We Are A Hardworking Family of 6. Please Help Save Our Home After Birth Complications.

My Story:

We are a married couple with 4 kids. We have 3 sons who are 8 years old, 4 years old, and 1 year old, and a 3 week old little girl. Our 4 year old has a rare genetic disorder call Methylamalonic Academia which has caused us a great deal of pain. He had to have a liver transplant in June 2017. We have recently found out that our daughter also is battling the same disorder and she too will need to have a liver transplant. Dad is a Direct TV Technician and Mom is a full time caregiver to the children.

Dad is the primary breadwinner and makes enough for basic needs and expenses but we live paycheck to paycheck and are unable to save money at the end of the month. March 26th I gave birth via C-section, and March 27th my daughter was placed in the NICU where she stayed until April 10th. Since her discharge, she has had daily doctors appointments. Due to us having only one vehicle, dad has been off for over 3 weeks. This has put us in a huge financial bind. We need Modest Needs to help us pay our rent. We are greatly concerned that if we can not pay May's rent it will cause us to fall further behind and we will be evicted.

Your help will give us the opportunity to finally be able to breath again. Dad plans on working more hours so we can finally try to save a little each month. Your help will have a great impact of our family in more than one way. It will show my oldest son it is okay to ask for help when you really need it and that there are amazing people out there who are willing to lend a helping hand.
