Single Mother With Cancer Needs Assistance Affording Her Propane For Heating and Cooking

My Story:

I am a divorced, single mother living with my child, who is 18 and a senior in high school. I worked in a nursing facility for 12 years before being diagnosed with cancer last year. I immediately went through radiation and chemotherapy and have not been able to return to work yet. I am receiving disability and support my son on a fixed income.

As my income situation changed drastically and a fixed income does not permit us to save, I am currently in dire need to afford my propane for heating and cooking. I am worried that we will not able to afford this crucial yearly expense, which is so important for the coming fall and winter months. Since being diagnosed I have cut out all non-essential expenses and still just barely make ends meet.

Receiving this help from Modest Needs would ensure the fact that we will have heating this winter, and a huge burden will be taken from my shoulders. I am more worried for my son, and am doing what I can to provide for him, but this expense has proven too much. I would be exceptionally grateful for your help and consideration.
