User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeThanks so much for your generous help with the car repair. I am a low income senior, with two small grandsons. They lost their mother and I try to make them happy with little trips for ice cream and bowling. My car is essential to help with the boys and since I don't have much money it is almost impossible to fix the car when it unexpectively breaks down. I am trying to pay it forward by helping my good friend who has dementia, by visiting her and helping to get her things organzed for sale. Her family found her a good group home so they will be selling her thing to help supplement the cost. So once again, thank you for helping myself and my family with this expense. Diane

Car Repairs For Disabled Granny

My Story:

Hi all. My daughter passed away, and left her two boys with me. I have not been able to work in 5 years due to terrible arthritis. My car is ten years old and needs several repairs. The most important are the tie rods, which control the steering on the car.

Since I drive the two boys around to school and activities, the tie rods present a danger of the steering getting very loose. My daughter was only 34 years old when she died and of course there was only bills, not inheritance for the boys. I would appreciate any help you can give me.
