User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeMy family is completely overwhelmed by the response we have received from Modest Needs. We are very grateful to each and every one of the people who chose to donate to our family. It has been a rough few months. It honestly felt like every time we turned around we hit another wall, another challenge. You don't want your kids to know that their health struggles and injuries are causing such financial hardship so you do everything you can so they do not feel bad, that they don't apologize when they accidentally fall and break an ankle. I am looking forward to sharing this news with them now. That yes, mom and dad needed help when we had problems, but there are good people in this world who come together to help each other. I want them to know this so they can grow up to do the same for others in their future. I know my wife and I will be paying this forward with our actions and hopefully by one day donating to others in situations like ours.

Family of 7 Struggling with Unexpected Bills

My Story:

I am a married father of 5, 4 boys and 1 girl. I work full time trying to provide for my family. Unfortunately our second youngest son is quite ill with a life threatening disease and my wife must stay home to be his permanent caregiver and take him weekly to doctors and therapies.

Lately things have gotten particularly difficult and we are having trouble making ends meet. Two of our other children have had unexpected medical needs. Our daughter broke her ankle and despite having insurance we have a lot of medical bills associated to it and will have more in the future. My son's handicapped van also had car repair bills including a set of brand new tires last month. With paying for our son's medical care there is nothing left to save to pay for these unexpected hardships. We would like Modest Needs to pay for our car payment which is late.

We cannot lose this van as its the only way we are able to transport our family and especially our handicapped son. This funding will help my family so much right now. It will give us a chance to start to get back on our feet after these bills and get closer to being caught up. You will make a lasting impact on our lives and most importantly on the lives of my children especially my disabled son. I truly appreciate that there are people willing to help and I want to teach my children that when we can help we will do the same.
