All the persons who gave so much are forever in my heart. Hitting my knees when the funding was completed, expressed my answered prayers of my.

The restoration of hope I have will be for the another and will only be by giving back as quickly as was given to me. Thank you seems so simple in compairison to what was so greatly given. As my eyes are full of greatful tears, Please accept my humble THANK YOU. Blessings my family.

Missing Work while Recovering from Illness: Please Help Me Stay in My Home

My Story:

I am a single 59-year-old woman, and the only person in my household. I work full-time to support myself and have no other sources of support. I do have a therapy dog, who brings me comfort when all else seems dark.

I work as a receptionist at a Pilot site. When the area underwent full construction, the fumes and dust began to aggravate some of my health issues. I went to see a doctor who prescribed me a medication that caused a bad reaction and made me very ill. I was temporarily unable to work, and because I have only been with my employer for a short while, I do not have any paid time off from my job. With no pay coming in, I have not been able to meet my financial obligations and the pressure is overwhelming.

I am asking for help to pay my rent. I have no place where I can go and be safe while recovering from illness, and will be evicted if I cannot pay the past due balance very soon.

The stress is making my recovery process even slower, but I look forward to soon returning to the job I truly love. I am grateful to be able to return to my job when I am well. Your help would make all the difference for me in the meantime, and will have a lasting, positive impact on my situation.
