My name is Philip Sokol and I am 25 years old and have Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. I was born in Texas and was diagnosed at the age of 4 and moved to Florida when I was 8 years old. This progressive disease has taken many things away from me and continues to be a struggle in my life each and every day. I am currently on a ventilator and have a feeding tube to eat my meals & have been this way for about a year and a half. Most recently, the economy has taken a toll on my family and has caused the house my father is building for us to be delayed in getting built. At this moment in time, my dad, who is 65 years old, is the only one that works on the house in between trying to support our family and pay for caregivers since the state offers barely any assistance for my disability. My mother works part time at a group home for the mentally challenged and cares for me full time. When she isn’t working she takes care of me hand and foot, all the while making many sacrifices and giving me the best possible care. I am unable to do anything for myself and require someone to be with me 24 hours a day. Some of the things that I need help with include bathing, brushing my teeth, going to the restroom, scratching my ear and even just repositioning when needed. I am trying to reach out to anyone willing to help, but I am not sure how much longer my parents can keep moving at the pace they are currently at, they are getting older and of course are limited by many things, including finances, that are the reason for the delay in putting a roof over my head. If you can make a small donation to help me live a good life, well what’s left of it anyways, and help relieve some of the tears & stress my parents are going through right now, it would make my day and bring me much joy and happiness to be able to have a roof over my head and help my parents as much as they have sacrificed and done for me. I pray each and everyday that God will answer my prayers and help my family. www.SupportPhilip.com
