Buying New Tires Could Cost This Retiree Her Home

The Details:

I am a 68-year-old woman who lives alone. While I am officially retired, I also work as a freelance interpreter, but because of health issues have not been able to work much for the past three months.

I've been dealing with a lot of car related expenses lately. I had to replace a wheel, tires, and do an alignment on my car. The cost has put me one month behind on my mortgage. I am forced to choose between paying my mortgage and paying for the rest of my utilities and insurance. I am afraid to lose my home if I get two months behind.

The funding will help me get current with my bills and give me peace of mind. I am currently under doctor's care and once my health is better I will be able to work more hours at my job as an interpreter and be able to save money for emergency situations.
