Epilepsy - Need Electric Bill Help

My Story:

Thank you so much for all the charitable work that you have done and continue to do for our community. I am a single parent of 3. I was recently diagnosed with Epilepsy and have not been able to go back to work since January. Prior to January, I was a teacher for 7 years in the public school system. This experience has taught me that you never know what life may bring, but you must always keep your head high.

I know that I will overcome this illness eventually. Right now, I am doing the best that I can to provide stability for my kids. My cousin, who is also a single parent, has recently moved to Georgia to assist me in overcoming my struggles. We are currently roommates. Unfortunately, our bills have really gotten out of control. She has recently been laid off and is receiving unemployment benefits. My only source of income is child support. We are both working diligently to provide for our children.

Please consider us for this grant, though we know that there are so many in need right now in this grief-stricken economy. As I stated before, all your efforts are greatly appreciated.
