was set up because I am going to have to take my son to medical appointments that are 2 hours away from home. My car is 22 years old and in need of some major repairs in order to drive it that distance on the interstate, so at least $1000 is going to go for car repairs. I’ll be missing work to get him to these appointments, so it will also be supplementing my income so that I can pay rent and bills.
I am concerned that since it is because of his medical condition that I made the campaign, he’s going to get shafted somehow. He won’t have access to the money, and he’s not actually going to be benefiting from the money raised, personally.
If I were to raise $100,000 or something crazy like that, it wouldn’t even matter if they took his disability and medical away. I’d just cover his expenses myself.
So, does anyone here know if this piddly $2700 that I raised is going to affect him? Does anyone have any experience with this?
My son’s diagnosis has gone from traumatic brain injury with psychosis to bipolar disorder to schizoaffective disorder. He has a cyst in his brain that is pressing against the left temporal lobe. He is seeing a neurosurgeon next Wednesday about the cyst.
