Single Mom Seeking Certification Funds to Become Medical Assistant

My Story:

I am a single mother of four beautiful girls, who are between the ages of 11 and 18. My oldest has cerebral palsy and is wheelchair bound. I am a homemaker and unemployed at present, and seek the opportunity to make a change for my family by becoming a Certified Medical Assistant.

I am asking for assistance from Modest Needs in order to pay for the certification exam needed to start my new career. I have completed the coursework and all that is left is to take the exam. Being a single parent has made it difficult to afford the costly exam, and I wouldn't be able to do it without assistance.

The funding of my request would not just be a short-term solution, but a long-term answer for the future of my family. It would mean a secure, financial livelihood for us and I would merit the support of Modest Needs for passing the Medical Assistant Exam. Thank you so much!

As of 2012-08-18, this application has been fully funded!

This request for help was funded at the recommendation and through the support of Modest Needs' donors.

Application Status Update: On 2012-08-20, Modest Needs sent payment via Credit / Debit Card in the amount of $105.00 to on behalf of this deserving individual.
