Couple With Back to Back Surgeries Need Rent Help

My Story:

I am a caring husband living with my wonderful wife and our two shih-tzu dogs. I work full time making medical supplies and my wife works as an office assistant.

We earn enough to pay our basic expenses every month, but we live check to check. We have down sized and cut things to make this possible. In November of 2018, my wife had to have spinal fusion surgery. She missed a full month of work and went back part time for about two weeks until returning full time. We were climbing out of the financial hole when I was diagnosed with cancer. I have had to miss work for sickness and tests. My surgery is scheduled for June 11th. Part of my lower jaw will be removed and reconstructed. I need Modest Needs help to cover my rent during this time I will be out.

This funding will relieve the stress from my wife while I wait for surgery. Short term and long term disability will only kick in after surgery. Once this does we will survive again, but in the meantime your help will mean everything to us. Thank you.
