Couple Needs Mortgage Assistance After Medical Expenses

My Story:

We are a married couple who enjoys each others company. I work part time as a cook at a nearby school.My husband is retired due to health issues. It is just us in our household.

After working 27 years at the same job my husband lost his job 4 years ago. Since then we have had many struggles, with his health and our finances. He developed rheumatoid arthritis. Shortly after that he developed lymphoma and leukemia. He had an unsuccessful bone marrow transplant in 2017 and recently had another one in November 2018. He was hospitalized for 2 months. It has been very difficult on us financially. We are living on social security. We have no pension. I am not working right now as I have to be his caretaker for at least 3 months. We really need help with our house payment.

I am afraid we will lose our house and that will be one more thing to deal with. I don't burden my husband with all of our financial difficulties as he has enough to deal with. Your assistance will take some of the stress out of our lives during a very stressful time. It will allow us to get caught up and focus on my husband's health.
