Help Mother of 3 Keep Her Car After Son Suffered Third Degree Burns

My Story:

I am a mother of three beautiful children. My oldest son is 15 years old and he has a heart for people and he loves the game of football. He went from playing on the junior varsity team to varsity in his freshmen year of High School. My daughter is turning 14 in a month, is a very vibrant, beautiful young lady who is such a girly-girl. She aspires to be an attorney. My youngest son is 9 and I call him my next President. He is creative and inventive. I work for the public school system as one of the front office secretaries.

Living paycheck to paycheck has been a task in my life. One day while I was out running errands, my daughter went to deep fry some french fries and the oil got too hot. The oil spilled out of the pot into the fire causing a bigger fire. The smoke alarm went off and my oldest told my daughter and my youngest son to get the dog and get out of the house. While he attempted to take the pot onto the patio the wind blew the fire up my son's right arm from his wrist to his inner elbow spilling the oil on the floor. He then slipped and the pot of fire and oil went all over his legs burning his right leg from his hip all the way to his toes and his left leg from right above his knee to his foot. He had to have several surgeries and he and I were together in the hospital for three and a half months. I had to go on unpaid leave. Which has put me in a true financial crisis. This horrific accident has caused us to need Modest Needs� help with my car note.

They are threatening to repossess my car. Which would be so devastating as I need my vehicle for work and to get my children back and forth from school. This support from Modest Needs will help me a great deal to take care of some other bills that are in the red as I can't seem to do it all. I would have some relief at least from this large bill and get the rest of our expenses on track. I would like to focus on my son healing and your help would allow me to do so.
