This person has left the following thank you note:

As you may have also experienced in your life, when an unexpected time of need presents itself, the stress and fear that arises are very difficult. December was a very difficult time for me, with much uncertainty and anguish about how I would financially get through my issue. I didn't know what to do or who to reach out to. Modest Needs provided a platform that allowed me the blessing to receive assistance from you all during my time of need. Words can't begin to express the gratitude I feel from your generosity. This assistance will truly help me get back on my feet and even more, I am inspired to pay it forward in the future for others who may be in need. Now that my vehicle is being repaired I am able to continue my treatment and work towards my goals thanks to your assistance. Thank you so much!

Recently Discharged Combat Vetaran Struggling with PTSD needs Help to Fix Her Car

My Story:

I am a single woman and Combat Veteran. I had a mental breakdown this year before realizing I needed to get help. I have devoted the greater part of this year getting the help I needed after experiencing a series of traumatic events in Afghanistan.

I am recently discharged and have had a hard time with the transition. Also, recently my vehicle broke down and the cost to repair is more than I can even fathom paying for. Please know that my vehicle has been my home on more than 3 occasions. After returning from Afghanistan I really struggled. I served there with a joint medical trauma team and had a series of horrific experiences that I couldn't come back from once returning home. Suffering from severe PTSD, major depression and anxiety disorder I couldn't take care of myself. My vehicle is my sense of security, the only thing that I really own. Please help me with these repairs.

I need this car to get to my appointments. I was getting so close to improving and the stress of this has truly set me back. I have to know that I have my car in case I become homeless again. I will soon have a new job and will be back on my feet. Losing my vehicle will set me back as I am terribly impaired by this anxiety. Your assistance would mean so much to me.
