Retired Vet Used Rent Money To Pay For Car Repairs

My Story:

I am a retired disabled veteran with a wife and two children ages 11 and 17. I served in Iraq in 2001-2002. Our family is very close. We love to go on trips when possible and hang out with our dog at the park. My son plays sports and daughter is in dance and in band. I was a truck driver until my mental health would not allow me to drive again. My wife is going back to school for nursing. She worked as a CNA for 10 years now she is fulfilling her dream of being a Nurse.

My family is living paycheck to paycheck being that I get disability and my wife works part time at a retirement home. She is in school and plan to finish by December to become a full-time nurse. Our only car had to be repaired and we were forced to use our rent money. I dont want to have to put my family thru living with relatives or homeless in a shelter.

The funding will bring our household current on our rent and will help our family keep our home in a stable environment My wife is soon graduating from nursing school and she will be starting a new job as a full-time nurse. We would like for our family to continue to believe in the fact that people can truly make a difference in the lives of others, and use this as our encouragement to stay strong and know can and will make it, when financial struggles arrive.
