A Hip Replacement Put Me Behind On Our Mortgage. The Bank is Threaening to Foreclose. Please Help!

My Story:

I am a single mother of two girls. One is 13 years old and the other is 8 years old. I work a full time and I also got another part time job for additional income. Work consumes most of my time, but when free, I love to spend every moment with my daughters.

With two jobs, I earn just enough to pay my monthly bills, but we live paycheck to paycheck & don't make enough to save for anything. Recently, I received a total hip replacement at the age of 45. The surgery couldn't wait because I couldn't keep working with my bad hip, but at the same time, I do not have any sick or vacation time to cover my leave. I'm recovering and already back to work part time, and I should be back to full time soon. But with the income we've lost and the surgery deductible, we've gotten behind on the mortgage and our bank is talking about taking the home we've been paying on time for more than ten years!

We don't have any family or friends with the money to help us, so I'm asking if you could please, please help us pay our past due mortgage. It's only one month. This funding will allow me to keep our home, and once I am back to full-time work, I will be able to continue living a normal life and have enough to provide for myself and my girls. I will never forget you and am so glad I can come her to ask for help from nice people.
