We Need Mortgage Help due to Family Member's Medical Emergency

The Details:

We are a married couple with one puppy. I work full-time and my husband is currently seeking employment.

While I am ordinarily able to cover our bills, we encountered hardship in December of 2016 when we learned that my father had a medical emergency and needed help. The travel costs and missed work put us behind on our bills, and we are still struggling to get back on track.

We are asking for Modest Needs to help us catch up with our mortgage payment. This will make it possible for us to get everything else current again.

We are aware that taking this trip was not the right decision financially, but family comes first and this was the right thing to do for my father. Now we're just trying to get our heads above water again. It would be such a wonderful relief to be caught up, and we hope to be able to come back and help others on this site in the future.
