User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI can't say THANK YOU enough for your generosity and love!!! I am writing this from the hospital (here I am AGAIN!) and we just found out yesterday that my husband gets to have surgery on Monday to remove the plate that's been holding his busted hand together, and he will have to take another week off work: so this could not have come at a better or more needed time! I can't say thank you enough: I could fill up this entire page with thanks if I could! This is a blessing and you have ALL my love!

Missed Work due to Broken Hand: Please Help with Family Vehicle Payment

My Story:

I am a married mother of two. Our oldest, now 23, no longer lives at home. Our younger son is 12, and is such a creative and smart kid. He enjoys drawing, anime, sewing, and video games. I recently finished college, after attending off and on for several years, with a BA in Anthropology. Shortly after earning my degree, I was diagnosed with an incredibly rare neuromuscular disorder this past summer. My diagnosis has forced me to put my career on hold temporarily. My husband has been employed full-time as a chef at the commissary which provides food for the restaurants in our local airport, and also teaches Karate. We have two beautiful kitties, Smauge and Fonzie. Smauge is my support animal, and Fonzie is a lovable furball!

We earn enough to cover all of our bills, even though we tend to live from paycheck to paycheck. We don't have any savings, but we always have managed to make do. Then in late September, my husband suffered a serious break to his right hand and had to get surgery to repair the injury. This put him out of work for three full weeks, and he has been on light duty since. The loss of a full paycheck, and then reduced pay following the initial loss, have left us struggling to cover all of our bills.

We are asking for Modest Needs' help with our past-due vehicle payment. I have managed to make arrangements with some of our other monthly bills, but I fear If we cannot receive help with our car payment, we could face repossession or otherwise have to use the rent money to make this payment.

My husband has just been cleared to return to full duty at work, so this one-time help will get us back on track and back to where we need to be to maintain our expenses. We are truly thankful for the help of this community, and I am eternally grateful for your kindness and consideration.

As of 2017-02-02, this application has been fully funded!
