Please Help This Single Mother Of a Special Needs Child With His Medical Bill
I am a single mother of one son. He is 16 years old, has autism, and loves the great outdoors when he is not feeling sick. He also enjoys basketball and exploring arts and crafts. I work full-time as an engagement specialist, helping people deal with health conditions. When I am not working, I love to attend church and volunteer to help at risk youth. I hope that someday I am able to start a non-profit organization that provides support and assistance to family members that care for special needs children and adults.
I earn enough to pay for some basic expenses every month, but we tend to live paycheck to paycheck. This has not always been the case, but recently I have had to neglect some household expenses to make sure the medical bills are being paid. If I do not continue to make payments on the medical bills, the hospital will refuse to continue to provide services for my son. The past year has been a complete nightmare for me! I was forced to leave my apartment due to my vehicle being shot by masked gunmen who were trying to rob and kill my neighbor. It left me an emotional wreck and I feared for the safety of my family, so I had to pay to break my lease so that I could move to a safer environment. That really set my family back financially. While all of this is going on, my health took a turn for the worst. As a result, I now have increasingly high medical bills in addition to my son's medical expenses. We are asking for Modest Needs to pay for one of our medical bills.
This funding will definitely lift the financial and emotional burden off of us. It will bring our household closer to stabilization with our bills, and restore our sense of security. Any assistance is appreciated during this difficult time. Your help will make a long-lasting impact on our family. I have not been able to peacefully rest at night for the past year because the only thing my mind is consumed with is medical bills. I would like to be happy again. I have always felt alone dealing with my special needs child, but your support will show me that there are actually people in this world that care. Thank you so much for your time and consideration.
As of 2018-08-11, this application has been fully funded!
This request for help was funded at the recommendation and through the support of Modest Needs' donors.
