I am sorry to hear about all that. It is definitely your right to appeal your denial. You will first want to file a notice of disagreement with your regional office as soon as possible. This will establish a record of your having disagreed with their decision. It is simply a letter saying that you received their decision and disagree with it. If you have any questions about this or the steps following the submission of the NOD, please call our office toll-free at 877-838-2889. We have attorneys on hand to help you find the forms and other resources you need.
