Father of 5 Missed Work for Wife's Brain Tumor, Please Help With Rent

My Story:

I am the married father of 5 wonderful children. My wife had a brain tumor causing us to go through all of our savings. She has a very good prognosis and is doing very well. We have four girls and one boy; our oldest is 17, and the youngest is 6. My 12 year old daughter wants to be a surgeon. I am in sales and spend a large amount of time away from home.

We need help for one month of rent. I can get back to paying everything on my own after this. We are down to only days before eviction and will be living on the street without some type of help. My wife has had 2 open head brain surgeries. The positive news is that she should recover. She is now on full disability. Without assistance we will be homeless with no where to go.

I fear what this could do to my children. We have no other family with means to help. This funding will make us current from here. I try to teach my children that they also will have a responsibility to give back to their fellow man. Things like this stand as examples that there is good in this world. Your help would mean more than you know.
