GREELEY, Colo. -- The dedicated wife of a disabled veteran fears a mold problem might be threatening her husband's health.

There is a solution, but it is just out of their reach unless someone can step in and help.

Kathleen Snyder reflects on the moment she met her husband.

“I met Jerry seven months after he came home from Vietnam. (Post-traumatic stress disorder was) huge and a host of other issues.”

Jerry Snyder also suffered a stroke. Kathleen Snyder diligently cares for him. During a special moment she tells him, “Doing OK, Jerry? I love you.”

Although Jerry Snyder is unable to speak normally, he replies, “Yes I love you, I love you.”

Kathleen Snyder said something in their Greeley home is causing Jerry's blood pressure to rise.

She fears the home's poor drainage system could cause mold to develop.

The solution is to grade the property to allow water to drain, but after paying for medical bills, it will be difficult to afford.

Kathleen Snyder said the stress isn't healthy for Jerry and very tough on her as she is running out of options to make their home safe.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to take donations.
