My Daughter Was Diagnosed With Rheumatoid Arthritis, Moving Costs Set Me Back

My Story:

I am a single mother of three children, ages 21, 17 & 14. My 21-year-old son is very helpful with his siblings. My 17-year-old daughter was very active in dance before her diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis. My 14-year-old son enjoyed playing the trombone in the middle school band before we moved to a new city and the high school does not offer band classes. I recently began working full-time as a Staff Consultant for a local CPA firm and this is the first time I feel like my career has the potential to grow.

My daughter was diagnosed with a chronic illness in June 2016 and required medical treatment in a city that was 2 hours away. I missed a lot a work and took leave without pay during hospital stays that were up to a week long. I was forced to quit my job and move from Tallahassee to Gainesville to be closer to my daughter's treatment facility. I started another job right away, but the short gap in employment and moving expenses have put me behind.

If I receive assistance with my rent, I would be most gracious. This will put me back on track and allow me to avoid late fees that make it a struggle to catch up. I could rest so much easier knowing that I will be able to continue giving the best care possible to my daughter.
