Husband With Brain Cancer, Need Help With Mortgage

The Details:

I am 65 years old. I was an over the road truck driver for 30 years. I received my 3 million safe mile award in 2015. My wife is 60 years old and has congestive heart failure.

On 02/13/2015 I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. It was removed and we got the pathology report it was cancer, anaplastic meningioma grade III. So I started 30 days of radiation, and given an all clear! I continued with MRIs every 6 months. On 11/29/2016 the MRI showed the tumor had returned. To date I am continuing to have complications of the radiation treatment. On 5-15-17 I had second tumor surgery. 2 days after surgery I started having seizures , and am left with limited use of right arm and leg. I am going to rehab 4 days a week. With all the bills from cancer and rehab we are in need of help. We need Modest Needs help with our mortgage bill. We are now forced to choose between paying for our mortgage and paying for our utilities. We are worried that we could eventually lose our home.

This funding will give me time to recover from my surgery and return to work part time for a local farmer. Your help will relieve a lot of the stress in our household and get us back on track. We thank you for your kindness in our difficult time!
