Diabetic Father of 2 Missed Work Due to Amputation, Please Help Save Our Car

My Story:

I am married father of two adorable kids. My daughter is 4 years old and son 6 months old. We also have a family dog named Jalapeno. I work as a security guard at a high school, and my wife works at a nursing home.

I have diabetes, and not long ago, I got a bad sore on the big toe of my right foot. I ended up going to the hospital, and I thought the doctors there would probably bandage my wound & send me home. Instead, my toe had to be amputated. I ended up in the hospital for more than a week and was out of work for a few months while I recovered from this major procedure. During that time, I wasn't paid, and my wife had to find another job to support us. We already live paycheck to paycheck and this situation really put us in a difficult spot. I'm back to work now and we've caught up on most of our bills, but we're still behind on our car payment, and if we don't pay it soon, we're going to lose the only way my wife & I have to get to work.

We are asking Modest Needs to assist us with our car payment. Our vehicle is the only way for us to get to work and I am afraid that we won't be able to have our car without your assistance. If you help us with this payment, we'll be able to continue to provide for our kids, which is all we really want. We would really appreciate any help from kind, generous people like you. Thank you!
