Help Single Mother Get Back on Track After Loss of Son

My Story:

I was married with a home and a son for many years. I worked as an LPN in Pediatrics in St Louis MO where we relocated in 2001 so my son, Kyle, could await a donor for a double lung transplant. He received his organs in 2003! Thanks to a wonderful and selfless family who suffered the loss of their daughter and donated her organs. We had many good years together as a family. In 2013 Kyle passed away at age 20 from chronic rejection. My husband left us and his job prior to that and I ended up with huge medical and funeral costs in my name. I had to move out of the home where we lived into an apartment. I have a dog, his name is Goodfella! He is my life now.

I live month to month since I have been living alone. I work 6 days a week, have no savings and used all of my 401K. I had to lease a new car and this took every last dollar I made to pay each month. I am asking for Modest Needs help to pay my rent. Because of this new car, I am forced to chose between rent and my other bills.

I do my best. I work all the time. I have no savings but that is not in my immediate future. I am responsible and really just need any help I can to continue moving forward. This funding would allow me to keep providing for myself as I am on my own now. Thank you for your help. God bless.
