User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI can't even begin to say how grateful I am for your help. To simply tell you that I am surprised would be an enormous understatement, though I don't know how else to describe this feeling. I have now actually seen the compassion of others right in front of my own eyes, and I am still incredulous. It is so easy to only see the negative side of people in our world today, but each one of you, who read about my situation and chose to make a difference in my life, have opened my eyes to the kindness of people. You have personally inspired me, and I can not wait until the day I am able to show the same kindness to another person in need.

E.R. Visit: Can't Cover Co-Pay

My Story:

My boyfriend and I both work for the public schools in our community. We love spending time with our two cats, Lemon and Tars, and we love to cook together. We are also amateur musicians on nights and weekends when we have the time.

We usually make enough money every month to make ends meet for our little household, but it does get tight at times. After paying rent and utilities, student loan payments, and insurance, there often isn't much leftover. When I recently had an unexpected trip to the hospital, I was very lucky to have my health insurance. But the high co-pay still put us over our available funds.

Since we chose to pay our monthly rent instead of this hospital bill, this bill remains unpaid. I fear that if we can't pay it soon, we will be sent to collections and ruin our credit.Your help with this bill will really put us back on our feet again. Starting our careers has been difficult, but your assistance will carry us into our future with confidence. I can't overstate how much that would mean for us as young teachers.
