Thank you so much for helping our family in this time of need. It means the world to us that people that we don't know have reached out to help us when we need it most, this has such a trying time for us and your help gives us hope that there are kind, caring people in the world who are willing to help those in need. You help maintains some level of stability for our children who are already having to deal with so much since I have been so sick. I have faith that I will get better and for the lord has not given my husband and me three wonderful little angels to take their mommy away. God bless you!

Cancer Patient With Significant Medical Expenses Needs Help With Electric Bill

My Story:

My husband and I have three children and share a loving home together. In April, my husband got hurt and as a result lost his job. I continued working but recently was diagnosed with cancer and needed surgery to remove the affected lymph node. We had a financially difficult year, which has prevented us from staying current with everything.

Our biggest worry at the moment is becoming current with our electric bill. My hospital expenses really took a toll on us, and we exhausted our savings to pay off medical bills. I am currently getting ready for the next phase of treatment, and want to make sure that all of my bills are current, and that we are not disconnected in the process. Failing to do so might result in us spiraling and losing everything. We already live on a very tight budget, and try our best to save, but with everything this year, we have really fallen into a tough position

Your help will alleviate a ton of pressure from us, and allow us to go forward without being behind. You would be really helping and that would mean the world to my family. Thank you!
