Wife With M.S. And On CPAP Needs Assistance With Keeping The Electricity On!

My Story:

Our household is made up of my husband and I. We have been married for nineteen years and have no children. I have Multiple Sclerosis and am unable to work. My husband works for the city and is our main source of income.

We are turning to Modest Needs because we have fallen behind on our electric bill. This year has been hard on us, and we have had almost $1500 of paid medical bills to date. In addition, our electric bills were unusually high due to the heat this summer. My MS requires me to be in a cool environment so that I do not have a flare up, and I am also dependent on a CPAP machine. We are doing our best to catch up, but the problem has escalated so far that even my husband's overtime cannot help us prevent a disconnection.

Funding our request will really help out our household. It would ensure that our power will stay on, and allow me to keep my MS in check. I will be forever grateful for the kindness. Thank you.
