Thank you so much for your generosity. Your gift means so much to me and my family and I need you to know that it will be well used for the medical needs of my child. It is a relief to know that is still people out there that care for others and that they are willing to help no matter the sacrifice they have to do, without even knowing those people. This is truly an example and motivation to me so In the future I can help others without hesitating. I understand that words might not be enough, but from the bottom of my heart thank so much.

Large Family With Disabled Son Needs Expensive Car Repair to Transport to Doctors Appointments

My Story:

There is six of us in the family, including my four kids, my husband and me. My husband's English is limited. He works full time as a janitor and I work part time as the caregiver of my disabled son. My older one is 20 and is a full time student in college. My daughter is 18 and she is a full time student who just started college. They both like going to school because they would like to find better job opportunities. My disabled child is almost 14 and he loves sports especially baseball, basketball and soccer. He likes going to school and smiles all the time. My younger one is 9 and he likes playing soccer and loves to build legos.

Our car has not been working properly for the last 18 months. One of the back doors doesn't work at all, the other one on the back doesn't always open and the driver's side air bag doesn't work either. We need this vehicle mostly to take our disabled child to medical appointments. Unfortunately our income is not sufficient to pay an extra bill. It's really scary having to drive your car when is not working right because I don't know when or where my vehicle will stop working. We need Modest Needs help with this repair.

After what my family has been through we will learn that there is charitable people out there and my kids will see that angels do live on earth. It will also be a relief not having to worry about another bill anymore and or thinking where our car will stop. Also I will focus on trying to get another part time job, then starting saving for a down payment for a house. I will hopefully give back the home to my kids that once was taken away, so that they are in a safe neighborhood again.
