89 Year Old Woman Needs Help With Balance of Costly Home Repairs

My Story:

I am 89 years old living on my fixed income of social security. My only daughter helps me when she can, she works full time. I am on oxygen 24/7 and find it difficult to get around.

Two months ago I had 2 major repairs happen, 3 or 4 gas leaks and on the same day a pipe burst underneath the kitchen floor. This was an emergency and had to get the repairs done ASAP for my safety. This was an enormous expense and I am on a very tight budget, so I do not know how I will ever get this fully paid. I need Modest Needs help with this cost.

My homeowners insurance paid nothing, leaving me with this huge balance. This funding will help me very much as I can barely pay my bills as it is. I thought this late in my life that I would not have to worry about my finances especially when I am in such bad health. I hope you find it in your hearts to help me in any way you can.
