User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI want to thank each and everyone that helped fund our need. This has helped our family more than you all know. With having a daughter with special needs and me having multiple sclerosis it makes times hard because I can't work and all of you helped to get us back on the right track. Without this funding we would have had to keep putting things more behind because every other month my daughter requires medication from Canada that insurance doesn't cover and now we know that we can get those and not have to worry. My older daughter can continue her extra curricular activities to help keep her on a healthy and positive track. We are so greatful for this foundation and all of the donors. Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.

Unexpected Car Repair After Traveling To Care For Our Sick Mother

My Story:

I am a married mother of three girls. My husband is the sole provider since I have to be home to care for our 8-year-old disabled daughter. She is a very happy kid that wants nothing more than to play with other kids. We also have a 10-year-old daughter who has her fair share of medical issues but she is very active and loves to play with friends. Along with all of this I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2015.

My husband is a hard worker and we make it each month even if it is tight. However, when we received the unexpected news of my mother in law being diagnosed with Gillian-Barre syndrome, we had to travel to Florida to help her and it took a toll on my vehicle. After we returned home I had to take it to the shop and we paid a very high repair bill. We have to travel across the country every year for my daughter's medical care because there is only one clinic in the world for her treatment. Having our car repaired wasn't something we could put off. So now we are stuck trying to figure out how to pay our monthly car payments, and we need Modest Needs help.

This funding will help us to be able to make my daughters yearly trip to Duke. The long-lasting impact could be lifesaving, truly, because without the doctors that my daughter sees she wouldn't be here today. Thank you for your generosity, it means more to us than you can imagine.
