Lex-Care: Injured contractor needs $250

Ashley Gray, a case manager at Lifeline Home Health Care, submitted a request to Lex-Care on behalf of a client who needs $250 to pay for medical supplies.

Her client is an independent construction contractor who suffered a broken foot while at work. Treatment involved the amputation of some of his toes. He was released from the hospital to recover at home, but not to return to work. Because he is not eligible for workers' compensation, he is without income and has depleted his savings to cover his living expenses. When he can work again he will be able to manage on his earnings with no difficulty.
