User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI would like to first and foremost give my deepest appreciation to all of those who have went out of their way to help me in my sincere time of need . Words cannot express how grateful I am! To be honest, I was a little skeptical or discouraged rather, that no one would want to help me, Especially strangers for that matter. The Modest needs family has most definetly lifted a huge weight off of my shoulders and I am so thankful to be able to catch up on my rent . I am now reassured that there are still AMAZING people in this world and all it takes is a little faith . Sending all my Love & thanks, Jada

Back To Work After Life Changing Diagnosis, Get Me Back On Track

My Story:

I am a 25-year-old single female living alone. I currently work for the University of Maryland in the department of OB/GYN as a Medical Assistant. I have been employed at my current job for the past 2 years.

Typically, I make enough to pay for my basic expenses every month. Earlier this year I was newly diagnosed with an Auto-immune disease. This illness has caused me to miss a huge chunk of time off of work, and has caused me a great deal of stress and inconvenience in my life. I absoulutely do not want to stop working, so I do what I can to get by regardless of how I am feeling. I've been able to more or less return to my regular schedule, but the time I missed has cost me.

If Modest Needs' were to help pay for my rent payment, which is one month behind, it would catch me back up. Any help allotted to me through Modest Needs would make a long-lasting impact on me and my situation. I truly believe that there are still people out here in the world that can make a difference in the lives of others. On a normal day, I am that person to those around me. I would greatly appreciate it if I could receive any kind of support in my sincere time of need.
