This person has left the following thank you note:

User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI truly appreciate the help you've given my family paying off our medical bill. I am also grateful for the sacrifices that you made to help. There's no way I can repay each one of you, but I can repay your generosity and your legacy by helping others in need. I suppose that when faced with an insurmountable problem, we tend to focus on ourselves and not think about others facing similar problems. Your willingness to sacrifice and help a complete stranger has helped me get back on the right track after a detour and has bolstered my determination to help others again. Once again, thank you for your help and sacrifice.

We're Back to Work, but Need Help with Hospital Bills

My Story:

I am the proud father of two teenagers. My daughter is a sophomore in college and my son is a junior in high school. I work as a graphic designer and web developer. My wife works part-time as an office assistant.

Several years ago my wife and I were laid off within months of each other. We each found work as quickly as we could, but my wife was hospitalized around the same time. These circumstances wiped out our savings.

Recently, my wife was hospitalized again, this time with pneumonia. The portion of the bill our insurance did not cover and her time off from work is more than we can handle. We've been paying a little each month, but it's come to the point that they're threatening collection and garnishment.

Your help would take a giant burden off of our shoulders and relieve some of the stress We've been under. This grant from Modest Needs would allow us to remain current on our other bills and concentrate on getting our lives back on track.

As of 2017-05-18, this application has been fully funded!
