My name's Katie Bradshaw and I want to thank you for reading this. If nothing else, I appreciate you taking the time to hear me out. 

I have a wonderful man in my life and he's going through a living hell right now. His name is Anthony Jaime and he's stuck in this toxic and abusive environment with a real chance of severe illness and homelessness to boot. I want to help him in any way that I can and want to get him to NY where I live. 

To do this, he needs to get himself and his possessions here. And in the meantime, get much needed food and update his state ID so that he can get services (SNAP, rent and job assistance, basic transportation {bus pass} and other necessities) I'm trying to help him as much as I can, but my income is limited and I'm on aid myself. 

Anthony is a kind and compassionate man and it breaks my heart to see him being abused by the family that he loves. They starve him, steal and destroy his few possessions, and tear him down at any opportunity. He's diabetic, has severe back and knee issues and has issues with mobility. He's struggled to get back into college and into local aid programs, with little success. The family member who he lives with - along with her other cruelties to him - intends to sell the house soon and leave him homeless. 

This is a man who deserves a second chance, he's incredibly intelligent and has dreams of starting his own business one day and helping others as well. I know he wants to do serious good in the world and I'd like to help him do just that. 

Thank you for listening.

P.S. Anthony also wants to offer some perks - his way of saying thank you for your time and help...he's already picked out the cake flavor for the personal holiday.
