User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI want to say how so very grateful I am for the assistance I've received from you all and I can see there are do many selfless people in this world! It has been such a long past 6 months, but at this very moment I feel like I am coming up for air and feel like a very big weight has been lifted and no longer need to worry 24/7 if I am going to be able to financially make it to the next month. I can now focus on being the best mother I can be to my sweet baby boy. I am so thankful from the bottom of my heart!! This truly means the world and more!

Single Mother of Pre-mature New Born Needs Help With Car Payment

My Story:

I am a single mother of a precious baby boy. I work full time and I am the sole provider for us.

In July, I had an emergency c section at 36 weeks and an emergency surgery on my ear later that month. As a result. I was not financially prepared to be off work for so long. I was promised 12 weeks pay by my short term disability agent, and only received 7 weeks pay. I worked so hard to sell half my closet and other miscellaneous things around my house to pay for my bills and my child's healthcare, as he was in the NICU for 3 weeks I got a very large medical bill. Now that I'm back at work I have to pay for childcare as well. I am requesting Modest Needs help with my car payment.

I am getting calls left and right and they refuse to defer my loan and I fear if I do not pay it by the 13th they will look into repossession, on top of destroying my credit. This funding will allow me to finally be able to be back on track after all the stressors I have had in my life the past few months. I have never been in a position where I am desperate for money and this is severely affecting my ego and mental well-being to the point that I fear I am depressed.

As of 2017-12-15, this application has been fully funded!

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

Application Status Update: On 2017-12-22, Modest Needs sent payment via Check in the amount of $406.64 to Wells Fargo Dealer Services on behalf of this deserving individual.
