To each person who donated toward my funding at Modest Needs: You are kind and you promote generosity in the world. You have helped my husband and I to get my medical bill for skin cancer, to get paid in full. You have helped us so much... Because of you, I will become a donor to Modest Needs, so I too can help others who need temporary financial assistance. Thank you for each money donation you gave to help us and thank you for your kindness.

Retired Couple Needs Help With Skin Cancer Treatment

My Story:

I live with my husband and our cat in our mobile home. My husband and I are both retired and our only source of income is our social security.

We live on a fixed income and have a very tight budget. I have been diagnosed with skin cancer and need treatment. The co-pay for my treatment is $500. I need to pay this bill as soon as possible. I had cryosurgery done on October 31st and the first week of December I paid $42.00 toward the total. It is impossible to come up with the rest. I need Modest Need help with he remaining balance of this bill.

This funding will bring our household current with our of our monthly bills. This would allow us to not get behind in other expenses. Thank you.
