User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI'm not exactly sure how to put how I feel into words, as I could barely sort out my emotions when I got the email stating my application was being funded. I wanted to cry, laugh and scream from happiness all at once. All of my donors didn't have to help but they did! It's amazing how many people can come to together to help when in need. There really are good people out there! This will help us tremendously with catching up on our rent payment which means we wont lose our home for our family! My deepest and sincerest thank you's go to each and everyone of you!!

Parents of 3 Need Rental help Due to Back Injury

My Story:

My husband and I have 3 daughters who are 14, 11 and 8. The oldest is very artistic and loves to draw and do graphic design. The younger 2 are very athletic and love to play softball and basketball. My husband works full time as a machine operator at Unilever making ice cream. I work part time at a local time shirt store.

About a month ago my husband was admitted to the hospital. He has 2 vertebrae causing a bundle of nerves in his back. We have at least 3 doctor appointments a week to attempt to fix this without surgery. He was put on short term disability. While awaiting payment this put us in a severe financial bind. We need Modest Needs help in paying our rent. We are so scared of losing our home or vehicle.

This funding will help us tremendously!! If we could just catch up on one thing, then we would have stability in our life. My husband will be able to focus on getting healthy and back to his full income. I am asking my employer for more hours so we will not be put in this situation again. Thank you so much.

As of 2017-06-07, this application has been fully funded!

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