Veteran Needs Help With Car Repairs

My Story:

I've been married to my wonderful wife for 17 years. We live on my VA Disability and Pension each month. My wife loves to crochet blankets and make jewelry. She attends to family members' needs such as her elderly mother who suffers from medical issues and her sister who is on oxygen full time. We also have my wife's nephew who is an autistic 23year-old and cannot live independently. My wife used to be a PCA and HHA, so she knows what to do.

Our truck, the only transportation we have has cost us so much. Last fall we paid for multiple repairs totaling over a thousand dollars. Now we have more issues, and our savings has already been spent on this truck. This is the only vehicle in this household, we do not have the financial means to trade it in. I have VA appointments and my wife and family has to get to doctor appointments.

Once our truck is fixed we can get back on track with our monthly bills. I have been stressing out to the point my chest pains are back and I have been taking more nitro pills to calm down. I already had a heart attack followed by Quadruple by-pass surgery three years ago. Your generosity will allow us some much needed breathing space.
