I just checked my account and saw the account was funded at 100%! Oh my goodness! Thank you so much! I have been back to work for a few weeks and have been trying desperately to work overtime, but the overtime is not available. You have no ideal how much this means to me not to have to worry about where next months funds for the house payment where come from. Thank you all for kindness and generosity! You will never know how much I truly appreciate it!

Former Marine Won His Battle With Cancer. Please Help Him Fully Recover Financially.

My Story:

I am a veteran and the father of two awesome teenage boys. I have been married for 20 years. My wife is on disability and unable to work because she suffers from the side effects of her battles with acute leukemia and breast cancer. I am just starting back to work, after being off for two months for my own cancer treatment. This is actually my second fight with cancer in a little over two years.

I had only been back to work for a year and a half after beating Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma when I was diagnosed with prostate cancer, right before the Christmas of 2017. We did not have the time or opportunity to build up a savings account to help us through this new battle with cancer. After this unexpected diagnosis of cancer, we are in a financial bind between missing work and the medical bills-and the diagnoses had to come right before Christmas! We need Modest Needs' help to stay current on our mortgage.

We've made it through our latest medical crisis but find ourselves in a financial bind. We need your help getting our lives back to normal. The relief of not worrying about keeping our house will allow me to focus on my recovery. This would relieve so much stress and we would be so grateful to you. Thank you for reading our story!
