Suffered a Stroke and Lost Wages, Please Keep My Lights On

My Story:

I am a single 49 year old mother of two amazing sons. My oldest is a medic and my youngest is getting ready for college. I work two jobs as a medical assistant and retail associate.

I had a stroke last year and lost time from work which in turn caused me to fall behind on all my expenses. I am now playing the catch up game and I am struggling to do so. I am hoping and praying that I can get your assistance with my electric bill since it will be cut off soon. After catching up with my rent, I had nothing left for my light bill.
Your assistance will keep my electric on and bring me current on all of my bills. I am working more hours at my second job which will become a full time job after January. I will be able to maintain all bills moving forward but just need Modest Needs help two fully catch up. Thank you.
