Larry White

Hello my name is Larry White and I work for Environmental Services as a Compliance Officer.  I have established a Medical Leave Bank because I have exhausted all my leave time.  I am in need of about 300 hours and I need of your assistance.  In August- 2020 I was rushed to the hospital because my body began to shut down on me.  Within a matter of hours my activities of my body including the ability to speak was shut down.  After 7 days I was allowed to come home but my ability to walk and stand was greatly affected.  The overload on my body has caused other elements to surface and I need time to allow the doctors to help me gain my strength back and figure out exactly what has happen.   Whatever time you can donate to me will greatly be appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

Deborah Flores

I’m in need of assistance and hope that you will be able to contribute some of your leave time. Any hours donated is greatly appreciated, my son as well as my family thank you immensely.

I have established a Medical Leave Bank for my 5 year old son. He started with severe colds/fevers at the beginning of this year that lead him into having pneumonia. I have exhausted my leave due to his appointments with his regular physician as well as appointments with radiology; resulting a lot of care and treatment to heal from this unexpected illness. Due to the restrictions from his physician, I have to stay home with him even when he experiences a slight cold or cough to prevent him from having a relapse, a high fever can also lead into a Febrile Seizure which he has experienced in the past.

Michael Mosco

Hello my name is Michael Mosco. I work for the SDPD crime lab. Recently my 5mo old daughter has been diagnosed with a condition that causes periodic infantile spasms (mini seizures) that requires constant monitoring and medication, especially now in the beginning weeks of the diagnosis. I have started to take time off and have interchanged paid time and unpaid time off. Very soon I will not have banked paid leave but will still need FMLA time off to care for my daughter and take her to her variety of follow up appointments over the course of the next year and beyond. Any leave that someone may want to donate will go a very long way in helping our family through this difficult time. Thank you and God bless.

Olivia Garner

Hello, my name is Olivia Garner. Last summer I was in a bad car accident that put me out of work intermittently throughout the year. I’ve suffered a lot of back pain, joint pain, nerve damage and had a concussion for a couple months, among other things. Rehabilitation has been difficult. I’ve used up all of my leave and have been doing a lot of authorized leave without pay during the year and only receiving about half my paychecks. I’m currently nine months pregnant and my doctors took me off work 5/31/19. I still have a whole other month to wait for my baby to arrive and am currently without a paycheck. Anything will help. 

Lina Hosmi 

I'm a PEA work with PW ROWD, I had an accident and broke my left knee and right toe, I had to have a surgery on my knee that it leads me to be on a wheel chair for 3 months, after I submitted my Dr. request I wasn't approved for disability leave because I was still in probation period, also the state doesn't pay us for disability, I didn't have that much time off because I was just back from maternity leave and I already used all what I had left for the surgery time, I'm requesting my coworkers help to donate me any time off they can, I'll take any amount of time because it will still help me out in healing process, that is also required me to go do physical therapy twice a week for a long time. Thank you.

Hello Fellow MEA Members, I am reaching out at this time for any medical leave donations that are available so that I can be able to travel back and forth to Northern California for a surgery my daughter is having in February that has a 6-8 week recovery time frame.
