User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI am in shock and awe. I don't usually feel completely inspired by the world, but when I saw yesterday that my application had been fully funded, I was proven once again that there are people out there who do care and who will take action to help others. Thank you so, so much. I feel such a great feeling of relief over getting this money. It will truly help me out of a bad pinch and give me some breathing room and better options. Sassy thanks you as well. She woke me up early this morning by jumping on the bed to cuddle. She won't let me go back to sleep until I tuck her in underneath the blankets! Warmly, Jenny

Graduate Student Needs Rental Assistance due to Service Dog's Surgeries

My Story:

I am a graduate student in public health and work part-time as a health writer. My service dog, Sassy, is the cutest thing on Earth and loves food, giving kisses, and going to the beach with me. I earn exactly enough to pay for my basic expenses, but am currently living paycheck to paycheck. I had started a growing savings account, but currently wiped it all out. It started when Sassy was attacked by a pit bull and needed expensive emergency surgery. When I recovered from that financially, I discovered a few lumps on her abdomen which turned out to be aggressive tumors. Because of this I need Modest Needs' and your help to pay for my rent payment, which is late as of now. This funding will bring a great sense of relief to me, as well as making my rent payment stable so that I do not have to worry about my most basic need- housing. I plan on finding full-time employment very soon so that I can prepare for future emergency expenses.

As of 2017-03-22, this application has been fully funded!

This request for help was funded at the recommendation and through the support of Modest Needs' donors.

Application Status Update: On 2017-03-31, Modest Needs sent payment via Check in the amount of $507.75 to BJB Properties Inc on behalf of this deserving individual.
