User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI cannot express my gratitude to all of you. You chose to help my family in our biggest time of need and I truly dont think a thank you is good enough. Because of all you my family gets to keep our car and dont have to worry about when the bank is going to knock on the door asking for the keys due to repossession.

Help Save Veteran's Family Vehicle After Injury

My Story:

I am a 100% disabled army combat veteran who has 5 amazing sons. My youngest is a beautiful six month old baby boy who is learning how to crawl. My five year old son loves schoo,l god, and pokemon. My ten year old son is smart and also likes to play basketball and soccer. My 13 year old son is a keep to himself family man, he enjoys sitting by the fireplace watching a movie with us. My 16 year old son is fearless god loving young man who is a pure athlete, he does JROTC and wrestling. And the glue that holds all of us men in our place is my wife, she works at a local glass shop plus a full time mother taking care of us.

We fell behind on our car note due to me breaking my ankle in November. I make enough money alone to pay the rent insurance and utilities but my wife's income takes care of the rest. I was not able to walk and needed surgery, and had to go to the VA hospital every few days for medical appointments. My wife had to take time off of work to take care of me which caused a financial set back. We need Modest Needs to help us with our car payment.

Without this help we will have no way of getting my family and self to our doctors appointments and to go grocery shopping. My wife will have to find a way to get back and forth to work and to get the kids to school. Your help will assist my family in seeing that there are still great people in this world and it will help my wife and I enjoy our Christmas with our family and not have to wonder when the bank is coming to get the car. My wife has started working again and we will be able to make our future payments.
