Dear Modest Needs, Words will never be able to express how greatful and how much you have blessed our family in this time of need. I realize that no one ever thinks that their child would be parolized from an auto accident, but when this happened to our family it became an emotional and financial strain. Modest Needs you are truly a big blessing, and lately it seemed that nothing was going right, and life kept dishing out bad news. But when we recieved the 'Congratulations' your application for assistance has been approved', we were shocked, and so happy. We thought maybe there is a light at the end of this tunnel. I just want you to know that we so very much appreciate everything you have done to make this be approved, and every donation that helped to make our mortgage payment. Modest Needs is truly a 'God Send' and I hope God blesses you all for your kindness and giving. Thank you so much!!! P.S. Please pray for a miracle for Derek, I know God can do that, maybe we just need more prayers. Sincerely greatful, Patty
Son Paralyzed From Crash-Need Help
My nineteen year old son was in a major car accident just two days before Thanksgiving. He was ejected from the vehicle and broke his neck in two places. We were told he would never walk again. He is now paralyzed.
He has already undergone several major surgeries and still has to undergo major plastic surgery to his head, neck and back once the infections are gone. He had a tracheotomy put in and is on a breathing machine. At this time he is listed in critical but stable condition.
Not only is this a mother's worse nightmare but it couldn't have happened at a worse time. Being it was the holidays, we should've been at home rejoicing. Instead, we are sleeping in a hotel and campers near the hospital, staying by our son's side and praying for a miracle that he will one day walk again.
Unfortunately, we are now struggling to pay our mortgage due to all the unexpected expenses we have now incurred. We pray that you find it in your hearts to help our family during this time of need and we thank you for your kind consideration of our application. Thank you.
